PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Are you fascinated by the principles of how we take natural resources in order to harness their energy to make things run? Are you mechanically inclined or enjoy taking apart and building engines, turbines, and more? These concepts and their applications are part of Mechanical Engineering Technology - Automotive Product Design.

Mechanical Engineering is the study of the principals of physics for the purposes of harnessing energy for human consumption. This program provides you with the knowledge to conduct the analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems.

It requires a solid understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and energy. Mechanical engineering technologists use the core principles as well as other knowledge in the field to design and analyze motor vehicles, aircraft, heating and cooling systems, watercraft, manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS
  • State of the art training facility in the on-site Ford Centre for Excellence in Manufacturing
EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Graduates find excellent opportunities in product development, testing and analysis, computer aided design and drafting, material selection and estimating machine and system component design, technical sales and junior management positions in the energy, manufacturing, controls and alternative energy industries.

DEGREE COMPLETION
Graduates of this program with a minimum cumulative average of B, have opportunity for direct entry into the University of Windsor with credit transfer of up to 14 courses in the Bachelor of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering (Automotive Engineering Option) or into the Bachelor of Engineering Technology program. Other opportunities exist with Lakehead University, Lawrence Technological Institute, and more. Those students wishing to pursue a degree in Engineering would take Linear Algebra, Advanced Calculus and Calculus B in addition to the regular T826 curriculum. Additional course fees will apply. Please consult the Program Chair.
