Sault College and Humber College have partnered to bring you an innovative opportunity by co-delivering the Bachelor of Engineering – Mechatronics Engineering program. This collaboration lets you stay close to home while studying and pursuing a degree in an emerging field.

Get hands-on experience with industry-standard advanced technology and choose from focused study in either robotics or embedded systems. Throughout this four-year degree program, you’ll solve real industry and community problems and gain knowledge and skills in mechanical, electrical, electronics, and computer engineering.

Use cutting-edge technologies in robotics, control, electronics, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), motors, mechanical components, digital and analog circuits, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), machine learning, modeling, simulation, embedded systems, and advanced manufacturing. These technologies won’t just give you theory, but will get you diving into hands-on training where you’ll learn  to tackle real-world problems with a systems-thinking approach.
You’ll also get a chance to work on industry-led projects through capstone projects and applied research projects. Apply your knowledge to solve real-industry problems, while enhancing your professional skills including teamwork, communication, collaboration, and problem solving.

After the third year of study, you will spend the following summer, fall and winter term in a mandatory paid co-op work placement to apply your skills and gain valuable knowledge within the industry.

This program is delivered following a hybrid model which includes a mix of remote delivery from Humber campus and on-campus instruction at Sault College. Practical learning takes place exclusively on campus, within our cutting-edge technology labs.

Ready to rock the emerging world of mechatronics? Let’s do it.

Scholarship Opportunities

Offered in partnership with Humber College, Sault College’s Bachelor of Engineering – Mechatronics Engineering program offers amazing entrance scholarship opportunities of up to $4,000. Based on the scholarship criteria, all students applying from high school who receive an offer into the program are entitled to a scholarship.

Supporting a variety of learners, while scholarships are available for students graduating high school or who have graduated from high school within the last year, scholarships are also available to students who have completed a two-year or three-year diploma from a publicly-funded college.

These scholarships are available to both domestic and international students who are registered full-time. Scholarships will be applied automatically based on the below criteria.


Available Scholarships

1. Entrance scholarships for graduating or recently graduated high school students.

Scholarships for these students are based on the Admission GPA:

Average Requirement    Amount ($)
  • 90%+ - $4,000 renewable*
  • 85–89.9% - $3,500 renewable*
  • 80–84.9% - $3,000 renewable*
  • 75–79.9% - $2,000 renewable*
  • 65–74.9% - $1,500 one time

*Scholarships are applied at the entrance level if a student maintains the minimum renewable GPA threshold of 3.5+ while studying in the program.

2. Entrance awards for students who have completed a two or three-year diploma from a publicly-funded college with a GPA of 3.5 or 75%+.

These students will be awarded a one-time scholarship of $2,500 in recognition of their academic achievement at the diploma level.


Entrance Eligibility

  • Students eligible for scholarship must be newly admitted to Sault College and entering their first year of postsecondary studies directly from high school (up to one-year post high school).
  • The grades used at the time of admission determine Admission GPA, calculated to one decimal place.
  • Admission GPA is not recalculated if courses are upgraded, or if admission is determined using pre-requisite course grades or midterm grades.
  • Students must be registered full-time at Sault College, unless otherwise determined by Accessibility Services.
  • Students requiring preparatory courses in their first year or subsequent years of study are not eligible for the scholarship.


Renewable Eligibility

  • Students must maintain a 3.5% GPA or above, to qualify for annual scholarship renewal at the Admission GPA level.
  • Renewability assessment takes place at the end of each academic year and is based on the fall and winter semester GPA calculation.
  • Students must maintain full-time registration each term, unless otherwise determined by Accessibility Services. Students in their graduating year who do not require a full time course load for graduation are eligible to receive a pro-rated scholarship.
  • Students are eligible for the renewable scholarship up to and including their fourth year of studies.
  • A gap in study will disqualify a student from scholarship renewal.
  • Students who have not met the renewability terms and are requesting exception must write to the Exceptional Circumstance Committee, via   registrar@saultcollege.ca. The application must be endorsed by the program Coordinator. 


Scholarship Administration

The scholarship will be administered in two equal distributions in the fall and winter semesters, applied directly to the student’s tuition fee balance at the time of registration.
