Centennial College's Mechanical Engineering Technology – Industrial (Fast-Track) program allows qualified mechanical engineering college or university graduates direct entry into Year 2 (Semester 3) of this program so they may receive their Technology advanced diploma in two years (four semesters).
This advanced diploma program's Mechanical Engineering Technology – Industrial (Fast-Track) courses will offer both engineering theory and practice, while highlighting the design and development of various mechanical devices and equipment. This will result in a thorough grounding in engineering sciences and skills, including intermediate to advanced computer-assisted design and manufacturing as used in the industry.
You'll spend about one quarter of the program on project work that will simulate workplace assignments. You'll also be required to relate classroom theory to the actual design, manufacture and testing of mechanical systems.
Please note: Some courses may be offered in an online/hybrid format.
The program's cutting edge mechanical engineering lab is outfitted with material properties, strength of materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and quality assurance testing equipment.
Qualified Mechanical Engineering Technology – Industrial 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.
Listed below are the degrees from partnering institutions that are available for this program. Please note that each partnership has a specific minimum grade requirement in order to qualify for transferring credits, which are assessed by the partner institution.
