Program description

Mechanical technology is a cornerstone of sophisticated and advanced economies. Students in this program are learning the skills to apply scientific and engineering principles to solve mechanical engineering related problems. They are also undertaking the design and fabrication of mechanical apparatus and systems. These include automation and control systems, manufacturing processes and material handling.

Career opportunities

Graduates may find a range of occupations in many industrial sectors including automotive, aerospace, advanced automation, natural resources and processing. They may participate in an engineer-technologist-technician team in mechanical consulting, manufacturing or mechanical design and maintenance. Careers are possible in machine and fixture building, manufacturing and production, quality assurance, testing, manufacturing management, technical sales and service. Specific industries may include automotive parts and assembly, metal fabricating and machining, and machine building.
