Mechanical Engineering (MASc & PhD)



Mechanical Engineering (MASc & PhD)

The graduate programs in Mechanical Engineering at the Lassonde School of Engineering are focused on excellence in learning and professional development for students.

These programs aim not only to advance students’ knowledge and expertise beyond the Bachelors’ level in the field of Mechanical Engineering, but also to develop students’ independent research abilities, creative activities and entrepreneurship skills.

In addition to the focus placed on original research, students are provided with opportunities for professional development through engaging in complementary education and training in areas such as law, business, ethics, technical writing, and communications.

As such, the objectives of the graduate program are designed so that by the time of graduation, the students will obtain and demonstrate the following skills and abilities:

i.  Acquisition of advanced knowledge through classroom learning in conventional, specialized and   interdisciplinary subjects of Mechanical Engineering and related fields.

ii. Ability to independently conduct research through defining, planning and solving of scientific problems to lead and advance knowledge in the field of specialization. Research outcomes will lead to creativity and competence at an international level.

iii. Diversification of knowledge and experience beyond the immediate research field by engaging in complementary education and training in areas such as teaching/mentoring and commercialization as well as public outreach activities.

iv. Effective delivery and communication of scholarly findings with professionals and society at large in various forms, such as oral presentations (e.g. conferences and industrial forums) and disseminations (e.g. scholarly journals, patents and mass media outlets).

v.  Commitment to implementation of professional and ethical standards as well as sustainable practices related to research and professional activities.
