The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at UOIT offers Master of Applied Science (MASc), Master of Engineering (MEng) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in Mechanical Engineering.
These graduate programs allow a student to study a wide variety of areas associated with mechanical engineering. Focus areas of research include mechatronics and manufacturing, energy and thermofluids engineering, and automotive systems.
The MASc program is research-oriented and provides excellent preparation for a doctoral degree. The program entails a combination of course-based learning and a thesis that often involves original research.
The MEng program is a professional master’s program for upgrading and expanding technical skills and knowledge. It has an emphasis on course-based learning, sometimes accompanied by a major project.
The PhD program leads to the highest academic degree, for careers such as a researcher in advanced technology development or a university professor. It involves a combination of academic coursework and a dissertation, which requires a significant and detailed body of original research leading to innovative new research outcomes.
