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. Develop skills in industrial automation, robotics, control systems, machining, hydraulics, pneumatics, safety, mechatronics, 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.
Our program builds upon the solid technical foundation of the technician program. The technology graduate is prepared to enter a wider range of careers. The skills first learned in the technical 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 size modern equipment. The industry relevant curriculum is taught by faculty at the top of their fields to provide you with the skills and knowledge employers are looking for.
Our advisory committee provides regular review and input of our curriculum ensuring our program is always on the cutting edge of industry developments.
Courses Program Standards
Our program features an optional, paid work placement directly related to your program of study. The work experience is designed to enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in an actual work environment, as well as enhance your employability upon graduation. The work experience occurs after the completion of Semester 4 for a minimum of 400 hours. Humber provides a range of services to support student success including working with business, industry and government to identify employment opportunities.

This program offers the latest in automation and robotics. Students are trained on modern robots (Fanuc, Motoman, Kuka, Wittman, Panasonic) and do automation welding on a state-of-the-art Panasonic welding robot.
Students gain hands-on experience with leading edge technologies. Our labs include an extensive range of modern industrial robots and control systems.
Congratulations to Theodor Willert and Avery Bird for placing first, Russell Farrell and Mateusz Cwalinski for placing second, Taylor Reid and Markus Laanes for placing third, and David van Amelsvoort and Andrew Vaz for placing fourth in the Electromechanical Skills Exhibition!
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 School of Applied 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.
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, component testing, technical sales 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, maintenance, 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.
This program has met national technology accreditation requirements as defined by the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists
(CCTT) and has received national accreditation status by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB).
Note: The requirements for licensure are determined by the granting body, which is independent from Humber College. Students are encouraged to obtain the specific requirements directly from the granting body before enrolling.
In an incredible showcase of both skill and accuracy, the Humber Mechatronics teams shined in the Ontario Technology Skills Competitions of 2016.
