The PhD Program in Mechanical Engineering is designed to provide advanced studies in research in theoretical foundation of the discipline and its applications. The main objective of the PhD program is for candidates to demonstrate ability to carry-out high quality independent research, culminating in a thesis presentation and defence.
The department offers two types of Master’s degrees. One is Thesis-based which educates students more in depth on a chosen thesis topic, the other is based on course work.
These programs are designed to provide the students with the opportunity to enhance specific areas of knowledge gained at the undergraduate level and to introduce them to research aimed at the acquisition of new scientific knowledge for the purpose of advancing the design of technological systems.
These programs are designed to provide practicing engineers the opportunity to strengthen and extend knowledge they acquired at the undergraduate level, to further develop their analytical skills, and to enhance their ability to comprehend and solve complex and advanced technology concepts.
This program is specially designed for those students who wish to specialize in Aerospace Engineering and is offered in cooperation with other Quebec Universities (Ecole Polytechnique, Ecole Technologie Superieure, Universite Laval, McGill University, Universite Sherbooke) and Aerospace industries (Bombardier, Bell Helicopter Textron, CAE, CMC Electronics, Canadian Space Agency, EMS Technologies, Pratt & Whitney Canada, Rolls Royce Canada and others).
This program is designed to provide practicing engineers the opportunity to obtain knowledge in five specialized areas within a short time.
