ENGINEERING DESIGN TECHNOLOGY DIPLOMA
Design the products, machines, factories, buildings, highways and transit systems that humans rely on. Engineering Design Technology graduates work directly with engineers and technologists to produce and analyze digital designs and to simulate and test machines, structures, and systems. Enter a creative career in engineering design and enjoy a future as an innovator, problem solver and visionary.
What Will You Learn in the Engineering Design Technology Program?
In just one year, Digital School’s comprehensive program equips you with the creative and applied skills you need to enter the workforce directly after graduating:
- Utilize rapidly advancing software for projects such as Revit software for BIM, Inventor software for mechanical design and Civil 3D for civil design
- Understand the BIM concept, its technologies and processes, and its application throughout the building lifecycle
- Apply 2D and 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) skills
- Produce, analyze and test designs such as machines, structures or systems
- Use prescribed methods of design and apply industry standards, codes and regulations
- Apply the practices and procedures of surveying, including developing plans, cross-sectional views, and contour maps
- Understand engineering contracts and the legal system in Alberta
Embracing BIM for Education
BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a 3D model-based process that gives design and construction professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct and manage buildings. BIM is revolutionizing the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry, a shift similar to the evolution from hand drafting to Computer Aided Design (CAD).
Digital School is committed to exposing learners to the value of working with a BIM (Building Information Model) and developing appropriate skills as they progress through our programs. We take this BIM approach to ensure our graduates are successful in delivering the type of final output required of building owners, operators and managers.
What Career Paths Can You Follow After Graduation?
Students who earn the Engineering Design Technology diploma can choose from a variety of career paths. Civil engineers, mechanical engineers, structural engineers, and professional architects rely on skilled technicians to help them produce and communicate design data in a range of work environments, including:
- Engineering firms
- Architectural offices
- BIM and CAD specific workgroups
- Homebuilders and construction companies
- Engineering consultants (municipal, provincial and federal)
