The Graduate Certificate in Mechanical Engineering is a one-year program for engineering graduates who wish to obtain further expertise in the fields of Aerospace, Composite Materials, Control and Automation, Manufacturing Systems and Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics. Our internationally renowned faculty members will mentor you through world-class research programs at the forefront of their field. You will have access to state-of-the-art laboratories and established research centres, working alongside Canadian and international students from diverse cultures and backgrounds.
Fully-qualified candidates are required to complete a minimum of 16 credits.
The Graduate Certificate program can be completed in one year. Students with high standing in their Bachelor’s program and whose academic records satisfy the requirements for Good Standing in the Master’s program in Mechanical Engineering (see the General Requirements for all Programs section) may apply for transfer to the Master’s program.
Bachelor’s degree in engineering with above-average standing.
