As a practicing engineer looking for a competitive advantage in the workforce, the MEng program in mechanical and manufacturing engineering is a good choice. It is designed to support either full- or part-time studies, preparing you for advanced career opportunities. The course-based program allows you to complete the degree in two years, full time, with the option to complete it over up to six years of part-time studies. Taking your education beyond your four-year bachelor’s degree, you will enhance your knowledge with 10 technical courses. This will enable you to expand or focus your career, depending on your goals, in a variety of sectors. These range from natural resources, alternative energy systems, advanced manufacturing, biotechnology, aerospace, autonomous systems and mobile robotics, smart and sustainable infrastructure and more.
Completing this program
- Core courses: 10 courses can be selected from topics such as: Geomatics Engineering for Pipeline Systems, Pump and Compressor Stations, Advanced Control Systems, Mobile Robotics, Mechatronics Design Laboratory, Elements of Materials Engineering, Biomechanics of Human Movement and more.
- Professional development: Two professional development courses cover communication styles, presentation skills, supervisory relationships, respect in the lab, health and safety, and more.
All students are admitted to the general MEng in mechanical and manufacturing engineering. Once six courses are completed in the following areas of specialization, students can apply to have the specialization added to their degree.
- Pipeline Engineering (applications to this specialization are made after you have been accepted into our MEng in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering)
- Engineering, Energy and Environment (Interdisciplinary)
- Environmental Engineering (Interdisciplinary)
Upon successful completion of the professional MEng program in mechanical and manufacturing engineering, graduates will have a balance of the fundamental knowledge and practical skills required to work in a wide variety of industries in Canada, and worldwide. This includes, but isn’t limited to, work in robotics and autonomous systems, oil and gas, renewable energy, aerospace, biomedical engineering and nanotechnology.
A course-based master’s degree in mechanical engineering is usually considered a final degree.
A minimum of 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 point system, over the past two years of full-time study (a minimum of 10 full-course equivalents or 60 units) of the undergraduate degree.
A four-year baccalaureate degree in mechanical engineering, or an equivalent degree, from a recognized institution. Consideration is also given to applicants with a four-year science degree in mathematics, physics or kinesiology, or an equivalent degree, from a recognized institution.
One official copy of your final transcript (and degree certificate if degree is not clearly stated on transcript) in a signed, sealed envelope from the institution attended. Unofficial transcripts can be uploaded to the online application for initial evaluation purposes. Admission offers, however, are conditional upon receipt of official transcripts.
- Official transcripts can be mailed to us directly from the institution, or they can be mailed to you directly and you can send them to us yourself
- We will not accept unsealed official transcripts as official
