Become job-ready in just two years

Develop a mechanical engineering design skillset that's in high demand. In your first year, you’ll build a strong foundation of fundamental engineering knowledge. In your second year, you’ll study various concepts of advanced design and manufacturing, such as: CAD/CAM, mould design, plant design, finite element analysis, jig and fixture design and additive manufacturing.

Hands-on learning and problem solving

Work on project-based assignments in labs that simulate the real world, supervised by expert professors who have decades of industrial experience! Our Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies features the latest equipment, software and applications. Enjoy opportunities to work with our industry partners, join engineering design clubs and participate in design competitions.

Work toward your advanced diploma or other certifications

When you graduate, you can either enter the workforce or go directly into the third year of Sheridan’s Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design advanced diploma program. You’ll also have completed all the academic requirements for professional certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).
