December 19, 2018

A new mechatronics program at Cambrian College will train engineering technicians and technologists who can build, program, operate, and repair machines, reports CBC. Joanne MacLellan, Dean of the School of Engineering Technology, said that the college decided to introduce the program after hearing from industry professionals. "I don't think most people realize how automated everything is in terms of the industry. It is actually very high tech," MacLellan said. According to CBC, Northern Ontario provides mining parts and equipment to the rest of the world, making the supply sector one of the fastest growing in the province. CBC
