Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines and is considered a cornerstone for any Engineering Faculty. It’s a multidimensional discipline and includes exploring new sources of renewable energy, developing new tools for medical diagnostics and devising ways to create a cleaner and healthier environment. Mechanical engineers have a broad range of technical skills, making professionals in this field equipped with the knowledge to complete any task.
What You'll Learn
You will start with learning the fundamental knowledge that serves as the foundation for mechanical engineering.
After first year, you will have the chance to focus in and explore what you are most passionate about – Mechanism Design, Manufacturing Engineering, Instrumentation, Electrical Systems, Fluid Dynamics, Solid Mechanics and CAD (computer-aided design).
Aside from all the technical know-how, you will pick up some great soft skills – effective communication, project management, law, public policy and leadership.
After second year you can also take part in the co-op program, which will be an early start when it comes to finding your dream job.

You are required to provide official evidence of academic achievement in secondary education. This can be demonstrated through:
- Final grades under the Ontario curriculum (obtained through correspondence, night school or through TVO)
- Credentials through other curricula, such as results from Advanced Placement (AP) or Advanced-level courses in the General Certificate of Education (GCE). (Students may register to sit for the AP and GCE examinations as private candidates.)
In the absence of final grades in courses:
- You must submit the results of standardized tests such as the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) with a minimum combined total of 1170 on the Critical Reading and Math components or a composite American College Testing (ACT) score of 24.
- Your application will be reviewed by an admissions sub-committee. If admitted, you will not be eligible for entrance scholarships. You will be considered for continuing student scholarships at the end of your first year of study, if you satisfy those criteria.
You may also be required to provide proof of language proficiency. You will be considered for entrance scholarships on the basis of your overall averages in the six 4U/4M (Ontario curriculum) or equivalent courses.
