Introduction

Study real-world solutions. Mechanical engineering is the cornerstone of sophisticated and technologically advanced economies. Process automation and control, precision machining, and design functions can be found in industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace, robotics, biotechnology, and energy. These mechanical functions open doors to a wide range of industrial automation and design-oriented careers. This program offers two streams (1) Residency Stream and (2) Online Stream. Students may transfer between the online and residency streams with academic advisement.

  1. Students in the residency stream complete laboratory work throughout their program. Students in the residency stream may choose to take the T174 pathway in their last summer semester. The T174 pathway enables students to graduate with two diplomas: T121 (Mechanical Engineering Technology – design) and T173 (Mechanical Engineering Technician – CNC and precision machining).
  2. Students in the online stream do not take any on-campus classes. However, students in the online stream who wish to have hands-on machining experience have the opportunity to complete the T149 Mechanical Techniques certificate summer program in place of one of the summer vacations in the program. Students in the online stream who have taken T149 are also eligible to take the T174 pathway in the following summer semester. The T174 pathway enables graduation with two diplomas: T121 (Mechanical Engineering Technology – design) and T173 (Mechanical Engineering Technician – CNC and precision machining).

Designing the future, today. A solid grounding in engineering sciences and practical hands-on experience in mechanical and computer-assisted design labs provides the combination of applied and theoretical knowledge that employers require in today’s integrated work environments.

In the third year of the program, teams plan, fabricate, and test their own designs that require the application of all of the knowledge accumulated throughout the program. Once built, projects such as medical devices, entertainment equipment, solar-powered products, and automotive accessories are often put on display and form an important part of the student assessment. More importantly, graduates learn to work in teams while solidifying their mechanical engineering knowledge and skills.

Note: If you enroll in the program in January, you must complete Semester 2 in the summer (May to August) of the same year.

Your Field Education Options

Field study in the form of industry-driven applied research projects is provided to students. Students work closely with their industry sponsors to design, fabricate and test a solution to a real-world problem.
