What if? These two simple, but powerful words have inspired every piece of modern technology in our lives. You are the inquisitive mind who turns inspiration into creation and puts the ‘what ifs’ into action.

The three-year Mechanical Engineering Technology advanced diploma program will give you hands-on experience and the underlying foundational knowledge needed to conceive, design, manufacture, and operate engineering systems.

You`ll build on the solid technical foundation you developed in the Mechanical Engineering Technician program. The manufacturing and basic design skills you developed in your first two years will be enhanced in the third year by focusing on detailed design and advanced manufacturing technologies.

Be ready to learn how to apply your communication, documentation, and technology know-how to support the goals of the organization who will be lucky to have you on their team.

Through in-class instruction and a world-class lab simulating the manufacturing environment, you`ll gain critical skills needed to become a key member of today’s engineering teams, including:

  • Quality control procedures
  • In-depth performance testing
  • Product development support
  • Design and manufacturing
  • Improving engineering designs through analysis

Direct entry to this program requires completion of a two-year Mechanical Technician program. The third year of this advanced diploma program is offered through the Northern Colleges Collaboration Program (NCCP) using web-based applications and on-campus labs.

You`ve chosen a career in mechanical engineering technology because you’re a problem solver. You skills will have you making things better, faster, and easier.
