  • Objectives
    The millwright is employed in the installation, repair and maintenance of complex industrial mechanical machinery in existing and new construction. As such, the millwright deals with critical pieces of machinery which are vital to the operation of the plant. Consequently, qualified millwrights are in high demand by industry. This program instructs and trains students to diagnose, install and maintain plant machinery in a systematic manner with a high degree of efficiency. The College's new millwright laboratory provides the student with the opportunity to train on real industrial equipment utilized in industry. The Industrial Mechanical Millwright Techniques program provides the student with training equivalent to the in-school component of a millwright aprenticeship. In addition, the student increases his/her communication skills and gains hands-on millwright training in the laboratory. Students completing this program can enter as an apprentice in industry or continue into the College's Industrial Mechanical Millwright Technician program.
  • Practical experience
    The Skills Technology Institute (SkyTech) sponsors qualified Co-op Apprenticeship students to work as apprentices on a cooperative work term following their first and second academic years. This co-op placement is optional. Students will be selected based on an application process, which review past academic achievements. Please note that students on appropriate co-op placements receive credit for all in-school apprenticeship training.
