Mechanical Engineering


  • The MASc is a research-based program in which you complete four graduate level courses and a thesis.
  • You will need an advisor and will conduct research under your advisor’s supervision.
  • This program is designed to be completed in two years.
  • Scholarships and graduate assistantships are available by application.
  • Continuation of your education is possible with this degree.


  • An MEng Degree may be awarded upon successful completion of a total of eight courses (the MEng has no research component/thesis/work with a faculty supervisor). Of these eight courses:
    • Five courses must be from the student's department (major; mechanical)
    • Plus three required courses: Engineering Technical Communications, Engineering Mathematics and Engineering Project Management (to be taken in the first or second semester of the program)
    • Co-op program is optional and students must apply for admission in their first study term.
  • No funding or scholarships are available.
  • Please also review the MEng website for a note regarding admissions


  • An applicant for admission to a course of graduate studies leading to the PhD degree in engineering must normally be a graduate of a recognized university with a research-based master's degree in engineering or applied science.
  • Applicants with degrees in related fields will be considered but will normally require strengthening of their background in engineering.
  • At the discretion of the Program Graduate Committee, Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) may be required.
  • The Mechanical Engineering graduate program recognizes the close relationship between advanced level education and the advancement of knowledge, and is committed to excellence in graduate teaching and research.
  • An emphasis on fundamental scientific research and strong research collaborations with industry characterize our programs.

Areas of Specialization

  • Aerospace
