Mechanical Engineering Technology

Mechanical Engineering Technology is a diploma program. It provides knowledge and skill development in applying scientific principles to solve basic engineering problems in various mechanical industries. Your studies will focus on mechanical design, industrial systems and instrumentation, and HVAC and controls. The Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists’ (CCTT) Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) accredits the program at the Engineering Technologist level. After two years of suitable industrial experience, you will be eligible to apply for membership with the Saskatchewan Applied Science Technologists and Technicians (SASTT) as an Applied Science Technologist.
