|Description:||The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology – Automation and Robotics (Fast Track) program is designed for qualified college or university graduates of engineering and science programs. If you qualify, you will gain direct admission into year two (semester three) of this three-year program and receive an advanced diploma in two years (four semesters). During your time in the offering, which is facilitated by the School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science, you will gain a thorough understanding of theory, along with practical, hands-on laboratory experience.
In this program: You will learn the basic technology used in building and operating automated industrial systems: programmable logic controls (PLCs), hydraulics, pneumatics, electronics and robotics.
Special attention will be given to embedded systems using micrcontrollers, quality control using vision inspection and SPC, and continuous feedback control using PID. You will learn integration of automated equipment through its design, fabrication and installation. From packaging to car radiators, automated systems play a part in manufacturing almost any item you can think of. Because they are essential in all industries from automotive to pharmaceutical and food, you will be in high demand.
