Computer Engineering Technology ties together Automation and Robotics with networking and data handling. Graduates will be well placed to work in modern automated factories including those implementing IoT and Industry 4.0. Industrial applications include PLC programming, Human Machine Interfacing, pneumatic and hydraulic interfacing and control and Electrical Drive implementations. In addition, students gain an understanding of the basics of electrical and electronic systems, microcontrollers and embedded systems on their way to the development of web interfaces and network enabled applications.

The program is a three-year program that can be studied with or without coop. Students can fast-track their studies by opting out of coop and graduating in three years. An early exit option permits students to graduate with a technician diploma after the first four semesters. The technician program does not have the coop option.
