The Department of Mechanical, Automotive and Materials Engineering offers multi-faceted programs that allow you to 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. 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.
The University of Windsor is also one of only few institutions in Ontario to offer industrial engineering. 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. Our program will allow you to engineer how systems interact with one another.
Your education will begin with a broad base of fundamental science, mathematics and engineering knowledge in courses that are common to all programs. Our curriculum emphasizes analysis, synthesis and design. Fourth year undergraduate students are required to enroll in a Capstone design course. All teams are required to complete a semester-long project developed by a company or faculty. At UWindsor, co-op programs are offered in each option for those students who are interested in obtaining practical experience while obtaining their BASc Degree.
The Department of Mechanical, Automotive and Materials Engineering offers the following undergraduate programs:
- Mechanical Engineering (General)
- Industrial Engineering
- Integrated BASc-MASc
