Program OverviewPrinter Friendly
Led young College's Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design (Fast Track) program allows qualified college or university graduates direct admission into year two (semester three) of this three-year advanced diploma engineering program and sees them receive this technology advanced diploma in two years (four semesters).
The Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design (Fast-Track) courses in this college engineering program combine engineering theory and practice that emphasize the design and development of various mechanical devices and equipment.
Through a hands-on approach, you obtain thorough grounding in engineering sciences and skills, including advanced computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) as used in the industry. About one quarter of program time is spent on project work that simulates workplace assignments while relating classroom theory to the actual design and manufacture process. In addition, one course introduces you to finite element analysis using ANSYS software.
You may graduate after two years or continue your studies with a workplace experience through the co-op version of the Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design program (program #3745). With this option, academically-qualified students can enhance their education by working two terms as paid employees in the field. The experience not only allows them to put classroom learning into practice, but also provides valuable contacts for future careers.
