Professional Accreditation, Endorsement and Recognition

The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) recognizes the Mechanical Engineering Technology program as meeting the academic requirements for certification in the technologist category. Graduates must apply to OACETT to become a registered member. After the application is received, OACETT will begin the process of awarding the Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) status.

Work Placement

Humber’s Mechanical Engineering Technology program features an optional, preferably paid, work experience directly related to your program of study. The work experience is designed to enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in an actual work environment, as well as enhance your employability upon graduation.

The work experience occurs after the completion of semester four, for a minimum of 400 hours.
