About this Mechanical Engineering Technology Degree at Saskatchewan Polytechnic

Mechanical engineering technologists help ensure the machines and systems our society depends on work the way they’re supposed to. You need an aptitude for all things mechanical, but you also need good problem-solving and analytical skills, because your job will involve troubleshooting problems; finding better, more efficient ways to do things; and ensuring vital systems stay up and running.

The job market is strong; the opportunities are diverse. You could work in mechanical design for a consulting engineering firm, as an engineering assistant at a manufacturing plant, as a systems inspector for a regulatory agency or as a technical sales representative for an equipment distributor.

You’ll learn how to apply scientific principles to solve basic engineering problems involving:

  • air conditioning
  • computer applications
  • engineering design
  • fluids and materials
  • industrial instrumentation
  • power and thermodynamics
  • process control
  • project management

Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s hands-on approach to learning means you’ll learn by doing. You’ll design a complete air conditioning system, use cutting edge software to design a machine, conduct an applied research project, troubleshoot solutions on a technical project and more.
