Why choose Mechanical Engineering?

Why choose Mechanical Engineering?

If it moves, it’s mechanical engineering!

…structures and vehicles of all sizes.

This field encompasses a very broad range of subject areas, including materials, machines, structures, energy, fluids, controls, design and manufacturing, and biomedical engineering. Mechanical engineers design machines and mechanical systems, engines, motor vehicles, aircraft, satellites, power plants, building energy systems, manufacturing systems, robots, control systems, medical equipment, and consumer products. They are involved in the production of metals and advanced materials, manufactured goods, electronic chips and computer components, machine tools and industrial supplies. Their products are as diverse as the Dash-7 aircraft, the Canadarm, a computer disk drive, an automobile, a carbon-fibre tennis racket, an artificial heart, or a solar panel.

Above all, Mechanical Engineering is a creative profession, with an emphasis on designing, simulating and improving the world we live in. Mechanical engineers are also concerned with energy resource production and utilization, environmental protection measures, and alternative energy systems such as solar, wind and tidal power. Mechanical engineers are versatile, and frequently take on inter-disciplinary projects which overlap with electrical, chemical and civil engineering.

Mechanical engineers find employment in every branch of  industry, including the aerospace, manufacturing, automotive, building systems, energy, chemical and high-technology, sectors, and they undertake work ranging from design and manufacturing to research, consulting and management. Because of the breadth of the field there is always a steady demand for mechanical engineers. Some of the graduates have also used their mechanical engineering education as a springboard to medicine, management, or other careers. The Mechanical Engineering undergraduate program is broadly based and covers all of the important areas of mechanical engineering: mechanics, materials, energy, machines, fluid dynamics, controls, and manufacturing. A strong curriculum with lots of design and hands-on laboratory work.

Mechanical Engineering is …
