Our degree program options are designed to challenge and inspire you. With our world-renowned research faculty and excellent practical and co-op opportunities – not to mention our strong emphasis on business and entrepreneurial skills – a degree from our school will establish you to make a real impact in your chosen engineering field.

Mechatronic Systems Engineering Major

Students in the MSE major program have a choice: you can complete your degree via the four-year curriculum or reduce your workload through a flexible (five-year) curriculum option.  

Whichever route you take, the first half of your degree will train you in the essential tools required to design electrical and mechanical systems that can make decisions on their own.

In the second half of your degree, you’ll apply your skills to create innovative solutions to real-world problems. You’ll also undertake invaluable (and paid) co-op work experience and conclude your degree with a pioneering, independent Capstone Project.
