What will I learn?

With an international reputation and world-class research programs, this Department is at the forefront of research and graduate training in mechanical and industrial engineering in Canada. The success of the department is based on the research capabilities of the faculty members and graduate students whose excellence is acknowledged and fostered through funding from external sources. The Department’s internationally renowned faculty members, state-of-the-art laboratories and well established research centers and laboratories for industrial control, computer aided vehicle engineering, composites and computational fluid dynamics, attract Canadian and foreign students from a diversity of cultures and backgrounds.

Requirements for the Degree:

Credits: A fully-qualified candidate entering the doctoral program with a master’s degree is required to complete a minimum of 90 credits. A candidate admitted beyond the bachelor’s level is required to complete a minimum of 106 credits. Candidates admitted with a master’s degree in a cognate discipline, or if they need additional knowledge in an area pertinent to their research, will, in general, be required to complete more than the minimum number of credits. Students may not credit any undergraduate equivalent course towards the requirements of a 90-credit or 106-credit PhD program without the permission of their supervisor and of the Graduate Program Director.
