Graduate Programs

Mechanical engineers are responsible for the design, analysis, construction, maintenance, and operation of machines and systems in a number of industry sectors, such as automotive, aerospace, power generation, manufacturing, steel, and pulp and paper. Mechanical engineers commonly go beyond the limits of purely mechanical work, and are found at all levels of management in private industry and the public sector.

The University of Windsor offers two master-level engineering programs — the Master of Engineering (MEng) and the Master of Applied Science (MASc). The MEng is a course-based program designed for working professionals or recent graduates who want to increase their knowledge in multiple, advanced topics. The MASc program is a research-based program that allows students to progress to the PhD level upon successful completion.

The Mechanical, Automotive & Materials Engineering department offers MEng, MASc and/or PhD degrees in the following areas:

Master of Engineering (MEng) — course-based program
