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 centres 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.
The MEng program is a course-based program designed to provide practicing engineers the opportunity to strengthen and extend knowledge they acquired at the undergraduate level, to further develop their analytical skills, and to enhance their ability to comprehend and solve complex and advanced technology concepts.
Students interested in pursuing a doctorate should apply to the MASc program instead.
Priority will be given to those who apply within the official deadlines listed above. Some programs may continue to accept applications after these deadlines. For more information, please contact the department.
Students must complete 45 credits of course-work as described below:
Specialization Courses: A minimum of nine courses (36 credits) chosen as follows:
Core Courses: The following three INDU courses (12 credits) in topic area E12 must be completed:
INDU 6111, 6211, 6311.
Area Electives: A minimum of 16 credits must be completed from the courses listed below:
INDU courses in topic area E12 excluding the core courses;
ENGR 7011 (1 credit);
MECH 6421, 6611, 6631, 6941†.
Other INDU 6000, MECH 6000† and MECH 7000† level courses.
Up to 9 credits may be chosen from courses listed under the Topic Area E72 or other topic areas in the Engineering Courses section. The student must obtain written approval from the Departments that offer these courses.
A student may take project courses (ENGR 6971, ENGR 6981, ENGR 6991) or the industrial training (ENCS 6931), replacing courses specified in Department Electives or courses specified in General Electives.
† Students must obtain approval from the Aerospace Program Director for all the courses listed in Topic Area E11.
Project. Depending on individual department requirements, students may choose to do one or more projects as part of their program. They do so by registering for one or more of the sequence ENGR 6971, 6981, 6991. Where students choose to carry out a multi-course project, the project will be graded by at least two professors.
Graduate students from the Mechanical, Industrial and Aerospace Engineering Department are invited to apply for Teaching Assistant positions. A minimal mark of A- in the course they are requesting to teach is needed. The priority level when assigning the graduate applicants is: Ph.D., M.A.Sc., and then M.Eng. Priority is to be given to students with good language abilities. Learn more about MIAE Teaching Assistantships.
