In addition, the master's programs in Mechanical Engineering from University of Ontario Institute of Technology feature three primary fields of study in which students can focus and address key technical areas of the future that are expected to be in high demand by employers: Design, Energy and Thermofluids Engineering, and Mechatronics and Manufacturing Engineering.
Alternatively, a student can choose to cover many facets of the broad discipline of mechanical engineering. Topics can vary widely from robotics, automation and mechatronics, mechanics, controls and computer-aided design, to thermofluids and heat transfer. Mechanical engineering is often interdisciplinary, overlapping significantly with such disciplines as electrical, computer and software engineering. Opportunities exist for graduate students to explore these other disciplines.
The Master of Applied Science (MASc) program is research-oriented and provides excellent preparation for a career in research, development, advanced engineering and/or teaching. The Master of Engineering (MEng) program is designed for upgrading and expanding technical skills and knowledge. The MEng program emphasizes course-based learning, sometimes accompanied by a major project.
This field will train students to understand and employ the synergistic effect between design and innovation as the key for sustaining corporate performance and competitiveness through strategically finding new methodologies for achieving not only a novel solution, but the most optimal solution for a given engineering problem, under provided constraints. Students will acquire new knowledge and skills as well as implement their current knowledge of the design engineering process, concurrent engineering, CAD, CAE, CAM, CIM, strength of materials, machine design, solid mechanics, kinematics and dynamics of machines, calculus, thermodynamics, technical writing and basics of marketing and economics in an integrated course format that focuses on the most advanced real-world design concepts.
- Energy and Thermofluids Engineering
The energy and thermofluids engineering field includes technologies such as renewable energy systems, hydrogen, internal combustion engines, gas turbines, power plants and heating/ventilation/air conditioning (HVAC), as well as related technologies associated with fluid mechanics, heat transfer and thermodynamics.
- Mechatronics and Manufacturing Engineering
The mechatronics and manufacturing engineering field concentrates on computer-controlled, intelligent electromechanical systems, robotics, automation and the development of advanced technologies and materials for improvement of manufacturing processes and systems.
