Mechanical engineering is a broad field that involves the application of physical principles for analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. Memorial University’s mechanical engineering undergraduate program encompasses academic learning in the areas of mechanics, vibration, controls, design, thermodynamics, materials and mechanical systems and basic electronics. Technical streams in mechanics and materials, mechatronics, petroleum and thermo-fluids are available in the last three terms of the program.
Graduates of the mechanical engineering program will be able to implement academic knowledge and integrated co-operative education experiences in order to succeed in industries such as automotive, aerospace, offshore oil and gas, chemical, computer, communication, manufacturing, paper and power generation. Increasingly, mechanical engineers are also needed in the environmental and bio-medical fields.
