After building a strong foundation of mechanical engineering knowledge in your first two years, you’ll be exposed to more specialized subjects in your final two semesters. An understanding of niche concepts such as mechanical design, machine kinematics and dynamics, programmable controllers, fluid mechanics and energy systems may lead to better career opportunities when you graduate.
Sheridan's labs simulate the workplace, but there's no substitute for real-world experience. Put your new mechanical engineering skills to work for our industry partners in two paid co-op terms: one after your third semester and another in your third year of studies. You'll also work with peers on capstone research and applied research projects that help our partners resolve real-world issues.
Browse our student project gallery for examples of student work and research by visiting the thinkFAST Capstone project webpage.
Want to take your education to the next level? As a graduate of this program, you may be able to transfer into the third year of Sheridan's Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree (some bridge courses will be required). You'll also have completed all the academic requirements for personal certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).
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:
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 may be advised individually regarding other related programs.
All applicants whose first language is not English must meet Sheridan's English proficiency requirements.
An advanced diploma in mechanical engineering can create opportunities that a two-year diploma might not provide. Employers value the co-op experience and specialized knowledge you gain in your third year of studies.
You might qualify for more advanced roles immediately after graduation, such as:
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.

In our Honours Bachelor of Computer Science program, you'll learn foundational skills that prepare you to work in any area of computer science. But you’ll also have the chance to specialize in one of four emerging fields that interests you the most.
In the first year of the program, you’ll be introduced to each of these four fields: cloud computing, data analytics, game engineering, and network engineering.
Then, you’ll focus your studies on your selected specialization. You’ll take eight courses in your specialization of choice, gaining specific skills that are not taught in traditional diploma and degree programs. Your computer science specialization will give you a competitive advantage when you graduate.
