Program Information

School: Queen’s University
Faculty: Faculty of Engineering Applied Science
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Mechanical Engineering
Description: The Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering prides itself on being a leader in project based, team oriented and hands-on learning. Students can choose to remain in the general Mechanical Engineering Option (ME1) or select a more focused path in the Materials Option (ME2) or the Biomechanical Option (ME3). All students that successfully complete the program will graduate with a highly respected Mechanical Engineering degree. The Queen’s Mechanical Engineering curriculum provides a solid foundation in the basic engineering sciences of solid mechanics and dynamics, materials engineering, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and heat transfer. Building on this foundation are courses key to the discipline of mechanical engineering including machine design, manufacturing methods, and instrumentation and control.

Many students are attracted to the mechanical engineering program because it is the most broadly based of the engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers can be found working in analysis, consulting, design and development, maintenance, management, manufacturing, research and sales. The mechanical engineer’s knowledge and skills are needed in a remarkable range of industries.
