|Description:||The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science is the only one in Canada offering a dedicated program in manufacturing engineering. The program provides graduates with the knowledge and skills required for work in all areas of advanced manufacturing, including product design, automation and control, and production. Developed in consultation with industry, the manufacturing engineering curriculum provides a solid grounding in the fundamentals of mathematics, computing and science, with significant content in engineering sciences and design. In addition to classroom lectures, students participate in tutorials, laboratories, computer simulations, field visits, independent research and design tasks, individual and group projects, as well as presentations to both technical and non-technical audiences. Complementary studies including liberal studies electives, collaborative leadership, economics, and ethics and law for professionals, promote a broader understanding of the needs of society and technology’s impact on it. Students gain technical expertise along with the understanding of business and humanities required for an integrated approach to advanced manufacturing.
The Engineering and Management combination programs meet the rapidly increasing need for engineers with the leadership skills to succeed in business and management. Students study the complete engineering program, and also gain critical management skills in key areas of business including accounting, finance, operations, human resources and marketing. Students in these programs take two semesters of business and management courses for 30 credit hours after successfully completing third year. The regular fourth year of the engineering program is then taken in year five of the program. The two semesters of business and management courses may be taken at other years in the program with permission.
