Qualified mechanical engineering college or university graduates (or those with at least one successful year) gain direct admission into year two (semester three) of this three-year program and receive their technology diploma in two years (four semesters).
This program combines courses in engineering theory and practice, focusing on the design and development of various mechanical devices and equipment. You will obtain a thorough grounding in engineering sciences and skills, including intermediate to advanced computer-assisted design and manufacturing, as used in the industry.
About one-quarter of the program is spent on project work. Projects simulate workplace assignments, relating classroom theory to the actual design, manufacture and testing of mechanical systems.
Graduates are prepared to work in manufacturing/mechanical related areas such as:
- Plan facility technologists
- Assistants to professional engineers
- CAD operators
- Mechanical testers
CTAB NATIONALLY ACCREDITED PROGRAM
The Mechanical Engineering Technology- Industrial program has met the national technology accreditation requirements established by the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists (CCTT) and, as such, has received national accreditation status by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB).
RECOGNITION AS A CERTIFIED ENGINEERING TECHNICIAN\TECHNOLOGIST
OACETT (The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists) recognizes the Mechanical Engineering Technology - Industrial program as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Technologist category.
The qualification requirements and costs for each external accreditation, designation, certification or recognition are set by the granting body, not by Centennial College. In order to qualify for any external accreditations, designations, certifications or recognitions, students and graduates will need to follow the processes and meet the applicable requirements listed on the websites and in the materials of those external bodies.
