Automotive & Vehicle Technology | McMaster-Mohawk Bachelor of Technology


our program is heavily based on design and then everything that we learn in theory gets practically applied in all these labs that we do right now GM’s donated about seven or eight different cars here so we just basically will put on one car as a group of about four or five students work on the car or whatever we have to do and then report back to the instructor he goes through and checks that we’ve done our stuff if we have then we put on another car and we rotate the groups but after second year we do a four month co-op then we do more in class and then we do an eight month co-op so we’re getting a full year of co-op experience yes I have had a replacement for four months co-op last summer I worked at two at a bush to where they make seats for the Lexus the our a330 I believe right and basically what I did was I was the Quality Management section over there so seats come through look at the seats cosmetic damage is anything like that if they are then I fixed them if I can’t gets transferred over to someone else who can in the repair department so I did stuff like that and actually got to see how the seats were made so it’s we’ve been designing different things in class right and now you get to I should be see on a line on a production line how everything that you design come together this program is sort of opened my view I wasn’t at first I thought it was just pure automotive but the actual vehicle part comes out a lot too I’m able to work on aircraft parts ATVs or that kind of stuff and personally I’m looking into sort of defense contracting working for General Dynamics building tanks and stuff my physics prof he always would he’ll come into class and he has all these slide shows with things that are going on now in the world and things that are being addressed and things that like he wants us to try to like come up with the solution or yeah it’s really cool so it’s it’s a lot of a modern up-to-date stuff so we’re using a new software that no one else I know other university offers right I have always I’ve been riding motorcycles and dirt bikes since I was about 11 years old and I think this is one of the great ways for me to get into something like that like high-performance like learning to modify engines suspension for high performance and get into the racing stream that’s what I’ve always wanted to do
