Mechanical Engineering at Guelph is built around concepts of sustainability and sustainable design to equip graduates to tackle issues associated with emerging technologies. Graduates in mechanical engineering are able to apply mathematical, scientific and engineering principles to a wide variety of fields and find employment across the private and public sectors. The program provides students with a common base of knowledge essential to mechanical engineering, and then allows them to select from a menu of electives to attain a degree of specialization in one of five areas, or to choose electives which broaden their general knowledge base. Elective concentrations are available in the areas of wind and solar energy, food and beverage engineering, mechatronics, manufacturing system design and bio-mechanics.
If a system moves or uses energy, a mechanical engineer was involved in its design, manufacturing and maintenance. As a Mechanical Engineering student, you will obtain a degree of specialization in one of four areas, or choose electives which broaden the general knowledge base in mechanical engineering. In addition to the general mechanical stream, students have the opportunity to focus on areas such as energy, mechatronics, manufacturing system design and bio-mechanics. Mechanical Engineering graduates are able to apply mathematical, scientific and engineering principles to a wide variety of fields and are employed across the private and public sectors.
The Co-op program in Mechanical Engineering is a five year program, including five work terms. Students must complete a Fall, Winter and Summer work term.
Note: A minimum of four Co-op work terms including a Summer, Fall, and Winter are necessary to complete the Co-op requirement. *A fifth Co-op work term is optional and if completed, the total number of credits will equal 26.00.
