This accelerated Masters of Engineering Program has been designed in collaboration with several other departments in the College of Engineering for the purpose of developing professional leaders who understand the technical, environmental, economic and social issues involved in Mechanical Engineering. It is supported by the College of Engineering's Coleman Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership. For more information about this interdisciplinary program, please visit the Fung Institute.
Starting Fall 2013, there will be both FULL-TIME and PART-TIME options under this degree. Students interested in the part-time option should note that this is a regular day program. For more information, please visit the part-time option page for the Fung Institute.
For information regarding financial aid, applicants are encouraged to visit the Fung Institute. Information Sessions are offered at many different locations and dates. If you are interested in registering for one of these sessions, please do so at this page.
We would also like to take this opportunity to point out that M.Eng Students cannot be appointed to Graduate Student Instructor (GSI) or Reader positions.
Areas of Concentration
Advanced Energy Technology: Provides you with a foundation in energy engineering sciences as well as entrepreneurial strategies to develop and deploy new energy technologies. You can specialize in combustion and fossil fuels, renewable energy production or efficient energy use, or choose courses from all three areas.
Experiential Advanced Control Systems Design: You will gain experience adapting control system engineering to today's highly complex machines, such as automobiles, that rely on networks of sensors, actuators and embedded controls to operate safely and effectively.
Modeling & Simulation of Physical Processes & Systems: Provides you with the skills to lead the application of sophisticated mathematical modeling to the design and manufacture of advanced devices and systems. You gain experience creating the tools that are used in an array of power generation technologies, manufacturing and automotive industries, among others.
Product Design: Enables you to create, design, develop and market new products to meet the needs of consumers from all backgrounds and requirements, including sustainability. You gain skills in communicating with and assessing the needs of the user/customer, prototyping and evaluating potential designs with respect to the performance specifications and requirements and insuring safe operation, economical production, and reduced energy and resource consumption as well as environmental impact.
