A new technology co-op program is being offered in Ontario, designed to build skills for use in manufacturing innovation.

 

Co-sponsored by McMaster University and Mohawk College – both based in Hamilton, Ont. – the Bachelor of Technology Co-op course is a four-year program featuring studies in Process Engineering, Biotechnology and Automotive Technology.

 

Specifically, the Process Engineering curriculum will include advanced chemical, mechanical, electrical and computer engineering concepts; the Biotechnology curriculum will include biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, and analytical instrumentation; and Automotive Technology will combine theory with hands-on experience in CAD for vehicle/system design and manufacturing processes.

 

The Bachelor of Technology program, which will begin in January 2011, also has a Degree Completion Program (DCP) with disciplines in Energy Engineering, Manufacturing Technology, Computing and Information Technology, and Civil Infrastructure Technology.
