The Bachelor of Engineering – Mechanical Systems Engineering (MSE) program, delivered at the honours level, is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) allowing graduates to become professional engineers after completing their mandatory work experience and writing a professional practice exam. The program integrates a rich blend of interdisciplinary topics covering mechanical, industrial and control engineering to enable graduates to design complex computer-controlled mechanical systems. Automated manufacturing systems, comprised of mechanical components, conveyors, electrical and pneumatic actuators, sensors and robots are examples of such mechanical systems.
The MSE program is delivered in a unique project-based curriculum model allowing students to learn by doing while developing strong skills in business methodologies, project management, environmental protection and interpersonal and team dynamics. As they work on increasingly complex projects, students progress from the technical fundamentals to advanced leading technologies in design, manufacturing and automation. This project work, combined with twelve months of paid co-op opportunities, thoroughly prepares MSE graduates for a successful career in a variety of engineering fields.
What You’ll Learn
- Apply university level mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering fundamentals to solve engineering problems involving mechanical systems.
- Apply critical thinking to identify, formulate, analyze, and solve complex engineering problems to reach substantiated conclusions using appropriate research.
- Conduct investigations relating to natural science, mechanical, manufacturing and control systems using methods that include appropriate research and experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to reach valid conclusions.
- Creatively transform ideas and concepts into a product definition that meets customer requirements and satisfies health and safety risks, applicable design and quality standards, economic, environmental, cultural and societal considerations.
- Design, simulate, or model optimum mechanical systems to realize products, manufacturing processes and control systems that conform to design specifications and functional requirements.
- Create, select, configure, extend and monitor appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering tools such as mechanical modeling, manufacturing and control simulation and information and data management systems considering the associated limitations.
- Apply concepts of human relations and organizational behaviour to establish and maintain effective relationships using leadership, interpersonal, group dynamics and conflict resolution skills across diverse teams and groups.
- Communicate complex engineering concepts within the profession and with society at large using oral, graphic and print media methods to produce effective reports, design documentation, and instructions.
- Adhere to professional, ethical, and legal codes of practice in compliance with industrial, labour and environmental legislation to protect the public and public interest.
- Integrate the concepts of sustainable design and development and environmental stewardship to prevent and address problems caused by engineering products, processes, and services considering the existence of uncertainties and interactions.
- Apply professional ethics, accountability and equity to demonstrate value, and respect of diversity across global, and societal contexts.
- Integrate engineering skills and knowledge with current business strategies to manage risk and provide cost-effective and economically sound solutions.
- Effectively manage enterprise resources through planning, organizing, staffing, directing, motivating, leading, monitoring and controlling.
- Address plans for lifelong learning and professional development to maintain and sustain engineering competence and to contribute to the advancement of knowledge.

I learned about WIST (Women in the Skilled Trades) Electrical Technician program through a high school career fair in 2018, "Jill of All Trades." There must have been 100 women there to introduce girls like me to the skilled trades. I was always interested in engineering, but I loved to take things apart and study them, which is why working as an electrical technician made so much sense. I didn't realize it then, but that day is when I decided to be an electrician. I couldn't have done it without the WIST program and Conestoga. I hope more girls and women will consider taking the leap.
