A project-based approach to learning is used in the courses of this college engineering diploma program. In small groups, you work on specific projects, learning how to plan, schedule, create, design and build as a part of a team. You also learn advanced computer-assisted drafting and computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) skills.

This college engineering program offers variety to those who can combine strong conceptual thinking with a practical knowledge of machines and how they work.

You may either graduate as a technician after one year, or continue with additional study and co-op work experience in Centennial College’s Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design program. The additional study takes an extra year to complete.

Program Highlights

  • The Mechanical Engineering program makes use of a state-of-the-art lab, which features thermodynamic fluid power testing modules, and tensile, hardness and impact testers.
  • Through a project-based approach that has an approximate 60-40 balance between theory and practice, you gain experience in machine shop operation, tool design and computer numerical control programming.
  • Instruction is included in industry-current software in Inventor, Solidworks, and Mastercam, as well as modern CAD/CAM equipment.
