Mechanical Engineering students gain extensive knowledge in topics including design, fluid mechanics, materials science, manufacturing processes, solid mechanics and control systems.  They develop a foundation in engineering concepts and application of practical design skills which are integral to the program.

Optional Specializations in Mechanical Engineering:

Biomedical Engineering
Focuses on solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, dynamics and mechanical design as applied in the design of implantable and external biomedical devices. Students learn mechanical properties of biological tissues and study the functions of the human body.

Mechatronics Engineering
Integrates core mechanical engineering courses and selected electronics and software engineering courses to design devices with embedded electronics, sensors, actuators and related systems. Students develop professional skills in classical machine design and analysis, electronic instrumentation, computer control systems, and software engineering.

Thermofluids Engineering
Incorporates studies related to airplanes, naval architecture, clean energy technology, processes, and heating and air conditioning.

Mechanical Engineering is also available at UBC Okanagan
