About the Department of Mechanical Engineering

About the Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers are involved in the conception, design, implementation, and operation of mechanical systems. Typical application areas include aerospace, energy, manufacturing, machinery, and transportation. Because of the very broad nature of the discipline, there is a high demand for mechanical engineers.

Many mechanical engineers follow other career paths, including sales, finance, and management. 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.

The Honours program has a greater emphasis on research and prepares students for future graduate studies. Concentrations in Aeronautical Engineering 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. Many students participate in extra-curriucular design teams, such as Aerospace Design, Formula Electric, Racing, Rocketry, and Robotics. Student associations, including the McGill Association of Mechanical Engineers (MAME) and the Engineering Undergraduate Society (EUS), allow students to shape their community.

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, are organized frequently.
