DescriptionThe master's programs in Mechanical Engineering allow a student to study all of the main areas associated with mechanical engineering. In addition, the programs feature three primary fields of study in which students can focus and address key technical areas of the future that are expected to be in high demand by employers: Design, Energy and Thermofluids Engineering, and Mechatronics and Manufacturing Engineering.

Alternatively, a student can choose to cover many facets of the broad discipline of mechanical engineering. Topics can vary widely from robotics, automation and mechatronics, mechanics, controls and computer-aided design, to thermofluids and heat transfer. Mechanical engineering is often interdisciplinary, overlapping significantly with such disciplines as electrical, computer and software engineering. Opportunities exist for graduate students to explore these other disciplines.

The Master of Applied Science (MASc) program is research-oriented and provides excellent preparation for a career in research, development, advanced engineering and/or teaching. The Master of Engineering (MEng) program is designed for upgrading and expanding technical skills and knowledge. The MEng program emphasizes course-based learning, sometimes accompanied by a major project.
