Program Overview

Get training for a specialized career

After building a strong foundation of mechanical engineering design knowledge in your first two years, you’ll study more specialized subjects in your final two semesters. An understanding of niche concepts such as mechanical design and simulation, kinematics, building facilities layout, HVAC, sustainable design and design analysis may lead to better career opportunities when you graduate.

Gain real-world experience and build connections

Sheridan’s labs simulate the workplace, but they can’t completely replicate it. Put your new mechanical engineering skills to work for our industry partners in two 12-month paid co-op terms: one after your third semester and another in your third year of studies. You’ll also collaborate with peers to help our partners resolve a real-world issue in your capstone research project.

Browse our student project gallery for examples of student work and research by visiting the thinkFAST Capstone project webpage.

Earn credits towards a degree or other certification

As a graduate of this program, you’ll have the opportunity to transfer into the third year of Sheridan’s Honours Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree (some bridge courses will be required.) You’ll also have completed all of the academic requirements of personal certification with the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).

Program Summary


Co-op

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.
