Mechanical Engineering Technology - Automotive Products Design (Co-op)

Mechanical Engineering Technology - Automotive Products Design (Co-op) Ontario College Advanced Diploma, Co-op

What is Mechanical Engineering Technology - Automotive Products Design (Co-op)?

This program has a core emphasis on automotive products (parts) design, supported by learning about quality optimization, up-to-date automotive parts production and assembly methods. The aesthetic considerations of parts design, and the artistic abilities to develop and document marketable designs, are key components of this program. Technical project management, planning and supervisory techniques further compliment students' educational experiences. Technical and non-technical courses provide a solid foundation in communications, computer assisted drafting (CAD), and product design. The standards of the automotive industry are emphasized, recognizing the global nature of the industry and the internationalization of standards and practices in the North American manufacturers as well as the benchmark practices of international competitors.

The graduate has reliably demonstrated the ability to:

  • analyze and solve complex technical problems related to mechanical environments through the application of engineering principles


  • design and analyze mechanical components, processes, and systems through the application of engineering principles and practices


  • analyze and prepare graphics and other technical documents to appropriate engineering standards.


  • use computer hardware and software to support the engineering environment


  • apply knowledge of manufacturing processes to the design of components


  • apply knowledge of materials and engineering principles to manufacturing operations and processes


  • apply knowledge of machinery, tools, and other equipment used in manufacturing processes


  • specify, coordinate, and conduct quality control and quality assurance procedures


  • recognize the environmental, economic, legal, safety, and ethical implications of mechanical engineering projects


  • use and maintain documentation, inventory, and records systems


  • participate in the management of an engineering project


  • develop strategies and plans to improve job performance and work relationships.

Co-operative Education is a mandatory component of all Co-op programs at Georgian College; it has been designed as a process by which students integrate their academic education with work experience related to their programs of study. This integration affects much more than simply earning a salary, including the adjustment to the work environment and the development of professionalism. It also reinforces skills and theory learned during academic semesters, develops professional contacts, job knowledge and career path, improves human relations and communication skills, and promotes personal maturity and financial independence.

Students are requested to register, attend and participate in their scheduled co-operative education classes. These classes are scheduled for all first year students and are expected to be completed in order for students to proceed successfully to their first co-op work experiences. To ensure students are eligible to proceed onto any co-op work experience, students should refer to Promotional Status and Eligibility for Co-op as outlined in the College Calendar. Co-op policies and procedures can be located on our website: www.georgiancollege.ca/student-services/co-op-and-career-services/students-tab/

Georgian College follows the Co-operative Education guidelines set out by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE) and Education at Work Ontario (EWO) by supporting the learning outcomes designed for the program specific graduate profile and curriculum as set out by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
