Our department provides diverse opportunities in fundamental and applied research in all areas of mechanical and materials engineering.
While we are proud of our programs, we also give our students a chance to look beyond our department.
During your stay with us, you will have many opportunities for multi-disciplinary, collaborative research with faculty in other departments, other facilities and other universities and in project throughout the community.
Application Deadline: March 1 for internal funding, but we accept applications any time
"My Master's research project has involved collaboration with a surgeon in Sweden, researchers at the University of Queensland, Australia and NRC in Ottawa. This may sound extraordinary, but it is in fact closer to the norm for our Department. "
The Department is also part of a joint M.Eng. program in Nuclear Engineering (UNENE) with the universities of Waterloo, Western Ontario and McMaster and the Advanced Design and Manufacturing Institute (ADMI) with the universities of McMaster, Toronto, and Western Ontario.
Read through the Research by Faculty section of our website to identify potential areas of interest and supervisors. It is recommended to make direct contact with potential supervisors to discuss specific projects before making a formal application.
