Bachelor of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering includes two broad areas of study: thermofluids (which involves heat and power) and solid mechanics (designing mechanical parts, determining the forces on those parts during operation, and analyzing their performance as part of larger machines and systems.)

Provides the opportunity to design, produce and operate the mechanical systems that move us, comfort us and make our lives better.

Program Description
Mechanical, Automotive and Materials Engineering is a multifaceted program in which you’ll tackle real-world problems, interact with local industry, and enjoy a hands-on experience. You can choose to stay in the General stream and not declare an option, or choose one of the following: 
Mechanical Engineering with an Aerospace Option:
  • Teaches the manufacturing, maintenance and logistics that serve the aerospace industry
  • Involves the application of aerospace-related skills toward developing the next generation of aerospace materials, production methods and components, and toward improving aerospace operational challenges
Mechanical Engineering with an Automotive Engineering Option:
  • Explores the exciting automotive industry in one of Canada’s original and most diverse programs in automotive engineering education
  • Includes the study and application of the core technologies, practices and concepts behind the design, manufacturing and business of the automotive sector
Mechanical Engineering with an Environmental Engineering Option:
  • Includes the application of mechanical know-how to solve the sustainability challenges that face our world
  • Combines mechanical engineering with courses in air pollution control, water/wastewater treatment, noise, environmental assessment and waste management
Mechanical Engineering with a Materials Option:
  • Explores the structure and properties of metals, ceramics, polymers and composites
  • Offers specialization in processing operations such as casting, welding and metal forming

Minimum Admission Average: 74%

Secondary Admission Average: 74%

All programs take a common first year.

ENG4U, MHF4U, SCH4U and SPH4U required. MCV4U is strongly recommended.
