¿Qué aprenderé?

This program will provide you with the ability and confidence to seek opportunities and provide support within the dynamic world of engineering, including in the automotive, energy generation, construction, and manufacturing sectors. Your future role may steer you towards a career in design, metal and non-metal fabrication including machining and 3D printing, or technical support. Our modern facilities excel in the delivery of Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM), Computer Numerical Control (CNC), Electrical, Fluid Power, Precision Machining, and Measurement.

The Mechanical Engineering Technology program provides a wide variety of career options. Laboratory practice emphasizes hands-on, project-based study that involves individual and teamwork.

You will be prepared to work independently and provide technical support and service as a valued member of an engineering team.

You will also learn how to:

  • Analyze engineering problems involving fluid-thermal sciences
  • Create, modify and improve engineering designs using conventional and computer-based methods
  • Perform engineering tests and failure analysis
  • Use computer-aided engineering software/systems to conduct engineering design and analysis

In the third year of the program, you will have the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and problem-solving skills in the Integrated Manufacturing Centre, a world-class on-campus training facility.

Graduates are eligible for membership with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists as graduate technologists.

Career Options

  • Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) specialist
  • Co-ordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) programme
  • Computer-Numerical-Control (CNC) machine programmer
  • Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) designer
  • Mechanical designer
  • Plastic injection mould designer
  • Power generation support specialist
  • Process planner or coordinator
  • Quality assurance/control specialist
  • Technical sales and support representative


  • Aerospace, automotive, or product manufacturing
  • Building renovation and construction
  • Chemical or food processing and/or packaging
  • Energy generation and distribution or oil and gas production
  • Telecommunication or transportation

Field Placement

Your learning experience will be complemented by a field placement in your final year, which will enable you to work within an engineering-related environment while continuing your studies.

Co-operative education (co-op)

The best way to succeed in your field is to immerse yourself in it! Co-op is an excellent way to build your professional network, explore career paths and apply in-class teachings to real work situations. Co-op is a model of education that integrates academic learning with workplace learning in fields relevant to our students’ academic and personal goals. Similar to an academic course, work terms are a mandatory component to this form of experiential learning.

Effective September 2021, students in the Mechanical Engineering Technology Advanced Diploma program will be invited to apply to the co-op option during their first academic semester. Entrance to the co-op option is limited and the processes for securing a work term are competitive. Students who qualify for co-op will be eligible to complete two four-month, paid work terms totalling 840 hours. Work terms are scheduled between semesters two and three and four and five of the program.
