Mechanical Engineering (PhD)
A PhD in Mechanical Engineering gives you technical expertise in specific areas of the field, including industrial control, computer-aided vehicle engineering, composites and computational fluid dynamics. Concordia's Department of Mechanical Engineering is at the forefront of research and graduate training in Canada. The department’s state-of-the-art laboratories and research centres attract students from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds. Our success is based in part on the research capabilities of our faculty members and students, whose excellence is acknowledged through funding from a variety of external sources.
Admission on a full-time basis
