The Mechanical Techniques program is specifically designed to introduce currently enrolled and recently graduated university engineering students to practical engineering concepts that include:
- industrial safety
- dimensional inspection
- machining practices
- metal forming
- pneumatics/electro-pneumatic circuits
- embedded electronics
- Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining techniques
Course work will cover both theoretical and practical concepts with a focus on lab-based application of course content.
Program Standards and Learning Outcomes
Program standards apply to all similar programs of instruction offered by colleges across the province. Each program standard for a postsecondary program of instruction includes the following elements:
- Vocational standard (the vocationally specific learning outcomes which apply to the program in question),
- Essential employability skills (the essential employability skills learning outcomes which apply to all programs of instruction), and
- General education requirement (the requirement for general education in postsecondary programs of instruction).
The vocational and essential employability skills components of program standards are expressed in terms of learning outcomes. Learning outcomes represent culminating demonstrations of learning and achievement. In addition, learning outcomes are interrelated and cannot be viewed in isolation of one another. As such, they should be viewed as a comprehensive whole. They describe performances that demonstrate that significant integrated learning by graduates of the program has been achieved and verified.
