|In this diploma program, students gain skills for a career in today's automated manufacturing setting. In addition to developing a thorough knowledge of numerically controlled manufacturing systems, students will acquire a comprehensive background in general manufacturing and design fundamentals. This broad-based curriculum includes: learning and applying numerical control (NC) programming concepts; utilizing CAD/CAM techniques to integrate design and manufacturing; an introduction to the world of robotics; an introduction to designing power-transmitting devices and developing and applying quality assurance process planning and production control techniques to the solution of practical manufacturing problems. Today's effective technician is also a skilled communicator, and students will learn to communicate technical information at all levels through the use of linguistic, graphic and computerized methods. There is a common first two years with the Mechanical Engineering Technology (Automated Manufacturing) program.
The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) conditionally recognizes this program as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Certified Technician (C.Tech.) category.
