It is beneficial for engineers to have a firm understanding of machining principals and limitations. Students interested in getting involved with campus groups such as Blue Sky Solar Racing or U of T’s Formula Racing Team would greatly benefit from building their machining skills.

U of T Engineering students (including those on PEY), researchers and faculty have access to MIE’s Machine Shop for professional services as well as use of the shop’s equipment and facilities. Courses are offered by the Faculty to provide machining and welding training:

  • Basic Machining: machine shop safety, lathe, mill, drill press.
    Completion of this course required to gain access to the MIE’s Machine Shop facilities in MC78
  • Introduction to Welding: oxy-acetylene, manual arc & gas metal arc welding
