Mechanical Engineering Design Technology
What Is Mechanical Engineering Design Technology?
Mechanical engineering and design is the backbone of modern technology based economies. Engineering design can be found in many industries ranging from automotive, aerospace, robotics, energy, manufacturing as well as many others.
The Mechanical Engineering Design Diploma Program provides knowledge and skills required for research, design and development of mechanical systems, parts and products from their concept stage through all phases of engineering, fabrication, installation, commissioning, operation, modification, maintenance and decommissioning in addition to computer aided design programs such as AutoCAD, SolidWorks, and Autodesk Inventor and Pro/E (Creo) as well as getting hands-on work experience by completing a mechanical design project from beginning to end.
Program Objectives/ Job Opportunities
Students will learn principles of mechanical design, engineering analysis, computer-aided design, prototyping, blueprint reading, geometrical dimensioning and tolerancing and will gain ability to communicate complex mechanical engineering concepts through drawings, 3D models and related documentation. They will develop strong analytical and problem solving skills needed for successful employment in manufacturing, processing, metal fabrication, automotive, aerospace, oil and gas, energy, environmental and other industry sectors.
Engineering practices are worked right into the curriculum so you learn not only the underlying engineering design principles but the latest software as well.
Graduates will also prepare their personal portfolio of technical ideas developed into drawings and 3D models. Such portfolio will help graduates to demonstrate prospective employers acquired knowledge and skills. Graduates will also gain proficiency in the area of computer aided design of mechanical engineering systems, equipment, parts and products.
