Mechanical engineering is a broad field that involves the application of physical principles for analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. Mechanical engineering encompasses the design and manufacturing of products that are used in every facet of society; analysis and prevention of mechanical system failures; and improving the efficiency and reliability of renewable energy systems.
Mechanical Engineering at Memorial
Memorial’s Mechanical Engineering program is unique in that it is a co-operative education program; students will acquire up to two full years of industry experience prior to graduation. Mechanical engineering students will choose from technical streams of mechatronics; petroleum/offshore oil and gas; thermo fluids and energy; or materials and mechanics. Students complete courses in dynamics, strength of materials, vibration, automatic controls, machine design, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, mathematics, materials, mechatronics, and robotics.
- Machine design
- Manufacturing Plant Management
- Robotics design
- Renewable energy systems
- Heating, ventilation, & air conditioning (HVAC)
Note: some of these careers may call for supplementary education or preparation in the form of graduate studies, experiential learning or professional courses and exams.
