Certificate in
Robotics and Embedded Systems

Note: This certificate program may be completed entirely at a distance. Visit the distance education website for further information.

Sample Distance Course ModuleSample Module

This certificate program provides adult learners with hands-on opportunities to acquire knowledge and skills that will permit them to contribute and respond effectively to our collective societal need to provide innovation through advances in robotics and embedded systems product and device development. Topics covered will range from microprocessor-based control systems to systems-on-chip (SoC) design to device software development for the purposes of consumer and commercial product development in any number of fields. Participants will build as they learn, producing robotic and embedded systems throughout the duration of the program.

Admission Criteria

It is recommended that applicants have the following:

Mature student status and evidence of relevant college or university level coursework, or equivalent
OR
Mature student status together with relevant industrial or professional experience

Undergraduate students wishing to pursue a continuing education certificate program should be aware of possible restrictions; please refer to Curriculum Advising for complete details.

Program Open House

Students who have questions about the admission criteria and/or would like to know more about this certificate are invited to attend a Program Open House. Please see Open House for dates, times, and location.

Certificate Requirements

The successful completion of six courses, with a cumulative grade point average of 1.67 or higher, is required for the certificate.

Certificate Registration

Students may be registered in only one certificate program at any one time. To allow maximum flexibility in crediting external courses and/or courses previously taken at Ryerson, students should register in the certificate at the beginning of their first course (see also Courses and Programs FAQ). For complete details on the advantages of early registration, registration deadlines, and Transfer Credit restrictions, all students should read Registration in a Certificate Program.

Requirements for Graduation

To graduate, you must successfully complete the published certificate curricula from the year you registered in the certificate. Certificate requirements must be completed within six years from the time you were first admitted into the certificate program. In some circumstances, certificate requirements may change, resulting in courses no longer being available. In such cases, Course Substitutions/Directives may be requested. Also, you must apply on RAMSS to graduate, prior to the appropriate application deadlines (see Important Dates). For complete details, all students should read Graduation.
