Program Overview

Designing the future, today. A solid grounding in engineering sciences and practical hands-on experience in mechanical and computer-assisted design labs provides the combination of applied and theoretical knowledge that employers require in today’s integrated work environments.

In the third year of the program, teams plan, fabricate and test their designs that require the application of all of the knowledge accumulated throughout the progra m. Once built, projects such as medical devices, entertainment equipment, solar-powered products and automotive accessories are often put on display and form an important part of the student assessment. More importantly, graduates learn to work in teams while solidifying their mechanical engineering knowledge and skills.

Note: If you enrol in the program in January, you must complete semester 2 in the summer (May to August) of the same year.

Your Field Education Options
Field study in the form of applied research is provided to all students.

Some students will also have the opportunity to complete a Co-op term. Co-op participants will be selected based on their academic performance, including a minimum GPA of 3.0 and an interview component.
