Mechanical Engineering Technician

A mechanical engineer’s expertise is essential in almost every industry. They can be found working all over the world – innovating, solving problems, and providing insights into all types of machinery, like how how long a certain machine will work, what limitations the machine has, and so much more.

As a mechanical engineering technician your computer will be your go-to tool, using programs like AutoCad and SoildWorks to create and analyze your designs, run simulations, and test how a machine will operate. In our program, you’ll take your 3D designs one step further by producing them in our on-campus machining lab.

You will also have unique opportunities to put your skills into practice by working on real community and applied research projects in labs that are equipped with state-of-the-art, advanced manufacturing equipment. Manufacturing techniques like 3D printing and CNC machining are processes you’ll explore throughout the program.

Extend your studies after graduation by applying to enter directly into the final year of Cambrian’s Mechanical Engineering Technology (METY) program. You’ll boost your leadership and technical skills and open the door to more career opportunities.
