Mechanical Engineering Design is an old profession that probably started with the first tool a human ever used. Mechanical engineering designer combines art, science, and technology to create, improve, and detail the design needed for production.
The invention of computer and the continuous developments of its applications have huge impact on the profession of mechanical design. It has raised the bar for the acceptable level of designer’ skills. Today’s designers are using Computer Aided Design (CAD) programs instead of the old drafting board and T/set square to visualize and analyze their designs.
A mechanical designer is a key team player in the design process. The role is vital for the success of any mechanical/manufacturing project. A mechanical designer earns a good salary. According to https://www.payscale.com, the annual salary range of Mechanical designers in Toronto is from $49k to $89 k with an average at $66K.
Mechanical designers are usually hired on full-time year-round basis and they are required to have good knowledge and skills of CAD software.
The Mechanical Engineering Design and Technology Program provides the skills and knowledge that designers must have to succeed as professional mechanical designers; the training program is well balanced in terms of learning the theory, the computer applications, and the design standards that are dominating this industry in North America.
Mechanical Engineering Design and Technology Program at Metro College includes the following courses:
All students of this program will also complete a Design Project, an opportunity to put everything learned in the classroom into practice. Students gain hands-on experience with the conceptual design stages, all the way through to a final detailed design, including shop drawings, bill of materials, assembly and presentation drawings, cut lists and a full documentation package!
