Introduction

Learn engineering design - offer solutions as a mechanical engineering technologist

The three-year Mechanical Engineering Technology Ontario College Advanced Diploma program teaches you to apply scientific and engineering principles to solve mechanical engineering problems in a variety of industries.

Through a series of classroom-based courses and extensive practical labs, you acquire skills specific to mechanical engineering technologists, including:

  • Modifying and improving engineering designs using conventional and computer-based methods
  • Performing engineering tests
  • Supporting product development
  • Using engineering software and systems to conduct engineering design and analysis
  • Designing specialized jogs and fixtures
  • Analyzing problems involving machine design, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, and heat transfer
  • Understanding and applying design standards i.e., ASHRAE and ASM International
  • Using design software such as SolidWorks, AutoCAD, and Mastercam

During your third year in the program, you complete a capstone design project under the guidance of your faculty members. You work with external stakeholders in the industry during the project to analyze, plan, and execute your project.

Students also have the option to gain real-world experience through a paid co-operative education (co-op) work term (see Additional Information for more details). Please note that places in the co-op work term are subject to availability and academic eligibility. Please note admission to the co-op program does not guarantee a co-op placement.
