Overview

A project-based approach to learning is used in the Mechanical Engineering Technician — Design (Fast Track) courses. In small groups, you work on specific projects, learning how to plan, schedule, create, design and build as a part of a team. You also learn advanced computer-assisted drafting and computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) skills.

The Mechanical Engineering Technician - Design (Fast-Track) program at Centennial College offers variety to those who can 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 takes an extra year to complete.
