MINOR IN ADVANCED MANUFACTURING (AEMINADVM)

Manufacturing is the most intensive research and development economic sector in Canada, accounting for 75 per cent of all private sector research expenditures. The courses in this minor draw on an array of engineering skills, leadership and multi-disciplinary knowledge, all of which can be leveraged in a wide range of sectors, including biomedical, automotive, aviation, aerospace, energy and others. The minor provides a strong foundation in advanced manufacturing which can lead to a career in industry or graduate degrees.

The requirements for the Minor in Advanced Manufacturing in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering are the successful completion of the following courses:

  1. Choose one (1) of the following foundational courses:
    1. CHE324H1: Process Design
    2. MIE221H1: Manufacturing Engineering
    3. MIE304H1: Introduction to Quality Control
    4. MIE364H1: Methods of Quality Control and Improvement
    5. MSE351H1: Design and Simulation of Materials Processes
  2. MIE519H1: Advanced Manufacturing Technologies
  3. Choose one of the following business management/leadership courses:
    1. TEP343H1: Engineering Leadership
    2. TEP442H1: Cognitive and Psychological Foundations of Effective Leadership
    3. CHE488H1/CIV488H1/ECE488H1/MSE488H1/MIE488H1: Entrepreneurship and Business for Engineers
    4. JRE420H1: People Management and Organizational Behaviour
  4. Three (3) other electives from the list of designated courses below or departmental thesis and design courses subject to the following constraints:
    1. Of the 6 half year courses required for the minor, only one half year course can be a core course in the student’s degree program, including courses listed in requirement #1.
    2. Of the 3 elective courses, at least 2 must be from the Advanced category.
    3. Either a Thesis or Design course can count for up to two half year Advanced elective courses towards the 4 elective courses IF the Thesis or Design course is strongly related to advanced manufacturing. This requires approval by the Advanced Manufacturing Minor Director.
    4. Some Departments may require students select their electives from a pre-approved subset. Please contact your Departmental Advisor for details.
