Program overview

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.
