What will I learn?

Build engines. Design robots. Control explosions. As a mechanical engineer, you will create, construct and control machines. Whether it’s a vehicle, an aircraft engine or an assembly line, mechanical engineers know how to make things run.

Choose to specialize in Aerospace and Propulsion, Design and Manufacturing or Systems and Mechatronics. Our state-of-the-art labs such as the Engineering Design and Manufacturing and Flight Control lab will give you experience with the tools you’ll use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:

  • Study the fundamentals of mechanics and materials, vibration analysis, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics
  • Design, integrate and analyze mechanical, control and feedback systems and processes
  • Design and build a wind turbine or particle accelerator

Our program is accredited by Engineers Canada and you'll graduate eligible to become a registered professional engineer.

Concentrations:

After the successful completion of first-year core courses, students may choose to take one of three specialization options:

  • Aerospace and Propulsion
  • Design and Manufacturing
  • Systems and Mechatronics

Co-op program

The Engineering Co-op program gives you the chance to complete paid work terms that last 12 to 16 weeks. As a Co-op student, you will work for engineering firms where you may:

  • Develop a pre-heating chamber for galvanization processes
  • Create and review mechanical and technical drawings
  • Design mechanical parts
  • Research composite materials used in aircraft

After your degree

Mechanical engineering alumni have established careers in a range of fields. Many take project management positions in aerospace, manufacturing, machinery, automotive design, transportation, power generation and management, or robotics and biomechanics
