Centennial College's Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design (Fast Track) program allows qualified college or university graduates direct admission into year two (semester three) of this three-year advanced diploma engineering program and sees them receive this technology advanced diploma in two years (four semesters).
The Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design (Fast-Track) courses in this college engineering program combine engineering theory and practice that emphasize the design and development of various mechanical devices and equipment.
Through a hands-on approach, you obtain thorough grounding in engineering sciences and skills, including advanced computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) as used in the industry. About one quarter of program time is spent on project work that simulates workplace assignments while relating classroom theory to the actual design and manufacture process. In addition, one course introduces you to finite element analysis using ANSYS software.
You may graduate after two years or continue your studies with a workplace experience through the co-op version of the Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design program (program #3745). With this option, academically-qualified students can enhance their education by working two terms as paid employees in the field. The experience not only allows them to put classroom learning into practice, but also provides valuable contacts for future careers.
The co-op option in this mechanical engineering program will provide you with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience while you complete three work terms as a paid employee in the field. This experience not only allows you to put classroom learning into practice, but will also provide valuable contacts for your future career.
To participate in programs with optional co-op, students will typically complete an application process in the second semester of their studies, and if academically qualified, will be admitted to the co-op program. When you graduate, your diploma will highlight the co-op credential.
Mechanical engineering labs include material properties, strength of materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and quality assurance testing equipment.
Qualified Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design program graduates may be eligible to participate in pathway programs with partnering institutions. These pathway programs allow you to receive degree credit for learning obtained at Centennial College. Our partners include:
Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT)
American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
American Society for Quality (ASQ)
The Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design (Fast Track) 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).
Note: Meeting the minimum co-op program requirements does not guarantee admission into the co-op program.
