The Aerospace Manufacturing Engineering Technology advanced diploma program at Centennial College will allow you to gain a solid understanding of aircraft manufacturing operations, aerospace systems, and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology. Through three years of training, you'll learn to work with key performance indicators, continuous improvement techniques, and composite materials while also mastering CAD, CAM, and CNC operations. This combination will help you to seamlessly transition into the industry.
Additionally, the Technology option will prepare you to effectively function in the field with math competencies, the ability to develop simulations, knowledge of finite element analysis, and the know-how to design, build and implement action plans. You'll also be taught business functions such as project planning and management, operations management, leading and participating in multidisciplinary teams, and problem-solving. On the technical side, training will be rounded out with specialized knowledge of the impact of manufacturing systems, process engineering, product life cycle management, and troubleshooting.
Please note: Some courses may be offered in an online/hybrid format.
