My name is David DaCosta. I’m a second-year
student at Humber’s Electromechanical Engineering Technology program. It’s all about learning about the technologies and the skills
that you need to make an automated system. This program is geared towards someone who really enjoys using
their hands and using all the technology that’s available. What’s really fun about it is that the students
get to work on real-life applications, real-life devices they’re going to see in the real world. The faculty here is great. Our program coordinator, he’s a great guy.
He’s there, he helps us out. All our teachers, they’re always there if you have questions they’re willing to help you. Some students actually built a hydrogen generator where they were
converting tap water into hydrogen. One of the most impressive things about that was all the safety
protocols that they built in since hydrogen is an explosive substance. We do have some very cool equipment in our labs
for actually getting prepared for the industry later. We have six industrial robots. Through our program we do have
a co-op so you’re able to get some work experience and some connections through your co-op One thing that distinguishes Humber from some of the other colleges
in the region is that the School of Applied Technology has recently been granted a CTAB Accreditation. What
this essentially means is for graduates from our program is it makes the process much easier
for them to gain a CET designation. Use your resources while you’re at school. The best
advantange of being in college or university is the people you’re able to connect with. the people you’re able to connect with. It’s a lot of work to get through it but it pays off
in the end so just make sure that you choose right.
