Manufacturing stream in Mechanical Engineering

This area of study is open to all mechanical engineering students who are interested in pursuing a specialty in manufacturing. In the upper two years, students select two areas of academic focus, called streams. In the Manufacturing stream, students take courses in topics such as quality control, automated manufacturing, microfabrication, smart materials and manufacturing of sustainable materials.

Manufacturing, the transformation of materials and information (technology) into useful products for human beings, is the cornerstone to many economic activities. It is a versatile skill, with employment opportunities existing over a wide range of Canadian industry, including automotive, microelectronics, aeronautics, pharmaceutical, etc.

It is an exciting, creative field, where engineers get to design from cradle-to-grave. You must understand how an idea can be produced, and at what cost. This design may also include the manner the product should be disposed of or recycled. It is a truly international field, with demand around the world. Within Canada , average earnings of all employees in manufacturing are 22% higher than average earnings across all economic occupations in Canada.
