Engineering Future

Are you creative, innovative and strong in math and sciences? Build on your potential by choosing a future as an Engineer or Engineering Technologist. Start your Engineering degree or complete your two-year Engineering Technology diploma in Electical, Mechanical or Instrumentation.

Bachelor of Science in Engineering

What does an Engineer do?

  • Design and develop new products
  • Produce and analyze designs
  • Simulate and test how a machine, structure or system operates
  • Generate specifications for parts, to monitor the quality of products and to control the efficiency of processes
  • “Stamp”/ approve work

Engineering students may specialize in areas such as:

  • Chemical Engineer: Apply principles of chemistry to solve problems involving the production or use of chemicals or other products, design and test products
  • Civil Engineer: Design and supervise the construction of roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges and water supply and sewage systems
  • Computer Engineer: Research, design, develop, test and oversee the manufacture and installation of computer hardware
  • Electrical Engineer: Design, develop, test and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment
  • Mechanical Engineer: Research, design, develop, manufacture and test tools, engines, machines and other mechanical devices

Instrumentation Engineering Technologist (IET)

What does an Instrumentation Engineering Technologist do?

  • Contribute to the design of industrial and/or manufacturing systems by specifying, sizing, selecting instruments and control systems.
  • Recommend and implement modifications to improve these systems

With experience, Certified Engineering Technologists can apply to become a Professional Technologist (P.Tech.).

What they don’t do:

  • Install, operate, maintain, and repair pneumatic, electronic and microcomputer based equipment: see Instrumentation and Control Technician (graduates from RDC’s IET program may be eligible for recognition towards the Instrumentation and Control Technician).
  • “Stamp”/ approve work: See Engineering (exceptions for P.Tech.’s)
