Students learn the role of computer integration in linking the manufacturing and design functions. The emphasis throughout is on effective problem-solving and students have the opportunity to apply skills in both individual and team projects. Effective communication, a must in the modern industry, is also stressed.
There is also an emphasis on combining standard manufacturing processes with computer-aided manufacturing and utilization of industrial automation equipment in the production environment.

Applying to the Co-op Stream
The optional co-op stream includes three co-op work terms.
Co-operative Education integrates academic studies with program-related experience in the workplace. This results in better-trained workers who are familiar with their professional expectations and have the skills needed to contribute to an organization right from the start.
The College cannot guarantee co-op employment. All co-op students are required to conduct an independent co-op job search in addition to the supports and services provided by the Department of Co-op Education.
Students will be informed of the application deadline and process to apply for the Co-op Stream. Labour market conditions determine the number of co-op seats in optional co-op programs. Every student who meets academic eligibility requirements may not be admitted to the co-op stream.
To be considered for admission to the co-op stream, students are required to achieve a minimum 65% in Level 1 with a maximum of one dropped or failed courses and must pass MECH1050.
Graduates are prepared for employment in production and manufacturing, NC manufacturing systems, quality control, production planning and control, tool design, plant layout, materials handling, industrial engineering, and manufacturing integration.
