Mechanical Engineering Honours Curricula

The Mechanical Engineering Honours program is designed for top-level students who wish to try their hand at an individual research project under supervision of a Mechanical Engineering professor. The research project results in an Honours (Bachelor) thesis and culminates in Honours Presentations. The Honours program gives more emphasis to the fundamental analytical disciplines with advanced courses to be chosen from a suggested selection of courses. The program is particularly suitable for those with a high aptitude in mathematics and physics and gives a thorough grounding in the basic engineering sciences. The program is considered to be a good stepping stone to graduate studies.

To be considered for entry into the Honours program, a student must have a CGPA of at least 3.5, and it is expected that CGPA is maintained at that level until graduation. Students may apply to the Honours Program by contacting Honours Program Coordinator after the Fall term of U2 year (term 3) or at the end of U2 year (term 4) for CEGEP students and Fall term of U2 year (term 5) or at the end of U2 year (term 6) for out of province students. For more details on the program, you may visit McGill eCalendar or consult our Stream C Curriculum below.
