Mechanical Engineering is an engineering discipline that involves the application of principles of physics for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. A M.A.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering provides additional breadth and depth of knowledge, positioning graduates for technical leadership and specialization in industry, or to continue with a Ph.D. degree. M.A.Sc. candidates develop their skills in analysis, creative problem solving, critical thinking, experimental methods and/or analytical models, resourcefulness, responsibility and the ability to present their work to a variety of audiences. All M.A.Sc. students are supervised by a faculty member from the department. The research areas of the faculty members include: biomechanics; manufacturing; mechanics and design; and thermofluids.
