Message from the Chair

Bussmann

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering (MIE) at the University of Toronto. We are a diverse group of faculty, staff and students dedicated not just to excellence in teaching, learning, and discovery, but to building a supportive and caring community.

Our undergraduate students come from all over, not just to get a great Mechanical or Industrial Engineering education from within the classroom, but to take advantage of myriad opportunities to engage beyond the classroom, to make the most of the years they're here with us. The same goes for our grad students, whether MEng students taking advanced courses, or MASc and PhD students working closely with one or more professors on research. It's amazing what our students accomplish while at the U of T, and what our alumni go on to achieve after graduation.

We are also very proud of our outstanding professors, many of whom have won awards for groundbreaking research, and for excellence in teaching. Finally, MIE is privileged to be supported by a wonderful group of administrative and technical staff.

Whether you're a prospective student looking for a great place to study and learn, or already a member of our community, I urge you to explore our website, to learn more about us.

With warm regards,

Markus Bussmann
