Third-year students in SLC’s Instrumentation and Control Engineering Technology program are hard at work on their final projects which include an automated fish detector for ice fishing, magic card sorter, an articulated robotic arm, and augmented reality trauma simulation that will be used by medical students at Queen’s University.
"I am so proud of what our students are able to accomplish every year. Their creativity and tenacity to help our communities grow is admirable. Throughout alternate delivery, our students are careful to follow safety guidelines, use PPE, and keep each other safe. They look after each other. I want to thank the College for providing our students with a safe way to complete their hands-on learning. Hands-on learning is everything and this is how they connect theory with application," said Julie Cruickshank, Program Coordinator, Instrumentation and Control Engineering Technology.
Control systems are the brains behind the devices that produce everyday goods, and they keep our environment and utilities running smoothly across a wide variety of sectors. Through their final projects, students develop systems that reflect a typical manufacturing process or a system that is used in industry and/or health care settings.
