About the Program

The Bachelor of Engineering - Mechanical Systems Engineering program (MSE) is a Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB)-accredited engineering program, allowing students to start on the path to becoming a professional engineer. It is geared to motivated individuals looking for challenging careers in the dynamic and growing areas of mechanical design, robotics, and advanced manufacturing. The MSE program is an innovative and challenging one, delivered using project-based curriculum. As students undertake four years of increasingly complex real-world projects, they will progress from engineering fundamentals to advanced, leading-edge technologies in design, manufacturing and automation.

Students also develop proficiency in business, project management, environmental and sustainable design as well as interpersonal and team dynamics. In addition, liberal studies breadth courses and generic skills complement the engineering curriculum.

A laptop computer meeting minimum specifications (Laptop pdf) is required for this program.

The opportunity exists for students who have completed a related advanced three-year diploma program to bridge or transfer into this program.

Pathways & Credit Transfer

Conestoga pathways enable students to build on their academic achievements in order to earn a degree or additional credential. Pathways are formed through agreements between Conestoga programs or partner institutions. View the transfer agreement opportunities for this program.

Often applicants have earned credits from another college or university that may allow a student to be granted advanced standing or exemption. Learn more about credit transfer opportunities at Conestoga.

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR)

Conestoga recognizes prior learning of skills, knowledge or competencies that have been acquired through employment, formal and informal education, non-formal learning or other life experiences. Prior learning must be measurable at the required academic level and meet Conestoga standards of achievement for current courses. Challenge exams and portfolio development are the primary methods of assessment. Other methods of assessment may be available depending upon the nature of the course objectives. Successful completion of the assessment results in an official course credit that will be recorded on the student's Conestoga transcript. PLAR cannot be used by registered Conestoga students for the clearance of academic deficiencies, to improve grades or to obtain admission into a program.

For more information on the PLAR process, please visit the testing website.
