Qualified mechanical engineering college or university graduates (or those with at least one successful year) gain direct admission into this three-year program and receive their technology diploma in 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.
In addition, a new course has been added to introduce the engineering technologist to Finite Element Analysis using ANSYS Software. 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.
You will gain experience in machine shop operation, tool design, plus computer numerical control programming
Fast-track students will be placed in the appropriate English and math level based on skills assessment results
