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 make things run.
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 Engineers Canada and you'll graduate eligible to become a registered professional engineer.

Particular attention is paid to grades in mathematics, sciences and courses applicable to the intended program of study. Applicants who do not meet the minimum requirements will be reviewed holistically.
Students will be required to take and complete all prerequisite program requirements during their first year of study.
Any missing prerequisites will be added onto the program at Concordia.
Applicants from a three-year technical DEC may be eligible for transfer credits based on course equivalencies.
Minimum of 65% for exemptions for Math and Physics. Students with grades of less than 65% in prerequisite courses will be asked to repeat those courses in addition to the program.
