Course Information

In this three-year advanced diploma program, you will increase your knowledge of design and engineering principles. You will learn to apply theories of design, production and marketing to gain an understanding of the steps necessary to commercialize a design idea. Your studies will introduce you to machining and production techniques, rapid prototyping, principles of mechanical design, engineering analysis, marketing, basic accounting practices, entrepreneurial skills, ergonomics, basic electricity and electronics, reverse engineering and product and design digitizing.

This program shares a common first and second semester curriculum with the Mechanical Techniques (Tool & Die/Mould Making) program. It shares a common third and fourth semester as the Mechanical Engineering Technician – Tool Design. This concept of laddering allows flexibility and options to increase levels of education incrementally.


Throughout this program you will develop the following skills:

  • Product development

  • Machining techniques

  • MasterCAM

  • SolidWorks

  • 3D printing and prototyping

  • CMM programming/quality assurance and inspection

  • Die design

  • Jig and fixture design

  • Mould design

  • Cost estimating

  • Reverse engineering

  • 3D scanning and model modification

  • Prototyping
