Future Students


N. Dyck in A. Straatman lab

Thank you for your interest in the Graduate Research Program in the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at the Western University. The Department offers two thesis-based research programs: Masters of Engineering Science (MESc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) .

The thesis-based programs provide an opportunity for students to conduct independent, innovative fundamental and/or applied research employing the latest concepts in our experimental and/or computational research facilities under the supervision of a faculty member.

Please view the sample video of some of the research conducted in our program.  We also provide you with a video of a MESc student who recently completed her degree.

We look forward to providing you the best support during the admission process as well as during the program of study. Feel free to contact us or the graduate office if you have any question.

Associate Chair (Graduate Research)
