Field of Study:Mechanical Engineering/Mechanical Technology/Technician
Description:This three-year Ontario College Advanced Diploma program prepares students to apply scientific and engineering principles to solve mechanical engineering problems. Graduates become familiar with well-known design standards, such as ASHRAE and ASM International. Using industry-standard design software, such as SolidWorks, AutoCAD and MasterCAM, students become technologically savvy and highly employable on completion of the program. Third-year students have an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and problem-solving skills in a simulated industrial setting by completing a design project under the guidance of faculty.

Graduates are able: to create, modify and improve engineering designs using conventional and computer-based methods; perform engineering tests that support product development; use computer-aided engineering (CAE) software/systems to conduct engineering design and analysis; design and troubleshoot automated control systems; design specialized jigs and fixtures; and analyze problems involving machine design, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics and heat transfer. Graduates may find employment in the research, design and testing of mechanical systems, manufacturing processes, electro-mechanical control systems, automation and green-energy and building systems.
