Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design

Specialize your skillset and earn a credential employers value.

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.

This three-year advanced diploma provides you with hands-on training and real-world experience in mechanical engineering design.

Get training for a specialized career

After building a strong foundation of mechanical engineering design knowledge in your first two years, you’ll study more specialized subjects in your final two semesters. An understanding of niche concepts such as mechanical design and simulation, kinematics, building facilities layout, HVAC, sustainable design and design analysis may lead to better career opportunities when you graduate.

Gain real-world experience and build connections

Sheridan’s labs simulate the workplace, but they can’t completely replicate it. Put your new mechanical engineering skills to work for our industry partners in two 12-month paid co-op terms: one after your third semester and another in your third year of studies. You’ll also collaborate with peers to help our partners resolve a real-world issue in your capstone research project.

Earn credits towards a degree or other certification

As a graduate of this program, you’ll have the opportunity to transfer into the third year of Sheridan’s Honours Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree (some bridge courses will be required.) You’ll also have completed all of the academic requirements of personal certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).
