Description:In the last decade, it has become clear that companies must reinvent their advanced manufacturing capabilities to remain globally competitive. There is a growing need across multiple industries for engineers with the technical skills and expertise to research, develop, test and optimize these next-generation manufacturing solutions. This is a rapidly evolving field, and companies are challenged to find engineers who have the sector-relevant cross-disciplinary technical expertise to develop innovative solutions.

The Master of Engineering Leadership (MEL) in Advanced Materials Manufacturing is an intensive one-year degree program for engineers who want to advance their careers in the automotive, aerospace and manufacturing sectors. The project-based curriculum covers all stages of the industry value chain and incorporates advanced simulation tools and case studies. You will work in world-class facilities, including the Advanced Materials and Process Engineering Laboratory – a multidisciplinary research centre where engineers, scientists and health scientists collaborate – and the Centre for Metallurgical Process Engineering, an internationally recognized interdisciplinary research centre.

While 60 per cent of your classes will focus on your technical specialization, the remaining 40 per cent are leadership development courses that will enhance your business, communication and people skills. Delivery of the management and leadership courses are in partnership with UBC's Sauder School of Business.

The MEL in Advanced Materials Manufacturing degree was developed in close collaboration with industry partners, who told us they need to hire leaders with cross-functional technical and business skills to develop innovative solutions, manage teams and direct projects.

The MEL in Advanced Materials Manufacturing degree is a unique graduate program that empowers you to develop the sector-relevant cross-disciplinary technical skills in demand by top employers. The combination of technical expertise and leadership development makes the MEL in Advanced Materials Manufacturing program unique and highly relevant in today’s business environment.

To complement your academic studies, professional development workshops, delivered by industry leaders, are offered throughout the year-long program. These extra-curricular sessions cover a range of topics such as:
- leadership fundamentals
- giving and receiving feedback
- learning how to deliver a successful pitch
- effective presenting

The workshops also provide opportunities to network with professionals from a wide range of industries, UBC faculty and students in the MEL and MHLP programs.
