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.

Watch a video by Global National to learn more about about Carlos D. Gerardo, Edmond Cretu and MECH professor Robert Rohling’s breakthrough in ultrasound technology: The Innovators: UBC researchers behind new ultrasound advancement
Photo by Clare Kiernan At first glance, Carlos D. Gerardo, Edmond Cretu and Robert Rohling’s new polymer capacitive micro-machined ultrasound transducer (polyCMUT) looks like a computer chip, but it’s actually a series of microscopic drums built with a novel printing process. This innovation uses...
