The machines that build our economy and help businesses thrive don’t make themselves. They don’t fix themselves and they certainly don’t run themselves. If a career in the manufacturing sector excites you, and you’re looking for an opportunity to gain hands-on experience while studying, the Manufacturing Engineering Technician (Co-op) program is for you.
Once in the manufacturing technician course, your technical skills will be put to the test, learning and enhancing your skill-set for the modern manufacturing sector. You’ll begin the CNC machine operator course by examining the finer points of numerically controlled machine programming, tool design, production planning, statistical process control, value engineering, advanced machining and maintenance engineering throughout the manufacturing industry. You’ll be trained on cutting-edge numerically controlled CNC and CAD/CAM equipment, giving you an advantage in the work force once you graduate. In the pursuit of your manufacturing technician certification, you’ll also be trained to evolve your skills alongside the always changing manufacturing sector – an opportunity for lifelong learning.
The program consists of four academic levels and eight months of co-op working in industry. The program prepares graduates for employment in areas such as numerically controlled machines programming, tool design, production planning, statistical process control, value engineering, advanced machining and maintenance engineering throughout the manufacturing industry. Modern numerically controlled CNC and CAD/CAM equipment is utilized in this program.
What You’ll Learn
- Analyze and solve routine technical problems related to manufacturing environments through the application of engineering principles.
- Conduct routine analysis of components, processes, and systems through the application of engineering principles and practices.
- Interpret and prepare graphics and other technical documents to appropriate engineering standards.
- Use computer hardware and software to support the engineering environment.
- Apply knowledge of manufacturing materials, operations, and processes to support the production of components.
- Apply knowledge of machinery, tools and other equipment to manufacture and assemble components.
- Conduct quality control and quality assurance procedures as required.
- Recognize the environmental, economic, legal, safety, and ethical implications of manufacturing projects.
- Use and maintain documentation, inventory, and records systems.
- Contribute to the implementation of a manufacturing project.
- Develop strategies and plans to improve job performance and work relationships.

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.
