For graduates students recommended for admission by a faculty member starting on January 15, 2024, the department of Mechanical Engineering has an accepted minimum level of funding, in the form of a stipend, for graduate students in the MASc and PhD programs.
Minimum guaranteed funding:
MASc: $17,500 per annum
PhD: $17,500 per annum
This minimum funding can come from various sources: mainly scholarships held by graduate students and funding from research supervisor's grants and contracts. Salaries related to positions as teaching assistants, demonstrators and markers are not part of the minimum guaranteed funding.
The actual level of funding, at or above these minimums depends on each research supervisor and will be determined, and agreed on, along with performance expectations, through a discussion between supervisor and graduate student before the start of the program of study.
