The Mechanical Engineering Technology (Industrial Maintenance) program equips graduates with the technical knowledge and hands-on skills required to install, operate, maintain, design and manage mechanical systems. Specific areas of study include: rotating equipment, pumps, piping systems, CNC machining, hydraulics, pneumatics, refrigeration and building systems, 3D modelling, preventive and predictive maintenance, and non-destructive testing. Upon completion of all courses in the program the student will receive a technology diploma.
Through this program of study, graduates acquire the technical knowledge and hands-on skills required to:
- Design, implement, and install petroleum production equipment, power generation systems and general mechanical support systems.
- Operate, maintain, and manage petroleum production equipment, power generation systems and general mechanical support systems.
- Develop mechanical working drawings and computerbased models of mechanical systems using related engineering analysis software.
- Apply foundational knowledge and skills in an industrial maintenance technology setting.
- Conduct, analyze, and interpret research results to improve processes.
- Function effectively as an individual and as a member or leader in diverse technical teams.
- Design or improve existing mechanical systems or mechanical parts based on economic, social, environmental and safety considerations. Demonstrate application of the Conference Board of Canada employability skills.
Given the broad base of the mechanical field, graduates have employment opportunities in numerous industries including oil and gas production, refining, petrochemical plants, manufacturing plants, engineering firms and government departments.
