Program OverviewPrinter Friendly
Centennial College's Mechanical Engineering Technology – Industrial (Fast-Track) program allows qualified mechanical engineering college or university graduates direct entry into year two (semester three) 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 offer both engineering theory and practice, while emphasizing the design and development of various mechanical devices and equipment. This results in a thorough grounding in engineering sciences and skills, including intermediate to advanced computer-assisted design and manufacturing as used in the industry.
You spend about one quarter of the program on project work that simulates workplace assignments. You are also required to relate classroom theory to the actual design, manufacture and testing of mechanical systems.
This colege engineering program offers an optional co-op component. It 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 you've earned.
