Master of Applied Science
UBC Mechanical Engineering offers MEng, MASc, and PhD programs for people wishing to pursue advanced degrees. We have four research groups covering biomedical engineering, design and applied mechanics, mechatronics and manufacturing, and thermofluids. If interested, our graduate students may also pursue work experience through UBC Engineering’s co-op program.
