Course Information

In just two years, you can learn the industry-specific skills necessary to launch an electromechanical engineering career.

Specialize in automation and robotics

Bring the worlds of electrical engineering and mechanical engineering together. After studying general mechanical engineering concepts in your first year, you'll focus on programmable logic controllers and robotics in your final two semesters. When you graduate, you'll be qualified to help design, install, maintain, operate, supervise and service complex electromechanical systems.

Get hands-on experience

Sheridan's approach to engineering education blends theoretical studies with hands-on learning opportunities. You'll work directly with automated systems and cutting-edge mechatronic applications in our laboratories. You'll also have the chance to work with your professors on applied research projects that provide real-world solutions for our various industry partners.

Work towards your advanced diploma or other certifications

When you graduate, you can either enter the workforce or go directly into the final year of Sheridan's Electromechanical Engineering Technology advanced diploma program. You'll also have completed all the academic requirements for professional certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).

Explore your future classroom

As a student in Sheridan's Electromechanical Engineering Technician program, you'll work in labs designed to imitate the real-world workplace. Want a preview? Take a virtual tour of our Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design.
