Graduate Research Program

Graduate Student in Lab


The goal of our graduate research program is to train MESc and PhD students for independent research in today's changing technological world in either industry or academia.  

Mechanical and Materials Engineering offers research intensive, thesis-based MESc (2-yr) and PhD (4-yr) programs, providing leading edge research using state of the art experimental and computational research facilities. The department has research strengths in diverse areas addressing present day challenges, as well as developing technologies for the future. Our two or four year program will provide a motivating training environment and an opportunity in conducting independent investigation, using developed analytical skills to produce highly capable professionals.
