Humber is proud to have the highest graduate employment and employer satisfaction rate of the GTA colleges based on Colleges Ontario’s key performance indicators for college graduates in 2022-2023.

Program Overview

In Humber’s Electromechanical Engineering Technology advanced diploma program, you’ll learn how to support the engineering activities of manufacturers that rely increasingly on automation technology to maintain a competitive edge in the global economy. You will develop skills in industrial automation, robotics, control systems, machining, hydraulics, pneumatics, safety, mechatronics, microcomputer-based automation, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), automation welding, machine elements and computer-control methods. You will also learn to decipher mechanical and electrical schematic drawings, and use electrical and mechanical diagnostic tools.

Students are encouraged to be a part of an annual provincial and National Skills competition in mechatronics, a prestigious competition among top institutions in Canada where Humber students consistently earn podium spots.

Our program builds upon the solid technical foundation of the Electromechanical Engineering Technician program, and graduates are prepared to enter a wider range of careers. The skills first learned in the technician program are enhanced through project-based learning and increased hands-on practice in the labs.

Complementing your technical education are the effective communications, problem-solving and interpersonal skills that add value to any team. Coursework reflects real-world demands through independent and co-operative study in practical environments including experience with industrial standard equipment. The curriculum is taught by faculty at the top of their fields providing you with the skills and knowledge employers are looking for.

Members from a wide variety of industries make up our advisory committee. They provide regular review and input of our curriculum ensuring our program is always on the cutting edge of industry developments.

Our program offers an optional co-op stream which has a strong and industry-connected placement centre. It trains students in professional practices, resume writing and interview skills, and connects students with industry partners.

Work-Integrated Learning  

This program offers an placement. Optional co-operative education placements enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in a work environment and gain valuable, practical experience related to your program of study. You will learn new skills, learn about the world of work and meet people in your profession.

For students who are accepted into the program, three optional co-operative education placements will take place. The first four-month optional co-operative education placement is between Semesters 2 and 3, and then two consecutive four-month optional co-operative education placements between Semesters 4 and 5. There are limited spaces in the co-op option. Therefore, you will apply for the co-op option during Semester 1 and be informed of the process by which to apply. While optional co-operative education placement opportunities are not guaranteed, as students are in a competitive job placement market, participating students will receive a wide range of services to help them find a co-op opportunity.

The Advanced Manufacturing Capstone Project Expo is the culmination of a students’ academic career at Humber College.

Omron Event

A team from Omron Canada Inc. put on an Automation Technology Showcase in the Humber LRC on Monday, March 26, 2018. Many students and faculty from the Faculty of Applied Sciences and Technology came to meet Omron’s solution experts and see robotics, sensing and safety technology in action. Students from all over the College were fascinated by the Autonomous Intelligent Vehicle that was wandering around the concourse greeting passers-by. 

Your Career

From robotics to mobile devices to automobiles and food processing, our graduates make their mark on process control, PLC programming, packaging, power generation, mining, machine design, building automated systems, maintenance, transportation, systems integration, quality control and a host of other fields. 

Other career opportunities include automation and robotics technologists in such areas as machine assembly, troubleshooting and testing, systems integration, application support, component testing and assembly, automation programming, robotic maintenance and programming, and technical sales and services. 

Automation systems integrators are needed to build, troubleshoot and maintain robotic and automated manufacturing cells, as well as mobile equipment. You will also find opportunities in purchasing, customer service, quality control and quality assurance.
