In many ways, computers are at the centre of the manufacturing industry. They run the machines that keep our economy strong and dynamic. They also need strong and dynamic technicians to ensure they don’t break down and are working to their full potential. If you’re excited by the opportunity to work with cutting-edge software in a career that is challenging and highly rewarding, the Mechanical Engineering Technician – CNC/CAM program will give you the skills needed to manufacture the perfect career.
You’ll focus your learning on machine trade theory, machine shop, mechanical blueprint reading and applied mathematics and Computer Aided Design (CAD). You’ll get hands on experience with the computer applications and software used in Computer Aided Machining (CAM) and Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) programs. You’ll have cutting–edge knowledge for the always evolving computer manufacturing world. Plus, there’s also a mandatory co-op placement so you can earn while you learn, testing your knowledge in real situations, in real machine shops.
When you graduate, you’ll be qualified to work in production and jobbing shops, aircraft and aerospace, automotive, cabinetmaking, agricultural machinery production, instrumentation and service industries.
What You’ll Learn
- Complete all work in compliance with current legislation, standards, regulations and guidelines.
- Apply quality control and quality assurance procedures to meet organizational standards and requirements.
- Comply with current health and safety legislation, as well as organizational practices and procedures.

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.
