A broadly-based program that will allow you to work in areas as diverse as aviation, occupational health and safety, the environment, or the manufacturing sector!
How did the École de technologie supérieure’s master's program in mechanical engineering achieve renown over the years? At ÉTS, research in mechanical engineering touches on a wide range of application domains such as health care, workplace safety, the environment, the manufacturing sector and aeronautics. By doing your master's in mechanical engineering at ÉTS, you will learn to solve real-world industry issues, because the majority of our professors have worked in business and industry. Close to 60% of their research work is done in partnership with the professional community.
To stand out in your field, to further your career, to develop technology that will revolutionize an industry or change the world… all these are good reasons to enrol in the Master of Mechanical Engineering program at ÉTS!
In this master's program, you will come into contact with professors who design devices to reduce the incidence of spinal cord injury, create biofuels with specific properties, develop protective equipment for factory workers and seek to improve the aerodynamics of wind turbines in Nordic environments. These are all projects of great concern to both public and private organizations.
What will you learn in the Master’s program?
In this ÉTS graduate program, you can specialize in aeronautical design, mechanical manufacturing, the mechanics of buildings, health technologies, or in mechanical or manufacturing systems.
In addition, you will deepen your knowledge in the following areas:
- Aerodynamics of wind turbines;
- Thermofluids and energy;
- Finite element stress analysis;
- Aeronautical design;
- Shape-memory alloys;
- Intelligent systems;
- Composite materials;
- Smart functional materials;
- Polymers and plastics processing;
- Acoustics and ultrasound;
- Non-destructive testing, fracture mechanics and failure analysis;
- Advanced manufacturing.
You will also have access to highly specialized equipment, because ÉTS has more than 15 Chairs and research units in mechanical engineering. In addition, many researchers work closely with specialized health research centres such as the Centre de recherche du Centre hospitalier universitaire de Montréal (CRCHUM – the University of Montréal’s health care research centre), the research centre of the Sacré-Cœur de Montréal hospital (site in French) and the Sainte-Justine children's hospital university research centre.
What’s the Difference between the Project Profile and the Research Profile?
Our master's program in mechanical engineering includes two profiles: one with a thesis and the other with a project. The thesis profile is focused on research and leads to the degree of Master of Applied Sciences (M.A.Sc.). The project profile will allow you to specialize in a particular area of mechanical engineering and will lead to the degree of Master of Engineering (M. Eng.).
What Degrees Provide Admission to the Master’s in Mechanical Engineering?
Holders of an engineering diploma or a bachelor degree in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, automated production engineering, manufacturing engineering, industrial engineering or a related field may enrol in the Master of Mechanical Engineering.
Master's in mechanical engineering with thesis (research profile)
This profile is for you if you want to continue into doctoral studies or do research and development in industry.
The research project counts for 30 of the 45 credits of this program.
Master's in mechanical engineering with project (project profile)
The practical and theoretical courses in the project profile will help you deepen your knowledge and specialize in one of the many areas of mechanical engineering.
The program totals 45 credits, including 30 to 39 credits of courses plus 6 to 15 credits for the project.
