  • monitor and encourage compliance with current health and safety legislation, as well as organizational practices and procedures


  • develop and apply sustainability best practices in workplaces


  • use current and emerging technologies to implement mechanical engineering projects


  • analyze and solve complex mechanical problems by applying mathematics and fundamentals of mechanical engineering


  • prepare, analyze, evaluate and modify mechanical engineering drawings and other related technical documents


  • design and analyze mechanical components, processes and systems by applying fundamentals of mechanical engineering


  • design, manufacture and maintain mechanical components according to required specifications


  • establish and verify the specifications of materials, processes and operations for the design and production of mechanical components


  • plan, implement and evaluate projects by applying project management principles


  • develop strategies for ongoing personal and professional development to enhance work performance


  • apply business principles to design and engineering practices


  • apply basic entrepreneurial strategies to identify and respond to new opportunities.

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.
