Mechanical Engineering

Innovation and modernization by applying science and technology toward the development of mechanical systems.

Are you up to the challenge?

Mechanical engineering, a field where concepts of physics are applied to solve real-world problems, is among the broadest of all engineering disciplines in terms of scope.  In fact, practically all devices and objects that surround us in our daily lives are at least partly designed based on mechanical engineering principles (e.g., cars, smartphones, drones, prosthetic limbs, etc.) or are fabricated in an industrial setting using machinery and tools that are products of mechanical engineering.  Even the generation and conversion of the energy used to manufacture such devices and objects relies heavily on the field of mechanical engineering.  A mechanical engineer can be an innovator leading the design, analysis and manufacturing of new products or be responsible for ensuring the continued efficient and safe operation of existing devices.  A mechanical engineer also has excellent problem solving skills that may be applied to numerous areas such as robotics and automation, heating and ventilation, biomechanics, transportation, energy production and conversion, aerodynamics, hydraulics and pneumatics, etc.  The numerous challenges faced by the mechanical engineer in working toward the betterment of society through the development of new products contribute to making the profession both stimulating and rewarding.

The curriculum within the Mechanical Engineering program within the Bharti School of Engineering begins with a suite of courses in math, physics, chemistry and computer programming.  This provides you with the foundational knowledge required for subsequent engineering courses in the areas of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, dynamics and controls, as well as materials and manufacturing.  The program is structured to allow you to gain broad knowledge in all aspects of mechanical engineering while also providing you the opportunity to tailor your coursework to specific areas of interest.  Finally, with an aim of providing future engineers with a broader view of the world, the technical content of the program is complemented by a selection of courses in the humanities, social sciences, arts, communications, economics, and management.

Program highlights:

  • General option: This program option provides students with general knowledge in all areas of mechanical engineering while allowing flexibility, through additional technical elective courses, to tailor coursework to specific areas of interest.
  • Mechatronics option: Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering involving elements of mechanical engineering, systems engineering, electrical engineering and computer engineering that provides the basis for the design of integrated intelligent systems.  In fact, most devices and machines that in the past were purely mechanical artefacts have now been improved through the use of electronic components and computer algorithms.  The mechatronics option within the Mechanical Engineering program provides students with general knowledge in all areas of mechanical engineering combined with specific knowledge in the areas of digital control, as well as microprocessor design and implementation.
  • CO-OP option: The CO-OP option allows students to spend from 16 to 20 months of their program in paid engineering internships within industrial settings.  This provides students with valuable engineering experience while also improving their prospects of quality employment upon graduation.  The Mechanical Engineering program with the CO-OP option has a 5 year duration.
  • Classroom teaching is complemented with hands-on lab work that demonstrates the real-world implications of engineering principles.
  • Students in the program are regularly brought to work on challenging open-ended design problems that must satisfy requirements and constraints pertaining to functionality, safety, manufacturability, cost, ease of use, and environmental sustainability.  The culmination of these efforts is the fourth year capstone engineering design course where students work as members of a team to design, fabricate and test a device or product according to the needs of a client.  In many cases, clients are local companies or organizations looking to improve their products or services.
  • The Mechanical Engineering program is accredited through the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).  Graduates of our program are eligible to register as Professional Engineers across Canada.

Interesting facts:

  • The Laurentian University Voyageurs Racing Club (LUVRC) is a student-run club that designs and builds a racing buggy to participate in international competitions run by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
  • Teams of Laurentian University Mechanical Engineering students have experienced tremendous success in recent years while competing against schools from across Ontario and Canada in annual engineering competitions:
    • First place, Senior Design, Ontario Engineering Competition, 2010.
    • First place, Senior Design, Canadian Engineering Competition, 2010.
    • First place, NASA-sponsored lunabotics competition, 2011.

Program Regulations
To be in good academic standing and progress in the B.Eng. program, a student must:
1. Meet all conditions of admission
2. Not fail more than 6 credits in any one year
3. Achieve an overall average of 3.5 GPA (or C letter grade or 60%) in all courses in the previous year (or previous 30 consecutive credits)

A student is subject to a one year probationary period for failure to meet any of the above criteria under academic standing.

A student is required to withdraw from the Bharti School of Engineering if he or she:
1. Does not satisfy all conditions after one probationary year or 30 consecutive credits
2. Fails 42 credits or more
3. Has not achieved good academic standing in two consecutive years or 60 consecutive credits
4. Fails to obtain the minimum academic grade and satisfactory lab performance where appropriate in a course on a third attempt

A student who is required to withdraw may petition the Senate Committee on Academic Regulations and Awards for readmission after one calendar year. Such an appeal should have a recommendation from the director of the school before being considered by the committee.

Students in good academic standing who choose to discontinue their studies at the end of the first or any other year, with successful completion of that year, may apply for readmission with advanced standing. Cases are considered on an individual basis.

***Time limit: The Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree must be completed within seven (7) years of initial registration in the program.

NOTE:

The list below includes all courses that are core to either all options or a particular option of the Mechanical Engineering program (i.e., General Option and/or Mechatronics Option).  Details on which courses must be taken within each option of the program are available under the "Degree Options" tab.  Elective courses are not included in this list.
