    Course Summary

    The University of Alberta’s MEng in Mechanical Engineering is a great choice for anyone with excellent maths and science skills who wants to know much more about how machines are designed, built, modified and repaired. 

    U Alberta’s Mechanical Engineering graduate program consistently delivers high quality research output, excellent training and professional development opportunities, and well above average employment outcomes after you graduate. 

    You’ll have access to an incredibly wide curriculum which encompasses everything from Task optimisation, Project Management and Engineering Management to Aerosol Science, Robotics and Control Technology, Thermofluids and Biomechanics. You’ll be doing your own research as well, and this can be as transdiciplinary or interdisciplinary as you can imagine. 

    In fact, those enrolled in the Masters or PhD levels are treated more like junior researchers than students, and they’ll have a great deal of autonomy even as they make use of the guidance and support of the senior researchers. 

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Learning And Teaching

    The University of Alberta’s degree programs are delivered through fairly standard lesson formats. In all cases, the teaching methods have been selected to help students gain a deep understanding of the field and its place in society, to engage the minds of the students, to develop an atmosphere of mutual respect, and to ensure an optimal environment for learning. In addition to knowledge of the field, the students will develop independent research skills.

    Career Possibilities

    An MEng in Mechanical Engineering can qualify you for a wide range of roles throughout the public and private sectors. The department is well versed in helping graduates find their feet in any industry, in higher level degree programs or both. 

    They will also bring many resources to bear on your behalf. These include the university’s Graduate Student Internship Program, the Career Mentoring Program, Job Shadow Week, the Transition to Career (T2C) Program, career fairs and employer information sessions as well as several career advising and coaching services.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in 1 year MEng degree. 

    To apply, you’ll need to have completed an engineering degree at the undergraduate level at GPA of 3.0 or higher, or the international equivalent.

    All classes are taught in English unless otherwise specified, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
