Mechanical Engineering Technology
Mechanical engineering technologists and technicians work with engineers as part of an engineering team.
The engineers plan and design projects - then the engineering technologists and technicians help make them a reality, seeing them through to completion.
Engineering technologists and technicians must have a theoretical background to work directly with engineers and architects - and the practical, hands-on experience to oversee the work of craftspeople.
Both technologists and technicians help implement the designs of engineers, but technologists - because they have a more advanced degree - tend to have more supervisory and managerial positions than technicians, and usually work more closely with design engineers and planners.
There seems to be a job to suit almost every personality and interest ... everything from research engineering for those who like discovering new knowledge, to design engineering for the imaginative and creative student.
