Program OverviewPrinter Friendly
Led young College's Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology – Automation and Robotics (Fast-Track) program is for qualified college or university graduates of engineering and science programs. These applicants gain direct admission into year two (semester three) of this three-year engineering program and receive their advanced diploma in two years (four semesters).
This applied science program's courses provide a thorough understanding of theory, along with practical hands-on laboratory experience. Special attention is given to embedded systems using microcontrollers, quality control using vision inspection and SPC, and continuous feedback control using PID. You also learn integration of automated equipment through its design, fabrication and installation.
The co-op option in this program will provide you with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience while you complete three work terms as a paid employee in the field. This experience not only allows you to put classroom learning into practice, but will also provide valuable contacts for your future career.
To participate in programs with optional co-op, students will typically complete an application process in the second semester of their studies, and if academically qualified, will be admitted to the co-op program. When you graduate, your diploma will highlight the co-op credential.
