About

Program Details

Traditionally mechanical engineers designed and worked exclusively with mechanical systems. To enable adaptation into the “information age” and to take advantage of the increasing capabilities of emerging technologies, mechanical engineering students need to be trained for a wide span of prospective opportunities.

In the Mechanical Engineering department, University of Saskatchewan students are trained in topics that include statics, dynamics and vibrations, heat transfer and fluid mechanics, solid mechanics and biomechanics, robotics, controls and mechatronics, materials science, analysis and synthesis of mechanical systems, and manufacturing. This broad base of knowledge prepares mechanical engineering graduates for employment in a wide variety of companies, industries and organizations around the globe.

Faculty members pursue research in six broad areas of mechanical engineering:

  • advanced engineering design and manufacturing
  • applied mechanics and machine design
  • bioengineering
  • control systems, robotics and fluid power
  • fluid dynamics, thermal sciences and energy
  • materials science and metallurgy

Research programs range from fundamental investigations intended to advance theoretical understanding to practical studies intended to solve current industrial and environmental problems.  A significant number of research projects involve industrial partners who provide funding, expertise, and access to special research facilities.
