This three-year diploma program teaches you how to function effectively in Canada’s aerospace industry, taking it a step further than the two-year technician program. Work with advanced design programs such as CATIA. Learn about composites and how these materials make the world of difference in flight. Get hands-on experience in machining, CNC and other building fundamentals. In your third year, you’ll also learn machine design, advanced tool design, operations research and management and advanced manufacturing. This program gives you the tools you need to get a job and climb the ranks quickly in aviation manufacturing and engineering.
