Mechanical, Automotive and Materials Engineering
Mechanical engineers are responsible for the design, analysis, construction, maintenance and operation of machines and systems in a number of industry sectors, such as automotive, aerospace, power generation, manufacturing, steel and pulp and paper. Mechanical engineers commonly go beyond the limits of purely mechanical work and are found at all levels of management in private industry and the public sector. Our graduates acquire advanced knowledge and critical research skills and many are employed by industry, consultancies, governments and research institutions.
Industrial engineers answer the needs of organizations to operate efficiently and cost effectively. As an industrial engineer, you may use intelligent processes to streamline production systems or design flexible manufacturing approaches using a wide range of knowledge, including operations research, manufacturing sciences and enterprise resources planning/integration.
Rigorous, Enriching Programs
The Department of Mechanical, Automotive and Materials Engineering offers multi-faceted programs where you tackle real-world problems with local industry while gaining hands-on experience.
The field of Mechanical Engineering includes two broad areas of study. The first involves heat and power and is referred to as thermofluids. The second involves the study of solid mechanics, which includes deigning mechanical parts, determining the forces on those parts during operation and analyzing their performance as part of larger machines and systems.
The University of Windsor is also one of only few institutions in Ontario to offer industrial engineering. Your education will begin with a broad base of fundamental sciences, mathematics and engineering knowledge in courses that are common to all programs. Our program will allow you to engineer how systems interact with one another.
