Sheridan’s three-year advanced diploma prepares you for mechanical engineering work and provides pathways to higher education.
Specialize your mechanical engineering knowledge
After building a strong foundation of mechanical engineering knowledge in your first two years, you’ll be exposed to more specialized subjects in your final two semesters. An understanding of niche concepts such as mechanical design, machine kinematics and dynamics, programmable controllers, fluid mechanics and energy systems may lead to better career opportunities when you graduate.
Gain real-world experience and build connections
Sheridan’s labs simulate the workplace, but there’s no substitute for real-world experience. Put your new mechanical engineering skills to work for our industry partners in two paid co-op terms: one after your third semester and another in your third year of studies. You’ll also work with peers on capstone research and applied research projects that help our partners resolve real-world issues.
Earn credits towards your degree and other certification
Want to take your education to the next level? As a graduate of this program, you may be able to transfer into the third year of Sheridan’s Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree. (some bridge courses will be required). You’ll also have completed all the academic requirements for personal certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).
An advanced diploma in mechanical engineering can create opportunities that a two-year diploma might not provide. Employers value the co-op experience and specialized knowledge you gain in your third year of studies.
You might qualify for more advanced roles immediately after graduation, such as:
- Mechanical Designer
- HVAC Technologist
- Automotive Designer
- Advanced Manufacturing Technologist
- Aerospace Engineering Technologist
- Power Generation Engineering and Design
- Process Control Technologist
- Product Developer and Researcher
