Program Description
The first two years of the Mechanical Engineering Technology program is identical to the Mechanical Engineering Technician Program offered at Northern College. Students who are interested in designing, planning and coordinating mechanical engineering projects continue their studies for an additional year. They will acquire a greater depth of training and knowledge in strength of materials, manufacturing methods, advanced fluid mechanics, thermodynamics & heat transfer, process control, and machine design. Students receive extensive hands-on instruction in a modern manufacturing lab with CNC mills, CNC lathes, CMM, 3D scanners, and a range of 3D printing technologies. They learn how to select, design, install, maintain, program and troubleshoot modern industrial mechanical components and systems.

Graduates from our Technician or Technology programs may obtain certification through the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).

Pathways to Success
Graduates of the Mechanical Engineering Technician Program may choose to continue their studies and complete an additional year in order to obtain a diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology. Graduates of this program may be eligible to enroll in the Mechanical Engineering degree program at Lakehead University.

Career Opportunities
Northern College graduates are currently employed by consulting engineering firms, manufacturing & processing companies, public institutions and government agencies. Mechanical engineering technologists work individually, assist engineers, or supervise other technologists or technicians in the design, construction, testing, installation, repair or marketing of equipment in a wide range of industries including mining, oil & gas, forestry, automotive, and construction.
