The Certificate in Mechanical Engineering for Non-Mechanical Engineers consists of four courses providing knowledge of practicing mechanical engineers for non-mechanical engineers. It includes not only the topics taught in universities to mechanical engineers but also the knowledge a working mechanical engineer would gain in the first few years of his/her career.

What Will You Learn?

  • An overview of mechanical engineering fundamentals
  • The most common applications of mechanical engineering at a practical level
  • Basic mechanical engineering
  • How mechanical engineering tasks are performed and what input mechanical engineers need in order to function

Who Should Take This Certificate

  • Technical, supervisory, and management personnel in design, operation, manufacturing, and support roles
  • Anyone seeking a better understanding of the theories, basic academic fundamentals, and practices of mechanical engineering and mechanical equipment 
  • Those who simply would like to refresh and enhance their understanding in the area of mechanical engineering

How Will You Benefit?

The Certificate in Mechanical Engineering can help you:

  • understand mechanical engineering concepts.
  • how to measure units in mechanical engineering.
  • understand the impact of heat.
  • learn about the different materials of engineering.
  • the elements of machines used in mechanical engineering.
  • understand building construction and equipment.
  • grasp how fans, pumps, and compressors work.
  • understand refrigeration, cryogenics, and optics.

Fees & Schedule

The fee for each course is $1195 or register and pay $4400 for the entire certificate in advance and save $380. Please note that textbooks are not included.

This certificate consists of four courses and is asynchronous only. Students start on a date of their choosing and progress through each course at their own pace.

Note: Your registration is not guaranteed until your seat is confirmed and you have been contacted by our Registration Office. As well, fees are based on the current academic year and are subject to change. No deferral of the non-refundable deposit or program fees is allowed. Text and materials related to courses may constitute an additional cost.

Certificate Requirements

It is highly recommended that participants complete the four courses in sequential order. The certificate is awarded after the completion of all four courses, including all quizzes, assignments, and exams. This represents approximately 196 hours of training including online sessions, home study, assignments, and exam preparation. The participants must attain a minimum of 65% for each module and an aggregate average of at least 75% in the program.
