Mechanical Engineering Graduate

Specialized studies in mechanical engineering

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Memorial University offers graduate programs leading to master of engineering (M.Eng.) and doctor of philosophy (PhD) degrees in mechanical engineering. Students may pursue graduate studies in mechanical engineering in areas such as: computer-aided design (CAD); controls; corrosion; environmental engineering; fatigue and fracture mechanics; fluid dynamics; heat transfer; integrity assessment materials; mechanical design; resource utilization; robotics and structural dynamics.

Students interested in biomedical engineering, such as biomechanics and occupational health, can pursue research through an interdisciplinary group of engineering and medical faculty.
