||Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology
The Mechanical Engineering Technology Diploma Program provides learners with the knowledge, skills and abilities for employment as Mechanical Engineering (ME) technologists within a broad array of industries.
Learners graduate with a strong foundation in science as applied to engineering design, development, implementation and maintenance of components and systems, as well as the processes and operations related to manufacturing and other industries.
Learners engage in hands on, applied learning opportunities in the program’s machine shop and engineering laboratories, and on computer controlled manufacturing equipment that provides graduates with skills and abilities that exceed national accreditation standards.
The program culminates in a capstone project where students work in teams to create, design, model, fabricate, assemble, test and document a mechanical project that is showcased and publicly demonstrated. Past projects include: underwater vehicles, manufacturing equipment, renewable energy products, transportation devices, and medical assistance products.
Career/Academic Advancement Opportunities
Upon graduation, ME technologists may apply their skills to: product design, testing and evaluation, research and development, manufacturing and sales. Specialized fields of employment include: materials testing, automation and packaging, instrumentation design and the implementation of CAD/CAM equipment in engineering departments. Graduates are qualified to work as technologists domestically and internationally.
Graduates wishing to continue their studies toward a degree in mechanical engineering may apply for entrance to Camosun College’s Engineering Bridge Program or apply directly to other post- secondary institutions offering Engineering programs.
