Graduate Courses

FALL COURSE ENROLMENT BEGINS AUGUST 2nd, 2017

The complete list of ALL ELITE (APS) graduate courses is here

Students who wish to enrol in 500-level courses are encouraged to do so as early as possible as seats are limited.

Fall 2017 1000-level graduate courses begin the week of September 11 unless otherwise indicated. 500-level courses, and 1000-level courses associated with a 400-level course, begins the week of September 4.

COURSE ADD/DROP DEADLINES:  2017 MIE course ADD and DROP dates are listed here.  For APS Summer courses, please follow deadline dates per ELITE's schedule as noted on the 'Admin. Info' section of each course.

For All Reading Course (MIE 2002H, 2003H, 2004, 2005H) and M.Eng. Project (MIE 8888Y):

     ► ADD and DROP dates are 3 days before the posted SGS deadline

     ►All students must submit a Course ADD/DROP form to the graduate office (signed by student & supervisor) as follows:

COURSE OFFERINGS LEGEND Courses are designated to be taught Annually, Biennially (every other year), or Occasionally. However, instructor availability will sometimes affect when a course is next offered.

Courses designated Research are mainly intended for research stream graduate students, to prepare them with a theoretical background. Therefore, these courses tend to be technical and thus are unlikely to be "introductory" or "overview" courses.

Fluid Mechanics

# Course Instructor Type Information
1
The course offers an introduction to turbomachinery, through the study of relevant thermodynamic concepts applied to turbomachines. The course is divided in two parts which discuss, respectively, non-compressible and compressible fluid machines. Theoretical principles are applied to a variety of turbomachines, including hydraulic pumps and turbines, centrifugal and axial compressors and fans, steam turbines, radial flow gas turbines. The emphasis is on the understanding of the thermo-fluid-dynamics involved with a systematic look at engineering approaches to turbomachine design.

Pre-requisites: Thermodynamics (MIE 210), Fluid Mechanics I (MIE 312)

Mechanics and Materials

# Course Instructor Type Information

The course will focus on the tribology of interacting solid surfaces in the dry or lightly lubricated state. Topics will include: surface microtopography, friction, wear, erosion, dry and marginally-lubricated contacts. Attention will also be paid to surface forces and issues related to tribology of micro-systems.
