To be eligible for admission, you must possess a high school diploma including these required courses (or equivalents):
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
For direct admission, if English is not your first language, OR you did not complete a minimum of two years of full-time study at the secondary school level in an English language school system in a country where English is considered the primary language or the primary language of instruction and evaluation is English, with acceptable grades in all English courses, you must provide one of the English language proficiency tests below:
Humber’s Mechanical Engineering Technology advanced diploma program provides you with hands-on experience and the underlying foundational knowledge required to conceive, design, manufacture and operate engineering systems. Working on projects in state-of-the-art laboratories and design spaces, you will work on finding solutions for design and manufacturing challenges in engineering systems.
The curriculum covers the theory and the skills required for:
- engineering design using leading industrial softwares (SolidWorks, AutoCAD)
- manufacturing engineering systems
- prototyping and proof of concept applications
- automation systems
- program computer numerical control (CNC) machine tools
- computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software-Mastercam
- operation design and sustainability
- project engineering and management
- testing and maintenance of engineering systems
- energy sustainability
This program builds upon the solid technical foundation of the Mechanical Engineering diploma program. The manufacturing and basic design skills acquired in the first two years are enhanced in the third year by focusing on detailed design and advanced manufacturing technologies. The Mechanical Engineering Technology program offers a co-op option.
This program offers a co-op option. Co-op work terms enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in a work environment and gain valuable, practical experience related to your program of study. You will learn new skills, learn about the world of work and meet people in your profession.
For students who are accepted into the optional co-op program, three co-op work terms will take place. The first four-month work term is between Semesters 2 and 3, and then two consecutive four-month work terms between Semesters 4 and 5. There are limited spaces in the co-op option. Therefore, you will apply for the co-op option during Semester 1 and be informed of the process by which to apply. While co-op work opportunities are not guaranteed, as students are in a competitive job placement market, participating students will receive a wide range of services to help them find a co-op opportunity.
Begin a career designing and manufacturing with a Mechanical Engineering Technology advanced diploma from Humber.
Graduates are able to perform engineering design and equipment/technology selection for major components in the design of mechanical systems; liaise with fabrication and engineering staff, as well as with vendors, for technical information and specifications; prepare preliminary and final cost estimates; and prepare and evaluate production processes, costing, tool design and inspection requirements.
Graduates work in two main areas:
- drafting and design, equipment testing, mechanical equipment installation and consulting engineering offices
- the metal cutting industries, programming, cost estimating, quality control and inspection, and in machinery sales.
