Program Overview

Humber’s Bachelor of Engineering program begins with a common platform of first year courses which provide foundational engineering knowledge and skills. Following the first year, the curriculum branches into three different discipline areas: Information Systems Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, and Sustainable Building Engineering. 

The Bachelor of Engineering – Mechatronics Engineering discipline gives you hands-on experience with industry-standard advanced technology. Beginning in the first year, you can choose a focus subject in either robotics or embedded systems. During the course of the program, students will solve real industry and community problems that involve mechatronics engineering as they gain knowledge and acquire skills in mechanical, electrical, electronics and computer engineering. Students use emerging and cutting-edge technologies in robotics, mechatronic systems design, control, electronics, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), motors, mechanical components, digital and analog circuits, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), machine learning, modelling, simulation, embedded systems, and advanced manufacturing. Each of these themes provides theoretical knowledge alongside hands-on training to complement a systems-thinking approach to solving real-world problems.

In addition, this program provides an opportunity to work on industry-led projects through multidisciplinary capstone projects as well as applied research opportunities. Through these experiences, students apply the theoretical knowledge gained during their education to solve real industry problems, while improving their professional skills such as teamwork, communication, collaboration and problem-solving.

This program is also offered at Sault College in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Students in the program will collaborate on activities using technology that will involve simultaneous learning at both colleges.
