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.

Program Highlights

  • Through the Mechanical Engineering Technology – Industrial (Fast-Track) program’s project approach, you benefit from a theory and practice balance that’s approximately 60-40.
  • Hands-on practice includes experience in machine shop operation, tool design and computer numerical control programming as well as industry-current software instruction in SolidWorks, Simul8, and Mastercam.
  • State-of-the-art CAD/ CAM equipment is used in the courses.

The program’s cutting edge mechanical engineering lab is outfitted with material properties, strength of materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and quality assurance testing equipment.
