Mechanical Engineering

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Ontario Tech offers Master of Applied Science (MASc), Master of Engineering (MEng) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in Mechanical Engineering.

The MASc program is research-oriented and provides solid preparation for a Doctoral degree. The program entails a combination of course-based learning and a thesis that involves original research.

The MEng program is a professional Master’s program for upgrading and expanding technical skills and knowledge. It has an emphasis on course-based learning, which can be accompanied by a major project.

The PhD program leads to the highest academic degree, for a career such as a researcher in advanced technology development or a university professor. It involves a combination of academic coursework and a dissertation, which requires a significant detailed body of original research that leads to innovative new research outcomes.

These graduate programs allow a student to study many areas within mechanical engineering. Focus areas of research include mechatronics and manufacturing, as well as energy and thermofluids engineering. Also, automotive systems are a major focus, as many applications in mechanical engineering are related to that discipline.

Faculty members are involved in research in a variety of areas. These include:

  • Automotive systems
  • Dynamics, vibration and noise
  • Engineering design
  • Energy, thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics
  • Manufacturing and materials
  • Mechanics of solids and structures
  • Robotics, automation and controls

Students enrolled in our graduate programs will have access to our state-of-the-art research facilities and laboratories.

Applications currently being accepted.
