Robotics Engineering

Program Description

This program prepares students interested in pursuing careers in robotics or engineering by providing the pre-engineering and robotics skills necessary for entry into post-secondary education programs. Students are challenged to think critically, solve problems and apply technology-based tools effectively and safely. They also learn the skills necessary to communicate clearly, cooperate within teams, solve mathematical, scientific and logistical problems and present findings.

Robotics Engineering introduces students to embedded technology concepts through a combination of classroom lecture and project-based learning. Students learn to design, build, communicate and operate robotic automation equipment.
