PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

 

This program is designed to graduate students with a variety of strengths that can be used in a large array of employment areas.

 

  • Discipline-related and application courses are supplemented by further courses in Engineering Drawing and Chemistry to support course content.
  • The program prepares students for employment with the military, technical sales, and engineering companies in both marine and land-based installation, maintenance, calibration, and repair. This preparation is supported by courses in Hydraulics, Instrumentation, Electronics and Controls.
  • Some students find employment as technicians on board ships, and this is reflected by the inclusion of marine applications in many courses.
  • The program is designed to meet the ongoing requirements of the Canadian Navy for the academic and technical education of Technicians responsible for repair and operation of marine systems on board Canadian Navy vessels.
