Subject scope

The scope of mechanical engineering collection development at Schulich Library of Science and Engineering covers all areas taught in the Department's undergraduate and graduate programs and investigated by its researchers. Materials are collected in the areas of aerodynamics, aeronautics, applied mathematics (in conjunction with the Rosenthall Library), astronautics (aerospace engineering), automation, combustion, composite materials, computational dynamics, control engineering systems, engineering mechanics, fluid flow and dynamics, fuels, gearing, heat transfer, machine design and drawing, machinery, manufacturing management, mechanical movements, mechatronics, pipes, propulsion, pumps, robotics, solid mechanics, thermodynamics, turbines, vacuum technology, and welding.

McGill resources

The Life Sciences Library has holdings in biotechnology.

The Edward Rosenthall Library of Mathematics & Statistics also collects in applied mathematics.

The Howard Ross Library of Management collects in production engineering and management.
