Program Information

School: McGill University
Faculty: Faculty of Engineering
Degree: Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study: Mechanical Engineering
Description: Mechanical engineers are traditionally concerned with the conception, design, implementation, and operation of mechanical systems. Typical fields of work are aerospace, energy, manufacturing, machinery, robotics, and transportation. Due to the very broad nature of the discipline, there is usually a high demand for mechanical engineers. A recent study indicated that approximately 40% of all engineering openings were for graduates of mechanical engineering.

To prepare the mechanical engineer for a wide range of career possibilities, there is a heavy stress in our curriculum on the fundamental analytical disciplines. This is balanced by a sequence of experimental and design engineering courses, which include practice in design, manufacture, and experimentation. In these courses, students learn how to apply their analytical groundwork to the solution of practical problems. Specialist interests are satisfied by selecting appropriate complementary courses from among those offered with a specific subject concentration, such as management, industrial engineering, computer science, controls and robotics, bio-engineering, aeronautics, combustion, and systems engineering. Students with a strong interest in the basic sciences and a career in research and development should consider the honours program.
