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 may specialize in one of the following branches: a. Industrial Control Systems; b. Materials and Composites; c. Mechanical Systems; d. Thermofluid Engineering. Students must complete 45 credits in courses. Courses must be selected as follows:
A minimum of 16 credits chosen from the courses listed in one of the following specialization areas:
A minimum of 20 credits chosen from Topic Areas E01, E03, E04, E05, E06, E10, E11‡, E12, E51, E52, E53, E54, E56, E57, MECH courses in E02, E63 (ENCS 6931 or any of ENGR 6971, ENGR 6981, and ENGR 6991).
The remaining credits may be chosen from:
Graduate seminar in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, ENGR 7011 (1 credit)
Courses chosen from other Topic Areas in the Engineering Courses section. (The student must obtain written approval from the Department that offers the course).
‡ Students must obtain approval from the Aerospace Program Director for all the courses listed in topic area E11.
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.
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.
