Mechanical Engineering Technology

Learn job-specific skills and gain real-world experience.

For the Winter 2021 semester, this program will be delivered through a hybrid model that combines remote and in-person learning. View delivery modes for all programs.

Sheridan’s three-year advanced diploma prepares you for mechanical engineering work and provides pathways to higher education.

Specialize your mechanical engineering knowledge

After building a strong foundation of mechanical engineering knowledge in your first two years, you’ll be exposed to more specialized subjects in your final two semesters. An understanding of niche concepts such as mechanical design, machine kinematics and dynamics, programmable controllers, fluid mechanics and energy systems may lead to better career opportunities when you graduate.

Gain real-world experience and build connections

Sheridan's labs simulate the workplace, but there's no substitute for real-world experience. Put your new mechanical engineering skills to work for our industry partners in two paid co-op terms: one after your third semester and another in your third year of studies. You'll also work with peers on capstone research and applied research projects that help our partners resolve real-world issues.

Earn credits towards your degree and other certification

Want to take your education to the next level? As a graduate of this program, you may be able to transfer into the third year of Sheridan's Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree (some bridge courses will be required). You'll also have completed all the academic requirements for personal certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).

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.
