Intended for domestic students, the Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (MEng Thesis) program is often taken on a part-time basis. Students learn from highly motivated and internationally-recognized faculty members as they help conduct cutting-edge research, preparing them to be future industrial and academic leaders. The program usually takes four to six years of part-time study beyond a bachelor’s degree and requires a minimum of five to six half courses. No more than one course can be at the undergraduate level (500 level), subject to approval by the department head or designate. A thesis/project related to original engineering analysis and/or design must be presented. The program doesn’t provide financial support. International students are admitted into the MSc program.
Manufacturing Engineering: Topics may include computer integrated manufacturing, optimization methods with robotics, CAD/CAM/CAE and more.
Mechanical Engineering: Topics may include combustion processes, mechanics of compressible flow, instrumentation, mobile robotics and more.
Research Seminar: Students present at the annual Mechanical Engineering Graduate Student Conference.
Thesis: Students will be required to submit and defend an original research thesis.
Consulting, research and development, forensic engineering, management, process control.
A thesis-based master’s degree in mechanical engineering will give you the pre-requisite for a PhD.
Students are required to prepare a thesis and successfully defend in an open oral defense.
Five courses with conference presentation
