Manufacturing Engineering

Manufacturing Engineering

Program Overview

In the second, third and fourth years, students will follow a program in Manufacturing Engineering.

The mission of the MANF program is to provide engineers with the technical and managerial skills required for sought-after careers in the domain of advanced design and manufacturing.

1 COSC 222 is accepted in lieu of COSC 210 but requires other prerequisites.
2 Manufacturing Engineering students in the Aerospace option will take ENGR 310 instead of ENGR 320.
3 To be chosen from a list of Manufacturing Engineering elective courses provided by the School of Engineering.
4 In general, scientific geography courses, statistical courses, and studio/performance courses in fine arts, music, and theatre will not satisfy this requirement. Courses that teach language skills are not acceptable. See Complementary Studies Courses

Aerospace Option

Available to Manufacturing and Mechanical students, the Aerospace Option allows students interested in aerospace engineering to have courses focused in this area.

Application to the Aerospace Option is open to students who have completed the first or second year of the Bachelor of Applied Science program and are starting year 2 or year 3 in the next academic year specializing in Manufacturing or Mechanical Engineering.

Applications for admission must be submitted to the Engineering Advising Office by May 31st. Enrolment in this option is limited and admission will be competitive based on GPA.

Manufacturing Engineering students in the Aerospace option will take ENGR 310 instead of ENGR 320. In addition, the following three (3) elective courses are required for the Aerospace Option under Manufaturing Engineering:

  • ENGR 493 Introductory Aerodynamics and Aircraft Design
  • ENGR 449 Aircraft Structures
  • ENGR 496 Aerospace Materials and Manufacturing Process

Entry into and continuation in the Option require that the student remain in Good Standing. Upon successful completion of the option, the notation “Aerospace Option” will be added to the student’s transcript.
