Work with advanced technology from your very first semester.
With rapid changes in industry, companies are looking for engineering graduates who are ready to work from Day 1. Sheridan responds to that demand.
Few engineering degrees in Canada will give you the same level of hands-on experience with industry-standard advanced technology.
Our small class sizes mean you'll have closer relationships with your professors and fellow students as you practice finding solutions for real-world problems in the industry and the community.
Choose your path: Engineering degrees with options
You'll start the degree by building a strong foundation of engineering knowledge. You'll then specialize in either mechanical or electrical engineering, and choose to further concentrate your studies on energy or mechatronics in your third and fourth year.
Begin by choosing either mechanical or electrical engineering:
Learn to generate, transmit and distribute the electricity that powers so much of our lives.
In this unique program, you'll spend up to 50% of your class time working in labs. By using the systems you build, you'll learn what it takes to design, develop and test electrical systems.
Gear up for an exciting career designing, innovating and improving energy systems and advanced automation facilities.
Our mechanical engineering degree gets you working with 3D printers, robotics, HVAC systems, alternative energy systems and more.
Then, further 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. No matter which stream you choose, you’ll be learning skills that are in high demand.
In the energy stream, you’ll learn to provide environmentally and economically sustainable solutions for energy generation, distribution and usage. 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.
In the mechatronics stream, you’ll learn to solve engineering problems with mechanical, electrical, computer and control engineering. You'll 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.
Have you already completed a three-year Mechanical Engineering or Electromechanical Engineering Technology advanced diploma program? If so, you may be eligible to apply your diploma credits towards Sheridan's Mechanical Engineering degree.
