November 6, 2015 — The manufacturing sector has long been a strategic driver of societal wealth creation, and thereby has affected improvements to standards of living and quality of life. Central to this sector are disruptive technologies that will drive forward dramatic changes in manufacturing over the next 10-20 years. The Emphasis in Advanced Manufacturing is sponsored by the Toronto Institute for Advanced Manufacturing, and was developed to expose Master of Engineering students to topics in advanced manufacturing.
This emphasis will be available to MEng students in four graduate units (Aerospace; Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry; Mechanical & Industrial Engineering and; Materials Science & Engineering) starting in the 2016/2017 academic year. MEng students can earn an Emphasis in Advanced Manufacturing by completing four courses, including at least one core course. The remaining three courses may be other core courses, or any elective course in either the Manufacturing Management stream or the Manufacturing Engineering stream.
Manufacturing Management courses are for students who seek to move into positions of leadership in the industry. Students will obtain fundamental knowledge and develop an understanding of the operational complexity of enterprises, innovation management, manufacturing and business process improvement/optimization, and integrated designs. Manufacturing Engineering courses focus on advanced and emerging manufacturing technologies and skills that can be deployed to increase the efficiency, productivity and profitability of the modern manufacturing industry.
