Algonquin College

Bachelor of Engineering (Automation and Robotics)(Co-op)

Bachelor Degree

Blend the three fields of engineering to succeed in the high-demand field of automation and robotics.
The four-year Bachelor of Engineering (Automation and Robotics) degree program 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.
As a student in this program, you acquire knowledge and skills specific to electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and computer science, including:

engineering principles, professionalism and methodologies
mathematics, technical writing, computer programming, physics
dynamics, electronics, optical systems, machine design, control systems, electromechanical actuators, sensors, vision systems and the software necessary to design and simulate autonomous and remotely operated systems and components
project planning and management, and research and leadership
This co-operative education program provides you with learning opportunities through industrial and/or applied research placements. A comprehensive final year project tied to the needs of industry exists to challenge you, presenting the opportunity to test and further develop knowledge and skills.
Graduates of recognized Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technician Diploma, Electrical Engineering Technology Advanced Diploma, Mechanical Engineering Technology Advanced Diploma and Electrical Engineering Technician Diploma programs are eligible to apply to customized pathway programs reducing program duration.
