The MEng in Mechanical Engineering is a course-based program for practicing engineers who want to further develop their skills and enhance their ability to solve complex technological problems. The program provides access to state-of-the-art laboratories and research centres for industrial control, computer-aided vehicle engineering, composites and computational fluid dynamics. Join a diverse body of students from all over the world in an internationally-renowned department that will support you in your research and provide graduate training at the forefront of your field. Students interested in pursuing a doctorate should apply to the MASc program instead.
Bachelor’s degree in engineering or equivalent with high standing.
Proficiency in English. Applicants whose primary language is not English must demonstrate that their knowledge of English is sufficient to pursue graduate studies in their chosen field. Please refer to the Graduate Admission page for further information on the Language Proficiency requirements and exemptions.
In addition to the general admission requirements, the Gina Cody School (GCS) may require applicants to write the Engineering Writing Test (EWT) as a condition of admission to all graduate programs in Engineering and Computer Science. Depending on the result, students may be required to complete remedial English language courses in addition to their program requirements.
Engineering Writing Test (EWT). The Engineering Writing Test examines students’ ability to provide reasoned assessment of a short technical composition in English or French, and their ability to provide a qualitative account of quantitative or graphically presented data. The test is offered a number of times throughout the year. Based on their performance in the test, students may be asked to take remedial courses.
Students may specialize in one of the following branches:
Thermofluids Engineering: MECH 6111 Gas Dynamics (*) (4 credits)
MECH 6121 - Aerodynamics (*) (4 credits)
MECH 6131 - Conduction and Radiation Heat Transfer (4 credits)
MECH 6171 - Turbomachinery and Propulsion (*) (4 credits)
MECH 6181 - Heating, Air Conditioning and Ventilation (*) (4 credits)
ENGR 6201 - Fluid Mechanics (4 credits)
ENGR 6261 - The Finite Element Method in Computational Fluid Dynamics (4 credits)
20 credits minimum – 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). ‡ Students must obtain approval from the Aerospace Program Director for all the courses listed in topic area E11.
Remaining credits – Chosen from
ENGR 7011 - Graduate seminar in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (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).
*Winter Application deadline has been extended to August 1.
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.
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.
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.
