Earn your Masters degree
For the Winter 2021 semester, this program will be delivered through a hybrid model that combines remote and in-person learning. View delivery modes for all programs.
Learn job-specific skills and gain real-world experience.
Specialize your mechanical engineering knowledge
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.
Gain real-world experience and build connections
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.
Earn credits towards your degree and other certification
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).
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.
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:
- Mechanical Designer
- HVAC Technologist
- Automotive Designer
- Advanced Manufacturing Technologist
- Aerospace Engineering Technologist
- Power Generation Engineering and Design
- Process Control Technologist
- Product Developer and Researcher
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.
