Mechanical Engineering (MASc) - Master of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering

   
Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Applied Science
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Mechanical Engineering
Description The thesis-based Master of Applied Science (M.A.Sc) in Mechanical Engineering is a traditional research-based degree. The program normally takes two years of full-time study, and includes a total of thirty credits, research under the supervision of a faculty member and a thesis. The Master of Applied Science is the recommended course of study for students who may be interested in eventually pursuing a Ph.D. Students taking their M.A.Sc in Mechanical Engineering can select one of four research areas: Design and Applied Mechanics, Mechatronics and Manufacturing, Thermofluids or Biomedical Engineering.* *The Department of Mechanical Engineering also offers a full Biomedical Engineering (BMEG) program. Students in the BMEG program will achieve a degree in Biomedical Engineering. With eight Research Chairs and almost every research faculty member holding a least one NSERC grant, we have one of the most active research programs in Canada and consistently produce industry and academic leaders. UBC is ranked in the World's Top 40 Universities by the Shanghai Jiao Tong University Institute of Higher Education and our Mechanical Engineering professors are recognized nationally and inter­nationally as leaders in their fields. We offer affordable, competitive tuition fees and extend a number of scholarships, awards, top-ups to external awards, entrance fellowships, Research Assistantships (RA's) and Teaching Assistantships (TA's) to our students.
