Program Overview

Centennial College's Mechanical Engineering Technician – Design (Fast-Track) program is geared towards qualified college or university graduates who will gain direct admission into Year 2 (Semester 3) of this two-year program and receive their Technician diploma in one year (two semesters).

A project-based approach to learning will be used in the courses of this college engineering diploma program. In small groups, you'll work on specific projects, learning how to plan, schedule, create, design and build as a part of a team. You'll also learn advanced computer-assisted drafting and computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) skills.

This college engineering program will offer variety to those who want to combine strong conceptual thinking with a practical knowledge of machines and how they work.

You may either graduate as a Technician after one year or continue with additional study and co-op work experience in Centennial College's Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design program. The additional study will take an extra year to complete.
