    In the technical Order of Species meaning of related, no, they are not.  Both are mammals, but Wombats are actually Marsupials; whereas Beavers are Placental in their mammal nature.  Check out these two Berkeley sites explaining Marsupial and Placental Mammilia!

    Wombats and beavers are not related, though they share some characteristics. They are both mammals, and have a similar skull and teeth. Their jaw especially resembles a beaver’s in both muscularity and structure. However, wombats have been compared to many other animals as well including bears, badgers, and groundhogs.
