Western’s Mechanical Engineering program operates on the principle that good Mechanical Engineers must have both a solid background in fundamentals and the opportunity to specialize in any of the areas that the profession of Mechanical Engineering encompasses, which include but not limited to Thermo-fluids, Control Systems, Nuclear Energy, Manufacturing, Robotics, Production Management, Materials Science, Biomechanics, Medical Devices, and NEMS/MEMS.
Following either second or third year, our students also have the opportunity to enroll in an Engineering Externship Program. This eight-month program, offered in collaboration with Fanshawe College, consists of practical courses in machining, welding, metrology, among other things to give exposure to the practical side of the Mechanical Engineering profession.
Our Mechanical Engineering program also offers combined and concurrent degree options. The combined degree program offers Mechanical Engineering degree with Management, Medicine or Law degree. The concurrent degree program allows to combine the Mechanical Engineering program with a major module in the Faculty of Science, Social Science or Arts and Humanities.
