Electro Mechanical Engineering Technician Program In a Nutshell
After two short years in Centennial College's Electro Mechanical Engineering Technician - Automation and Robotics program, students receive their Ontario College Diploma and are prepared to enter positions in manufacturing sectors that include: automotive, food, pharmaceuticals, packaging, aircraft and communications. In these areas, Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technicians design and build, manufacture, offer application support, test components, integrate systems, maintain and sell robots that are used in assembly lines.
Here is a snapshot of this Automation robotics engineering technician offering:
- The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technician - Automation and Robotics program has met the national technology accreditation requirements established by the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists (CCTT) and, as such, has received national accreditation status by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB).
- The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) recognizes the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technician - Automation and Robotics program as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Technician category.
- The application process requires you to have completed at the very least an Ontario Secondary School Diploma or equivalent or br19 years of age or older. Additional requirements include: completion of the compulsory English 12C or U or skills assessment or equivalent and Math 11M or U, or 12C or U or skills assessment or equivalent.
- Students can graduate from Electro Mechanical Engineering Technician in two years or continue for additional study and co-op work experience in Centennial's three-year Automation and Robotics Technology program.
- The two-year program offers a networking opportunity through its strong on-campus Automation and Robotics Student Society, which organizes events such as career nights and industrial visits.
- Electro Mechanical Engineering focuses on automated systems, which are at the heart of virtually all advanced manufacturing industries.
- Practical hands-on laboratory experience is a key component of this Electro Mechanical Engineering program. Students learn in labs specifically designed to suit the curriculum.
- Basic technology used in building and operating automated industrial systems is covered, including Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), hydraulics, pneumatics, electronics and robotics.
- Students gain hands-on experience with all of the systems that are covered in the Electro Mechanical Engineering Technician program.
- Among specific Electro Mechanical Engineering courses are: Electric Circuits, Computer Aided Drafting, Hydraulic Systems, Electronic Devices, Machine Shop, Pneumatic Circuits, Digital Electronics and more.
- In addition to Electro Mechanical Engineering classes, students partake in other courses that are essential to their long-term success, including: Ethics in Technology and Environment, Technology Mathematics, Physics, Report Writing in a Technical Environment and more.
