Lassonde’s Mechanical Engineering program trains students in a key knowledge base area needed for Canadian industries and enterprises; graduates of mechanical engineering programs are very much in demand in private, government, and non-for-profit sectors.

The program offers a diverse curriculum, new methods of teaching, and mentoring for industry-relevant learning.

The Department will be focused on combining technical acumen with business and entrepreneurialism, public policy, law, communications, project management and leadership embedded into the curriculum.

In addition to traditional class and lab-based work, student learning will be enhanced through discussions, online learning strategies, opportunities to participate in research, and activities with professors and fellow students. Off-campus field trips to real-world environments are another way in which we provide an active, experienced-based learning approach for our students.

What We Offer

 
This is where we will talk about some of the great courses offered in the Mechanical Engineering program.

  • Product Design — developing products ranging from biomedical devices to gasoline-powered engines. A mechanical engineer designs anything that uses mechanical motion.
  • Research and Development — discovering new solutions to human needs or improving older methods.
  • Manufacturing — developing the machines that process materials into products. Designing and building machines and systems of machines that improve operating efficiency is of prime importance.
  • Systems management — overseeing operations of a large system, such as a power plant, as well as supervising the people who work there.
  • Energy — planning how energy is generated, stored, and moved. Industries that produce and deliver electrical power, such as natural gas, oil and alternative energy, employ mechanical engineers to develop more fuel-efficient cars, motors, and appliances.

 

Career Paths

Engineers must combine a good understanding of science, mathematics, and computers with a good knowledge of current technology.
