|Field of Study:||Mechanical Engineering/Mechanical Technology/Technician
|Description:||The Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) program is a practical, hands-on, two-year diploma program that lets you develop strong technical, analytical, and problem solving skills essential for a range of exciting careers in the challenging field of mechanical engineering. During the common first year, you will be exposed to a variety of topics including foundational math and physics, Computer Aided Design (CAD), and additional specialized courses to prepare you to enter into one of three specialized majors. Upon successful completion of the common first year, selection of your major will occur. Although SAIT Polytechnic will attempt to help students complete the program major of their choice, grade point average after the first year will be used in the selection criteria for each major.
Specialized skills gained in the Design and Development Major: product design and development, prototyping, ergonomics and industrial design.
