What will I learn?

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Engineering Physics Diploma in Mechatronics is designed to teach you how to connect mechanical, electrical, electronic, and software systems to create smart technologies and drive innovation.

The program is self-contained, enabling you to enter the workplace immediately, but gives you a background in math and science that is adaptable for completion of a full BSc degree in Physics at UFV, or an Engineering degree from another institution. You learn topics such as mechanics, circuit analysis, sensors and actuators, and optics, and acquire a strong theoretical grounding in physics.

CAREER EXPECTATIONS

As an emerging field, mechatronics has been accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. It is a discipline in full expansion. As our world relies increasingly on electromechanical systems to power new technology, the need for trained mechatronics engineers and technologists will continue to grow.

Because mechatronics graduates receive interdisciplinary training, they can work in a wide variety of fields, including automotive engineering, aerospace industry, space science, manufacturing, telecommunications, oil and gas, mining, power generation and distribution, robotics and artificial intelligence, biomedical technology, information technology, and software development.
