Mechanical Engineering, MASc

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (by degree)

Degree requirements for the Master of Applied Science (MASc) in Mechanical Engineering are listed below. For general program information, admission requirements, graduate faculty lists and/or details on part-time options, see Mechanical Engineering .

Degree requirements

The objective of the MASc program in Mechanical Engineering is to prepare students for careers in research, development and advanced engineering. Graduates of the program will be able to work as engineers in research and development or other areas in advanced technology companies or government agencies, or continue their education and pursue a PhD degree. The objectives of the MASc program are achieved through a combination of course work, supervised research, a research seminar and a research thesis.

For the MASc in Mechanical Engineering, students must complete five courses for a total of 15 credits and a thesis worth 15 credits. Students must also successfully complete ENGR 5003G - MASc Seminar for Automotive and Mechanical Engineering  and ENGR 5001G - MASc Thesis . Students who select the Design field will be required to take at least one of the Design courses numbered as 527XG.

Undergraduate courses

In addition to the required graduate courses, students may take only one senior year undergraduate engineering course (i.e., with prefix ENGR 4xxxU) in lieu of a graduate-level course, provided they have not already taken a similar course during their undergraduate degree and the course is approved by both the student's supervisor and the graduate program director.

Courses outside of the program

Courses in other graduate programs at the university may be taken provided that students have not taken similar courses during their undergraduate or master's degrees and the courses are approved by the graduate program director. At least half of a student's courses must be within their program in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. Students who wish to take courses outside of their program must gain approval from the graduate program director. Students who are uncertain about the academic background needed for a graduate course should consult the course instructor before registering for the course.

Course listing

In the list of engineering graduate courses below, courses related to the Energy and Thermofluids Engineering field are numbered as ENGR 51xxG. Courses related to the Mechatronics and Manufacturing Engineering field are numbered as ENGR 5221G through ENGR 5263G . Courses related to the Design field are numbered as ENGR 527XG.

PhD students may select from the courses listed for Energy and Thermofluids Engineering, Mechatronics and Manufacturing Engineering, and the core automotive courses  (ENGR 53xxG).

Courses numbered ENGR 50xxG are common to all fields. Note that ENGR 6000-level courses are restricted to PhD students.
