At Sheridan, we believe the best way to learn is to roll up your sleeves and get hands-on.
Specialize in energy or mechatronics
In your third and fourth years of study, you’ll specialize in one of two technical streams — energy or mechatronics. In the energy stream, you’ll learn to provide environmentally and economically sustainable solutions for energy generation, distribution and usage. In the mechatronics stream, you’ll learn to solve engineering problems with mechanical, electrical, computer and control engineering.
Learn skills that are in high demand
Whether you choose to specialize in energy or mechatronics, you’ll be learning skills that are in high demand. Become a leader of tomorrow in the growing energy systems sector and help solve the world’s energy problems through your ability to analyze, model, design, develop and operate sustainable systems. Or study robotics (including robotics with artificial intelligence and vision systems), programmable logic controllers (PLC) and other automation systems, skills that are extremely valuable as industries continue moving towards automation.
No matter which stream you choose, you’ll get a solid foundation in essential maths (linear algebra, calculus, statistics) and sciences (chemistry, physics, computer programming, electrical circuits). You’ll also take core mechanical courses with a balance of engineering science and design in three key areas: mechanical sciences; systems, measurements and control; and thermal-fluid sciences.
Co-op and internship opportunities
Our Mechanical Engineering degree program features a four-month internship after your second year. You can also choose to apply for our co-op program, which adds a 12-month co-op work term between your third and fourth year. This work experience will give you a chance to apply what you’ve learned in an industry setting, discover your interests, see what employment opportunities are available in the field and build on your résumé.
Our industry partners are excited about the 12-month co-op opportunity, which is longer than many co-op placements. They recognize that this provides more opportunity to establish working relationships with students that they can hire in the future.
Sheridan has strong relationships with industry partners such as Siemens, Hatch, Cimetrix and ABB Robotics. These partnerships are particularly strong in the areas of applied research and students’ capstone projects.
This program offers a new model for mechanical engineering education. Each year, you’ll work with your fellow students on a single project that spans your classes and subjects. This approach will help you better understand how each subject contributes to a larger engineering project. You’ll quickly see the value of each course and learn to apply all your acquired skills to solve an engineering problem that you’d encounter in industry.
As a Mechanical Engineering student at Sheridan, you’ll be a trailblazer in a changing field. Industry is in a period of transition as more and more companies move towards automation and sustainable energy solutions. When you graduate from this program, you’ll be prepared to help lead the way into the future.

Will the school find co-op and internship opportunities for me?
The Co-op Office will help you find and secure a position. They do this through:
- An online job board of positions that you can apply and compete for.
- One-on-one supports and services including resume critiques, mock interviews, cover letter reviews and job search strategy discussions.
- A seven-week Internship Preparatory course that helps you develop your job search skills.
In addition to the above, you are required to conduct your own independent job search. This includes researching companies of interest, attending networking events, making phone calls or sending emails and promoting yourself. Although Sheridan’s Co-op Office has a long, well-established history of success, securing a position is not guaranteed and will, like any course, require your commitment of time and effort in order to achieve a successful outcome.
How do I qualify for co-op and internship?
You and all other students must complete the mandatory four-month internship to graduate. To be eligible, you must complete all of the courses from the first two years of the program and be in good academic standing. The 8-to-12-month Engineering Co-op after year three is optional and students who are interested must apply.
Sheridan may put in place a maximum number of “seats” in the Co-op program which would make entry into Co-op a competitive process and take your GPA into consideration. As this is a new degree program, the Co-op application process is still being developed and more information will be available in 2020.
I'm a graduate from a three-year advanced diploma in engineering technology. How do I join this degree program without starting from first term?
If you have a recognized three-year advanced diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology or related programs from a recognized Ontario community college, we are currently considering pathway options that will require you to complete a number of reach-back courses from the Bachelor of Engineering degree program before joining either the second or third year. There will also be a minimum GPA requirement. You and all other students will be assessed on a case-by-case basis, depending on your academic background.
Pathways will be designed to ensure all students graduating from the program meet the requirements of the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. Students applying for a pathway option will not be considered until September 2020, at the earliest. At this time, you may consider starting in semester 1 for fall 2019.
I already have a degree in another field of engineering. How do I apply to your program? Are you going to give me credit for some of the courses I took at university?
Transfer students will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Is Sheridan’s Mechanical Engineering degree program accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of Engineers Canada?
Sheridan’s Mechanical Engineering degree was designed to meet the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board’s (CEAB) requirements. New engineering programs can seek accreditation from the CEAB once they produce their first graduating class. That means Sheridan can seek accreditation for its Mechanical Engineering degree program when its first cohort graduates in 2023.
At that point, the CEAB will review Sheridan’s self-evaluation of the program and conduct an on-campus evaluation of its own. Once Sheridan’s Mechanical Engineering degree program receives accreditation from the CEAB, any students who graduated from the program that year or thereafter will be considered to have graduated from an accredited program.
How is a Bachelor of Engineering degree different than a Bachelor of Technology degree?
In general, a Bachelor of Engineering degree is designed to meet the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board requirements, and when the program is accredited, graduating students will have satisfied the academic requirements to apply for licensure as a Professional Engineer. On the other hand, a Bachelor of Technology degree program may not be designed to meet the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board requirements.
As a result, graduates from this program may need to satisfy additional academic requirements such as the completion of technical examinations to become a licensed Professional Engineer. Further information can be found on the Professional Engineers Ontario website.
