1 To be chosen from a list of Electrical Engineering design elective courses provided by the School of Engineering.
2 To be chosen from a list of technical elective courses provided by the School of Engineering. Up to two third- or fourth-year courses offered outside the School of Engineering may qualify as technical electives with permission from the Electrical Program Coordinator.

Mechatronics Option

Available to Mechanical and Electrical students, the Mechatronics Option allows students interested in electromechanical systems integrated with embedded electronics, sensors, actuators, and related systems to have a course focus in these areas.

Application to the Mechatronics Option is open to students with Year 2 standing (including Year 2 transfer students) in the Bachelor of Applied Science program specializing in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering.

Applications for admission must be made through the Engineering Advising Office by May 31st. Admission will be competitive based on GPA and enrolment in this option is limited.

The Mechatronics Option under Electrical Engineering requires the following courses:

  • COSC 121 and COSC 222
  • Required 4th year courses (as listed above) and Elective requirements:
    • 12 credits of Design Electives & 12 credits of Technical Electives from a list Mechatronics Elective choices, including mandatory courses ENGR 480, ENGR 481.3

    Note that it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the electives chosen meet the program requirements for design and technical elective graduation requirements.

    The option consists of a typical third year, followed by a set of prescribed fourth year courses with 2 additional required Computer Science courses beyond the Bachelor of Applied Science degree.

    Students may encounter difficulty fitting these 2 Computer Science (COSC) courses into their schedule. Careful planning is essential and completion of the Option may require a summer session or additional term of study beyond that required to complete the Bachelor of Applied Sciences degree alone.

    Entry into and continuation in the Option requires that the student remains in Good Standing. Upon successful completion of the option, the notation “Mechatronics Option” will be added on the student’s transcript.

    3Electives to be chosen from a list of approved Mechatronics Option courses provided by the School of Engineering.
