The Mechanical Engineering Technology program is a practical, hands-on, two-year diploma program that lets you develop strong technical, analytical, and problem solving skills essential for a range of exciting careers in the challenging field of mechanical engineering. During the common first year you will be exposed to a variety of topics including foundational math and physics, Computer Aided Design (CAD) and additional specialized courses to prepare you to enter into one of three specialized majors. Upon successful completion of the common first year, selection of your major will occur. Although SAIT Polytechnic will attempt to help students complete the program major of their choice, grade point for specific courses after the first year will be used in the selection criteria for each major, in case of a seat shortage for specific majors. The following majors are available for the Mechanical Engineering Technology program: - Design and Analysis - Design and Development - Design and Automation Common to all: In all three available majors, a focus will be placed on professionalism, creativity, team work, effective communication and collaboration. Each student will also participate in a major capstone project that will address a real-world industry challenge. The specific areas of study for the three majors will be: Design and Analysis Major: - Mechanical system design - Vibration - Thermodynamics - Fluids Design and Development Major: - Product development - Design management - Universal technical design - Ergonomics Design and Automation Major: - Automation design - Programming - Industrial robotics
