Get a well-rounded education designed for modern industrial jobs.
Build a broad foundation in mechanical engineering
Gain the fundamental knowledge needed to work in the field of mechanical engineering! In addition to basic math and science, you’ll study advanced subjects such as calculus, machine kinematics, fluid power, process controls and industrial practices. Learn about the latest equipment and technologies, including programmable logic controllers, materials testing and additive manufacturing.
Sheridan's mechanical engineering diploma classes are designed to give you a taste of the real world. Develop job-specific skills working in our laboratory environment, under close supervision from professors with extensive industrial experience. You'll also have the chance to work with our industry partners on various applied research projects.
Keep your options open
Each of our mechanical engineering programs share a common first year, allowing you to easily transfer into design and drafting or electromechanical specializations. After your second year, you can either enter the workforce or go into the third year of Sheridan's Mechanical Engineering Technology advanced diploma, which offers a pathway into our Mechanical Engineering four-year degree.
Explore your future campus
As a student in our Mechanical Engineering Technician program, you’ll work in labs designed to imitate the workplace. Want a look inside? Take a virtual tour of our Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design.

Ontario Secondary School Diploma or equivalent, including these required courses:
- One English, Grade 12 (ENG4C or ENG4U)
- Grade 12 Mathematics for College Technology (MCT4C) or Grade 11 Functions (MCF3M) or Grade 11 Functions and Relations (MCR3U) or any Grade 12 (U) mathematics
Applicants who do not meet the admission requirements will be invited to complete pre-admission tests in mathematics and English. Applicants asked to take the test are considered for admission to Term 1 contingent on receiving a minimum grade of 60% in both the pre-admission mathematics/English tests.
Applicants lacking the Mathematics admission requirement for this program may wish to upgrade their Mathematics prior to application. For upgrading information, please contact us.
Applicants may also consider applying to our Technology Fundamentals program. Successful completion of this program will meet the Mathematics requirement and will provide a broader sense of the Science and Technology fields.
Eligible applicants will be selected on the basis of their previous academic achievement (the average of their six highest senior-level credits, including required courses), and/or results of pre-admission testing.
Applicants who do not meet the admission requirements for this program will be assessed and advised individually and may be considered for other, related programs.
English Language Proficiency
All applicants whose first language is not English must meet Sheridan's English proficiency requirements.
In just two years, you could be qualified to do mechanical engineering work in many different areas of industry and manufacturing. Potential jobs include:
Recent graduates moved into the following careers:
- Plant Operations
- Quality Control Technician
- Production Technician
- Process Control Technician
- Product Development and Testing Technician
- Computer-assisted Manufacturing (CAM) Technician
Students in this program may apply to the co-op program during their first academic semester. Enrolment in the co-op program is limited through an additional co-op application process that takes place in the first semester. Students in the co-op program are eligible to complete a co-op work term during the 4-month term following the second semester. The program-specific academic standard required for participation in co-op can be found here: Academic Standards for Co-op and Internship.
Co-operative Education is a form of work-integrated learning that links classroom learning with paid or unpaid work experiences within a professional environment. Co-op work terms are related specifically to the academic studies of each student. The work terms provide an opportunity to learn by doing. You’ll apply theory to practice, develop a meaningful view of the working world, and cultivate an awareness of yourself as a professional.
Students receive in-class and 1-on-1 career education support to help prepare for the work term. The co-op component is delivered by Sheridan’s Co-operative Education Office, which facilitates over 1,800 co-op and internship work terms per year Sheridan-wide.
