Led young College's Mechanical Engineering Technology – Industrial (Co-op Fast Track) program allows qualified mechanical engineering college or university graduates to gain direct admission into year two (semester three) of this college engineering program and receive their Technology advanced diploma in two years (four semesters plus two work terms).

The Mechanical Engineering Technology – Industrial (Co-op Fast Track) program combines courses in engineering theory and practice, focusing on the design and development of various mechanical devices and equipment. You obtain a thorough grounding in engineering sciences and skills, including intermediate to advanced computer-assisted design and manufacturing, as used in the industry.

About one quarter of this advanced diploma engineering program is spent on project work. Projects simulate workplace assignments, relating classroom theory to the actual design, manufacture and testing of mechanical systems.

This program offers a co-op component. The students enhance their education by working two terms as paid employees in the field. This experience brings classroom learning to life in the real world and provides valuable contacts for future careers.
