The Sky is Not the Limit!


Someone has to build and upgrade the airplanes we fly every day – even the rockets we ride into space. Will that someone be you?

This three-year diploma program teaches you how to function effectively in Canada’s aerospace industry, taking it a step further than the two-year technician program. Work with advanced design programs such as CATIA. Learn about composites and how these materials make the world of difference in flight. Get hands-on experience in machining, CNC and other building fundamentals. In your third year, you’ll also learn machine design, advanced tool design, operations research and management and advanced manufacturing. This program gives you the tools you need to get a job and climb the ranks quickly in aviation manufacturing and engineering.

Top Highlights

  • Developed in consultation with Canada’s leading aerospace companies including Avcorp (BC), Arnprior Aerospace, Bombardier Regional Aircraft (deHavilland), Bombardier Transportation (Thunder Bay), Boeing Canada Technology Ltd. and Magellan Aerospace
  • Learn and work in our state-of-the-art lab facilities located in the new Technology, Education and Collaboration Hub
  • Transfer your skills to other industries including mass transit, car manufacturing, recreational vehicle design and manufacturing, and more
