Students in the Electromechanical Engineering Technologist program will learn valuable skills to work as designers and programmers in the automation and robotics fields. Upon graduation, students will have industry-read skills in industrial robot programming, PLC programming, machine vision, electrical design, welding, simulation, fluid power, mechanical design and project management.
- ABB robot/machine vision lab with twelve new robots with integrated vision cameras
- ABB/Fanuc material handling lab with six ABB and six new Fanuc robots
- New Fanuc welding robots lab with twelve Fanuc robots and Lincoln welders
- Upgraded PLC lab for teaching both Rockwell and Siemens
- Students graduate with a diverse skill set that prepares them for in-demand, high-paying careers in our local area
- Two-term Capstone projects where students will design, build and program a working robotic manufacturing cell
- Co-op work opportunities are available to gain valuable, paid work experience while in the program
These skills are in high demand in our local economy and around the world. Graduates will find employment with system integrators, machine builders, automotive manufacturers, or other manufacturing environments.

The curriculum below is for incoming students:
Please be aware that although a COVID-19 vaccination is not required to attend St. Clair College, some of our placement sites may require students to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 to be eligible to attend. Unfortunately, we cannot predict if a placement site will begin to require full vaccination and as such, we are encouraging all students to consider vaccination. If the requirement of your placement sites changes at any point, you will be notified immediately by the College.
It is important to note that if placement sites do require students to be fully vaccinated to attend their place of business, students who are not fully vaccinated cannot be provided with a placement for their program and therefore will not be able to complete their programs.
If you have any questions about the COVID-19 vaccines, please contact our St. Clair College Health Centre at 519-972-2727 ext. 4484 (in Windsor) or 519-354-9100 ext. 3729 (in Chatham).
