    Course Summary

    Engineering is a very wide field with several specialisms. Mechanical engineering focuses on mechanical, biomedical and thermal systems – essentially machines with moving parts. Nearly everything you interact with on a day to day basis has benefitted from the expertise of a mechanical engineer, either in its design or at the very least in the equipment which allowed its manufacture. 

    The University of Ottawa offers a BASc degree in Mechanical engineering which can prepare you to work in nearly any industry, from power generation to aerospace. You could be designing next year’s cars, or next year’s artificial hearts. The degree program is quite wide ranging, and you’ll also gain the kind of general professional skills which can be applied to nearly any career path or industry.  

    You’ll be able to take many of your classes in French during the first and second years, bit year 3 and 4 modules are typically offered only in English.  

    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 Ottawa’s Mechanical Engineering program is for the most part delivered using familiar lesson formats. These will include skills workshops and interactive seminars, but new ideas will be introduced in large lectures.  

    The department has several research foci in which you will be encouraged to participate. These include:

    • Advanced materials and manufacturing engineering
    • Aeronautical and space engineering
    • Biomedical Engineering
    • Dynamics, controls, automation and robotics
    • Solid mechanics and design engineering
    • Thermal and fluids engineering

    Career Possibilities

    This degree program is delivered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and you’ll have full access to their lab space and research resources. With more than 50 years of experience, the Department is very well regarded by industries throughout North America. 

    Recent graduates of the University of Ottawa’s BASc program in Mechanical Engineering have become Engineers specialising in Renewable Energy, Consulting, Biomedical applications, Energy Systems, Robotics and Automation, manufacturing, Aerospace and Automotive applications.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 4 year BASc degree. 

    To apply, you’ll need to have a baccalaureate degree with a B / 70% average, or the international equivalent. Other qualifications may be accepted. 

    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.
