This program is well suited for those who enjoy working with mechanical applications. Students are provided with the skills necessary to safely install, troubleshoot, overhaul and maintain a variety of mechanical equipment used in industrial operations. The program also integrates best practices commonly used in the industry. Areas of study include: machining, blueprint reading, hydraulics and pneumatics, electronic, power transmission and lubrication, materials science, preventative and predictive maintenance, project management, PLC, Robotics, CNC, and 3D modeling.

The Millwright Mechanical Technician program is recognized by the Ministry of Advanced Education & Skills Development as a co-op/diploma program. Graduates meet the program standards of an Ontario Mechanical Technician, as well as the in-school training of an Industrial Millwright Apprenticeship.

Eligible incoming students are encouraged to register with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities as program participants and as soon as they start work in an apprenticeable position, they are eligible to register as an apprentice. The training at Lambton College counts toward the in school training requirement for the Millwright Apprenticeship. Students considering Second Career funding are required to contact their representative to receive the most current information regarding apprenticeship options and how it affects funding.

Students who are in good academic standing during the first two terms of the program will be eligible to apply for a four-month co-op job placement as available. A student is considered to be in good academic standing if they have passed all of their courses and have maintained a GPA of 2.5 or greater. Students seeking co-op job placement positions must apply for them and be chosen following an interview process. The college actively pursues companies to participate in the program but cannot guarantee co-op placements for each student.

Lambton College’s CPET, ICET and MTIM programs are the only ones of their type in Canada to be recognized as NUCP accredited. Partnering with Bruce Power, these programs have meet the training standards of the Nuclear Uniform Curriculum Program (NUCP). Students wanting NUCP designation will need to achieve 80% or greater in all courses and need to complete online modules and achieve 8-% or higher on assessment of that material. As well, eligible students in these programs will be considered for field or co-op placements with Bruce Power.

Program Capabilities outline what skills students should possess as they progress through each term/year of their program.

Co-op students and employers will find this information most useful and can reference this capabilities document to ensure students are gaining the experience they need to fulfull the program requirements.
