The Mechanical Engineering Technology program at Red River College Polytechnic prepares you to work in the design and production of high-quality manufactured goods.


Program Description

The topics covered in the Mechanical Engineering Technology program at Red River College Polytechnic include:

  • Design
  • Manufacturing methods
  • Quality assurance
  • Equipment selection
  • Computer-aided engineering
  • Building systems design and control
  • Mechanical analysis
  • Computer applications
  • Supervision and management

You will select some specialty electives in your last term. This specialization completes your training by providing deeper insight into areas of technology that are of interest to you. These areas of specialization have been developed to help meet the needs of industry.

Program Outline

Approximately 65% of your program hours will be devoted to the study of theory. The balance will be spent on related projects or labs. The objective of the program is to give you a good grounding in theory combined with on-the-job training so you can apply your learning immediately upon graduation.

In Year 1, you will do basic calculations, make simple part drawings, and assist in routine technical tasks.

In Year 2, you will have learned the majority of basic technical skills and will be able to design complex parts and processes, manage teams, and conduct critical analysis.

You are required to submit a technical paper following the work term. The paper is graded and becomes part of the Mechanical Engineering Technology training.
