Mechanical Engineering Project A
Provides students with the opportunity to apply the skills developed over the previous three years to an open-ended engineering problem of their choice. Projects are supervised by a member of the academic staff and may be experimental, theoretical, computational or practical in nature. An important goal is to help students develop project and time-management skills, and the ability to communicate through the report and seminar.

A project based on knowledge acquired during the first three years of the program.
Students are responsible for:
- reviewing current literature,
- design of equipment/experiments/models,
- learning/developing new techniques, and
- implementing what they have learned to solve an engineering problem.
This course is part of a multi-term sequence. Both Part A and Part B must be completed to meet the requirements of the sequence. Part A and Part B must be completed in consecutive terms. Students must complete Part A before completing Part B. Students must complete the sequence within a twelve month period. If students complete Part A but are unable to complete Part B within the timeframe, they must re-enrol in Part A.
