DC adds FANUC certification to Electromechanical Engineering Technology program

Durham College (DC) students in the Electromechanical Engineering Technology (EMTY) program will now receive the internationally recognized FANUC Robotics Handling Tool Operations and Programming Level 1 certification in addition to their advanced diploma upon completion of the program.

As a global leader in robotic automation for manufacturing and supply, FANUC’s systems are installed more than any other brand in the world. This certification will give DC graduates a substantial competitive advantage as they enter the workforce, and will signal to employers that they are ready to hit the ground running with knowledge and familiarity of the equipment and software already installed in their workplace.

The certification earned by graduates is part of FANUC’s industry-leading Certified Educational Robot Training (CERT) program and will be facilitated by DC professors and FANUC-certified CERT instructors Beau James and Brent Brooks.

Students enrolled in the EMTY program as of September 2018 onward will be eligible to receive the certification at the end of their program.
