Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering

Master of Engineering (MEng)

Course-based program

Program overview

Practicing engineers may get a critical career boost from the Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (MEng Course) program. It is designed to support either full- or part-time study, preparing engineers for advanced professional practice. The degree does not typically allow students to continue on to a research-intensive degree, such as a PhD, but it may be a critical piece for a practicing engineer to gain a promotion, or enter a specialized area of mechanical engineering that requires training beyond a four-year bachelor degree. Under the course-based program, students must complete 10 technical courses. These can be completed in as little as one year, but often require at least two years of full-time study. No financial support is offered to students studying in the program.

Completing this program

  • Manufacturing Engineering: Topics may include computer integrated manufacturing, optimization methods with robotics, CAD/CAM/CAE and more.

  • Pipeline Engineering Specialization: Students wishing to complete the Pipeline Engineering Specialization must include six approved courses.

  • Mechanical Engineering: Topics may include combustion processes, mechanics of compressible flow, instrumentation, mobile robotics and more.



Consulting, research and development, forensic engineering, management, process control.

A course-based master’s degree in mechanical engineering is usually considered a final degree.
