Program Highlights

  • Choose your stream
  • 12-months of required co-op allows students to hit the ground running in their career after graduation. Students can complete co-op anywhere in the world!
  • With 25 per cent of the curriculum devoted to management courses, graduates lead by example on a technical level, while also leading strategy and building business in corporate boardrooms. Management courses help you gain the knowledge and skills necessary to become effective project leaders, supervisors and managers within changing professional environments.
  • Average class sizes of 40-60 students means more interaction with your professors and a close-knit student community.

What you'll learn

  • Automation Engineering Technology
    • The Automation Engineering Technology program prepares students to build complex electronic systems that create solutions to everyday problems. By teaching skills from the fields of chemical, mechanical, electrical and computer engineering, graduates can easily transition between industries. From robotics to food processing — wherever you might find an automatic system that uses sensors, instruments, actuators, and networks — you will find a role suitable for a skilled automation specialist. Choose the Smart Systems stream option for new courses in Smart Engineering Technology.
  • Automotive & Vehicle Engineering Technology
    • The Automotive and Vehicle Engineering Technology program teaches students to make vehicles safer, faster, cleaner and more sustainable. Students are taught with a systems perspective blending various engineering disciplines such as: mechanical, electrical, computer science, mechatronics and materials. Students develop hands-on skills on 3D CAD modeling, robot programming, controller tuning, electric/hybrid vehicle design, vibration control, troubleshooting and manufacturing.
  • Biotechnology
    • Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary field merging basic science, applied science and engineering. Study genetic engineering; cell biology, molecular biology and microbiology; analytical instrumentation; and bioprocessing. Students learn about the latest research in immunology, virology, genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics. With the combination of theoretical foundation and lab experience, you will be prepared for success in areas in genetic engineering and bioprocessing.
