Blend the three fields of engineering to succeed in the high-demand field of automation and robotics.

This four-year Bachelor of Engineering (Automation and Robotics) degree program is designed specifically for graduates of the Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) advanced diploma program. MET graduates receive credit for up to 20 courses allowing for completion of the degree within 2 years and 4 months. This degree prepares you for a career in the field of automation and robotics. Autonomous and remotely operated systems are deployed the world over with ever increasing frequency. Such systems are being implemented in many instances to reduce risk to human workers, to achieve higher efficiencies in manufacturing and to improve the quality of lives through robot-assisted rehabilitation and care. Variations of these systems are often in place for reasons of feasibility, efficiency, safety or practicality. Traditionally, in order to develop such systems, collaborative expertise and knowledge in aspects of mechanical and electrical engineering as well as computer science is necessary. Through a combination of these three fields of engineering, this program helps you acquire the theoretical and applied expertise to succeed in the high-demand field of automation and robotics.


Additional Admission Requirements:
    Applicant must be a graduate of Mechanical Engineering Technology Ontario College Advanced Diploma, with an overall GPA of 2.7 (70%) and 420 hours of co-op or related work experience.
