On the instruction of the Council of Ontario Universities, the Advisory Committee on Academic Planning in cooperation with the Committee of Ontario Deans of Engineering has conducted a planning assessment for doctoral work in mechanical engineering. This report presents as overview of the recommendations for each of the assessments conducted in various areas of doctoral work. Following this overview, emphasis is placed on the assessment of mechanical engineering in relation to the number and quality of students, an analysis of mechanical engineering education at the doctoral level, and general observations. The section concerning the number and quality of students reviews the supply of students, foreign students, employment opportunities for graduates, student concern about career opportunities, and quotas on the number of students. Analysis of mechanical engineering education at the doctoral level reviews course requirements, doctoral theses, thesis work outside the university, part-time studies, coverage of mechanical engineering at the graduate level, strengths and weaknesses of graduate programs, and industrial research institutions. General observations discuss the minimum size of a group, metallurgy/material science. faculty age distribution, staff mobility, financial support for graduate work, and an overview of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Ottawa and the Institute of Aerospace Studies at the University of Toronto.
