Our two-year diploma program provides comprehensive instruction in mechanical engineering design, research and development.

Build a broad foundation in mechanical engineering

Gain the fundamental knowledge needed to work in the field of mechanical engineering! In addition to basic math and science, you’ll study advanced subjects such as calculus, machine kinematics, fluid power, process controls and industrial practices. Learn about the latest equipment and technologies, including programmable logic controllers, materials testing and additive manufacturing.

Job-specific skills

Sheridan's mechanical engineering diploma classes are designed to give you a taste of the real world. Develop job-specific skills working in our laboratory environment, under close supervision from professors with extensive industrial experience. You'll also have the chance to work with our industry partners on various applied research projects.

Keep your options open

Each of our mechanical engineering programs share a common first year, allowing you to easily transfer into design and drafting or electromechanical specializations. After your second year, you can either enter the workforce or go into the third year of Sheridan's Mechanical Engineering Technology advanced diploma, which offers a pathway into our Mechanical Engineering four-year degree.

Explore your future campus

As a student in our Mechanical Engineering Technician program, you’ll work in labs designed to imitate the workplace. Want a look inside? Take a virtual tour of our Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design.
