Mechanical Undergraduate

As a mechanical engineer, you’ll learn the fundamentals of design and operation of machines, mechanical systems and technology. While working with jet engines, robots, biomechanical implants and more, you’ll have the opportunity to help shape the world around you.

As part of your bachelor of engineering (BEng) degree, you can gain valuable, paid work experience in an optional co-operative internship program. In third year, you can choose to specialize in mechatronics engineering, a multidisciplinary field that combines the fundamentals of mechanical and electrical engineering with computer science, giving you the tools to develop autonomous systems (such as robots, vehicles, adaptive machine tools and digitally controlled engines). In fourth year, you’ll collaborate on a large-scale design project, leaving you well-equipped to start your career and make a positive impact on society. 

The mechanical engineering BEng degree program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.
