Why study Mechanical Engineering?

Build engines. Design robots. Control explosions. As a mechanical engineer, you will create, construct and control machines. Whether it’s a vehicle, an aircraft engine or an assembly line, mechanical engineers know how to fit that square peg into a round hole, and do it with a little finesse.

Choose to specialize in Aerospace and Propulsion, Design and Manufacturing or Systems and Mechatronics. Our state-of-the-art labs – such as the Engineering Design and Manufacturing and Flight Control lab – will give you experience with the tools you’ll use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:

  • Study the fundamentals of mechanics and materials, vibration analysis, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics
  • Design, integrate and analyze mechanical, control and feedback systems and processes
  • Design and build a wind turbine or particle accelerator

Our program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board and you’ll graduate eligible to become a registered professional engineer.

Program Details

A Bachelor of Engineering degree takes a minimum of four years (120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.

Concentrations:

After the successful completion of first year core courses, students may choose to take one of three specialization options:

  • Aerospace and Propulsion
  • Design and Manufacturing
