Overview

Mechanical Engineering Technology is a rigorous, hands-on, two-year diploma program designed to equip you with the technical, analytical and problem-solving skills required for a variety of dynamic careers in mechanical engineering.

This program offers a foundation in the core principles of engineering, combined with practical application and design.  

The first year serves as a comprehensive introduction to the field, covering essential subjects such as: 

  • fundamental mathematics and science for engineering applications 
  • computer-aided design (CAD) to bring designs to life using industry-standard software 
  • specialized courses that provide a deeper understanding of mechanical engineering principles. 

After successfully completing your first year, you’ll choose from one of three specializations - Design and Analysis, Design and Development, or Design and Automation. 

While we try to accommodate everyone’s specialization preference, selection is based on academic performance in relevant courses, particularly in cases where demand for a specific major exceeds available spots.  

Design and Analysis

If you are interested in designing sophisticated mechanical systems, design and analysis is for you. You will:  

  • learn to create complex mechanical systems and components 
  • study the effects of vibrations on machinery and how to mitigate them 
  • explore energy systems and thermodynamics, the principles governing heat, work, temperature and energy 
  • understand the behaviour of fluids in motion and at rest and their interaction with solids. 

Design and Automation

This is for those interested in automated processes in numerous industries. In design and automation, you will: 

  • delve into designing complex automated systems for manufacturing and other applications 
  • study programmable logic controllers, IEC61131-3 languages and their applications in automation 
  • understand the design and operation, and apply various robotics integrations for industrial and manufacturing settings. 

Design and Development

This is for you if you want to make prototypes for products and systems. In design and development, you will:  

  • acquire skills in creating scale models for testing design concepts 
  • learn rapid prototyping techniques to bring ideas to tangible forms quickly 
  • focus on designing products and systems for optimal human use and comfort. 

Regardless of your specialization, this program prepares you for immediate employment and provides a strong foundation for further studies.

Those in the mechanical engineering technology field tend to be objective, innovative and methodical. 

You need:  

  • the ability to perceive objects in 3D by looking at 2D drawings 
  • sketching or drawing skills
  • an aptitude for math 
  • the ability to solve problems and think outside the box 
  • writing and speaking skills 
  • the ability to work as part of a team with minimal supervision.

You should enjoy: 

  • doing precise work 
  • obtaining and analyzing test results 
  • finding creative solutions to problems 
  • taking a methodical approach to your work.

You’ll participate in a capstone project where you’ll work in teams to address a real-world challenge. In some cases, this project will include an industry partner.

This program is nationally accredited by Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC). 

Graduates may apply for their Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) designation after two years of appropriate work experience. 

While attending SAIT, you can become members of the following societies: 

  • Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals (ASET) 
  • Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) 
  • American Society for Quality (ASQ) 

After successfully completing this program, you’ll receive a SAIT Mechanical Engineering Technology diploma.
