Message from Chair (Professional)

Welcome to the website of the Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) program offered by the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering of Western University. Our M.Eng. is a course-based degree that is structured to assist qualified engineers in the advancement of their professional careers and to provide students with the skills necessary to address key technological challenges. Our MEng degree provides an excellent opportunity for foreign trained engineers to prepare for qualification exams required for registration as a professional engineer in Canada.  We offer the seven technical streams within our M.Eng. program to allow you to receive specialized training in the specific areas of Mechanical Engineering that interest you. These streams are: 1) General Mechanical Engineering, 2) Automation Technologies and Systems, 3) Composite Materials, 4) HVAC Systems, 5) Mechanical Engineering in Medicine, 6) Materials and Solid Mechanics, and 7) Thermofluids. This website will provide you with general information on our M.Eng. program and specific information on each of these technical streams.

Our course-based professional program is strucfutred to be completed in three full-time terms (one year) of study.

The courses that are offered to our M.Eng. students are taught on the campus of Western University and most of the instructors are Faculty members of our Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering.  Most of the courses are scheduled to be offered in late afternoon and evening timeslots to help students who live off campus.

Western University is located in London; a mid-size city with a population of over 350,000 located about 200 km south-west of Toronto. The campus of Western University is located along the banks of the Thames River and is considered to be one of the most beautiful in Canada. Campus life is full of academic and extra-curricular events and activities. Western’s student family housing in the Platt’s lane estate is only several minutes walk from the main campus and provides all the amenities for comfortable family living.

If you have any questions about our M.Eng. program I encourage you to contact me or the graduate office of the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering.

I look forward to providing you the very best support during your admission process and during your time as an M.Eng. student at Western.
