Program Description Through the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technician - Automation and Robotics program, you gain the knowledge to build a rewarding career in the field of automation and robotics. This college diploma program focuses on automated systems, which are at the heart of virtually all advanced manufacturing and other industry sectors. The courses in this engineering program are comprehensive and emphasize the basic technology used in building and operating automated industrial systems: Programmable logic controllers (PLCs), hydraulics, pneumatics, electronics and robotics. The program includes a thorough understanding of theory, along with practical, hands-on laboratory experience. Transfer and Requirements: This applied science program allows you to either graduate as a technician after two years, or continue for additional study and co-op work experience in Centennial's three-year Automation and Robotics Technology program. If you wish to transfer to the Technology option and obtain an advanced diploma, you must complete MATH-231 (Differential Calculus with Analytic Geometry) and MATH-232 (Integral Calculus) prior to semester five.
