Mechanical Engineering is the study of the principles of physics for the purpose of harnessing energy for human consumption. This program provides students with the knowledge to conduct the analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. Students will develop a solid understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and energy and their applications to automotive processes. Mechanical Engineering Technologists use the core principles as well as specialized knowledge in the field to design and analyze motor vehicles, aircraft, heating and cooling systems, watercraft, manufacturing plants, industrial machinery and automation.
COOPERATIVE EDUCATION *NEW*
- State of the art training facility in the on-site Ford Centre for Excellence in Manufacturing.
- Credit Transfer Agreement with the University of Windsor Faculty of Engineering.
- Opportunity to attend SAE World Congress in 2nd and 3rd years.
- Students in this program fair exceptionally well at Provincial and National Skills Competitions in Mechanical CAD.
Cooperative education (co-op) provides students with an opportunity to apply their academic knowledge in the workplace, gain real-world experience and build their professional network by integrating co-op work terms between academic semesters. Students in the co-op option will have the opportunity to complete two co-op work terms.
Students in the Mechanical Engineering Technology – Automotive Product Design program will have the opportunity to apply for the co-op option during the first semester of the program. Spaces for the co-op option are limited and securing a paid co-op position is highly competitive. Students accepted into the co-op option will be required to attend co-op workshops, meet with their co-op coordinator, and actively search and compete for a co-op position. Additional fees apply to cover these services. Payment of these fees does not guarantee a co-op position.
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.
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.

2019-2020 Tuition Fees
For programs with Experiential Learning (Work Placement/Internship): Costs for accommodation, if needed, travel and related expenses is at the student's own expense. It is recommended for most programs, that students have access to a laptop or desktop computer while away from home during experiential learning periods.
Textbooks and other materials are in addition to Tuition Fees. Textbook prices may be found through the Bookstore website.
Please be aware that tuition and compulsory fees are subject to adjustment each year. The College reserves the right to change, amend or alter fees as necessary without notice or prejudice.
