Canada’s aerospace industry is the 5th or 6th largest in the world being valued at approximately $20B/year and providing employment to tens of thousands of Canadians across the nation. It is an industrial success story with products that are recognized for innovation, safety and quality throughout the world. One of the key factors that will continue this success is a steady stream of engineering talent and connection with top researchers to continue to drive innovation in future products.
The Aerospace Engineering program at Windsor will be an optional stream within our existing Mechanical Engineering undergraduate program. The program will build upon the success of our existing offerings by continuing our practice of emphasizing physical lab experiences for our students and it will incorporate the latest innovations in teaching and laboratory experiences. As the program progresses connections to our Electrical and Computer and Industrial & Manufacturing Systems Engineering programs will be formed to ensure that graduates learn about avionics (aircraft electrical systems and instrumentation) as well as the planning and operation of complex manufacturing and logistical operations.
In addition, students will be strongly encouraged to take advantage of the existing Minor in Business which is offered by the Odette School of Business Administration to enable our graduates to learn about the financing and marketing aspects of large business sectors
