Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering Undergraduate Programmes

 

General Information

The tables below represent a typical course pattern when completing the B.Eng. Mechanical Engineering or the B.Eng. Aeronautical Engineering programme in a 4-year period. 

The department has a number of modern, well-equipped laboratories that permit students to supplement their theoretical knowledge with practical experience. These include major installations for the study of Heat Engines, Fluid Mechanics, Materials Science, and Engineering Computer-Aided Drawing, Computer-Aided Design and Manufacture, Rapid Prototyping, Dynamics, Heat Transfer, Robotics and Control Systems,  Biomechanics, and Jet Propulsion. The department operates a large teaching and research machine shop.

In addition, research facilities are available for faculty and graduate student study in the areas of combustion processes, turbomachinery, aerodynamics, fluid mechanics, aeroelasticity, structural dynamics, reciprocating engine performance, alternative fuels, composite materials, fatigue and fracture mechanics, tribology, structures, anemometry and robotics.

Note: The baccalaureate degree programmes in Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering are accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.
 

B.Eng. Mechanical Engineering

This is a 48 credit programme, including the core courses for Engineering, Athletics, and Second Language requirements.

Athletics and Language Requirements

LCF: Based on the result of a placement test, students will be registered in LCF100, LCF200, LCF300, or LCF400. Students will automatically be exempt from applicable lower level LCF courses once placed in the appropriate course. Students who attain a Second Official Language (SOL) proficiency level of at least BBB or higher on the Public Service Commission (PSC) Second Language Evaluation (SLE) will be exempt from LCF courses at RMC.
  • ATE101: Foundations of Fitness, Health and Sports
  • ATE301: Unarmed Combatives, Military Skills and Individual Sports
  • LCF100 : Compétence de base – partie I
  • LCF200 : Compétence de base – partie II
  • LCF300 : Compétence intermédiaire – partie I
  • LCF400 : Compétence intermédiaire - partie II
