Mechatronics offered at Assiniboine

A new program at Assiniboine College, Mechatronics Engineering Technology (Controls and Automation), is now accepting applications for the September 2025 intake. The program combines mechanical and electronics engineering technologies, with controls and automation, and will give graduates the hands-on expertise to pull together knowledge from these disciplines to develop automated machines to service the agricultural, food processing and manufacturing sector.

“This program is responding to an industry need for professionals skilled in mechatronics,” said Kevin Rogers, Academic Chair of Manufacturing and Agricultural Processing in the Edwards School. “This program will train students interested in careers in automation, robotics, precision agriculture and ag-tech development, and give them the hands-on learning experiences we are so proud to offer.”

The three-year diploma program is an integral new part of the Russ Edwards School of Agriculture & Environment.

“We are looking forward to welcoming our first class for this highly anticipated program, ultimately training graduates who can design, implement and maintain mechatronics systems,” said Rogers.

With an increase in the use of technology across all industries, the career options available to graduates are immense. Graduates will be able to seek careers as technicians/technologists in automation, control system repair and design, electronics and mechanical systems repair and design, robotics, manufacturing, product development, and instrumentation.
