|Description:||Qualified mechanical engineering college or university graduates (or those with at least one successful year) gain direct admission into this three-year program and receive their technology diploma in four semesters. This program combines courses in engineering theory and practice, focusing on the design and development of various mechanical devices and equipment. You will obtain a thorough grounding in engineering sciences and skills, including intermediate to advanced computer-assisted design and manufacturing, as used in the industry.
In addition, a new course has been added to introduce the engineering technologist to Finite Element Analysis using ANSYS Software. About one-quarter of the program is spent on project work. Projects simulate workplace assignments, relating classroom theory to the actual design, manufacture and testing of mechanical systems. This program offers an optional professional technology year component. Academically-qualified students enhance their education by working three terms as paid employees in the field. This experience not only allows you to put classroom learning into practice, but also provides valuable contacts for future careers.
