Courses

The manufacturing program is designed to be completed in 8 academic semesters with an optional 16 months of Co-op work placement. The number of credits taken by students in manufacturing engineering in each year is approximately 40 credits. Students must complete 9 credits in Complementary Studies and 6 credits in Technical Electives.

In addition to the common first year Engineering courses, students in the Manufacturing program will take courses in Mechanical and Materials Engineering, Computer Engineering as well as specifically designed Manufacturing Engineering courses including Manufacturing Processes, Production Systems Management, and Industrial Automation. Each year the program features a design course which will prepare students for a final Capstone design project in year 4. This program has been designed to meet accreditation requirements by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.
