I completed two programs at Fanshawe. Mechanical engineering and mechanical design.

The school was outstanding, with down to earth profs who were friendly and knowledgeable in every aspect of their programs.

The labs are well equipped with up to date technology, which really helps students get an idea of what is to come in the workforce.

There are even free events for new and old students to attend, which really helps the sense of community the school provides.

If you’re considering mechanical engineering, I cannot recommend Fanshawe enough.

As a university graduate, the Advanced Filmmaking program at Fanshawe was an incredibly welcome change of pace. It’s allowed me to focus on the hands-on aspect of filmmaking that I did not have the chance to learn while in University. The shift from reading theories and essay writing to producing content and connecting with my fellow filmmakers was exactly what I needed.

The environment of AFM is a lot more intimate than the university experience. You are always working in groups to create projects and receiving constant feedback from the professors. If you want to learn the ins and outs making a film, and meet the people who are going to help you do it, there is no better place to go than Fanshawe’s Advanced Filmmaking program.
