About the Department of Mechanical Engineering

About the Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers are traditionally concerned with the conception, design, implementation, and operation of mechanical systems. Typical fields of work are aerospace, energy, manufacturing, machinery, and transportation. Because of the very broad nature of the discipline, there is usually a high demand for mechanical engineers.

Many mechanical engineers follow other career paths. Graduate studies are useful for the specialists working in research establishments, consulting firms, or in corporate research and development.

To prepare the mechanical engineer for a wide range of career possibilities, there is a heavy emphasis in our curriculum on the fundamental analytical disciplines. This is balanced by a sequence of experimental and design engineering courses, which include practice in design, manufacturing, and experimentation. In these courses, students learn how to apply their analytical groundwork to the solution of practical problems.

Concentrations in Aeronautical Engineering, Mechatronics*, and Design are available for students in either the regular or Honours program who wish to specialize in these areas.

While the program is demanding, there is time for many extracurricular activities. Students are active in such professional societies as CASI (Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute), SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers), and ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), and in various campus organizations.

Relations between faculty and students are extremely close. Social functions, at which students and professors meet to exchange views and get to know each other better, are organized frequently.

Note: * The Mechatronics Concentration will not be offered until further notice.
