Overview

Advanced Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology - Robotics and Automation (Optional Co-op)

This diploma program features co‑operative education with six academic terms at the College and three work terms in the industry. 

Studies combine theoretical knowledge with applied skills in controlling robotic and automated equipment using electronics, programmable automation controllers, computers, hydraulics and pneumatics. 

In addition, the program focuses on developing skills in computer‑aided design, mechanical technology, electric motors, servo-mechanisms, robotics, industrial automation, and safety standards. 

Emphasis is placed on effective techniques for designing, modifying, installing, testing, maintaining, repairing and troubleshooting equipment and systems. Effective communication is also stressed. 

The Robotics and Automation program at Conestoga College culminates in a third-year capstone project in which all the skills learned at school and on work terms are integrated into the proposal, design and construction of a fully functioning manufacturing work cell. 

The optional co-op stream includes three co-op work terms. 

The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) conditionally recognizes this program as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) category.
