ADMI MEng in Design and Manufacturing


The ADMI vision is to create a new generation of Canadian design and manufacturing engineers with the ability and mindset to propel Ontario Industry into a world leadership position. The collective resources of the partner universities and industry are leveraged to provide participants with access to an integrated program of world-class technology, expertise and experience, leading academic training, together with innovative technology applications, experiences and best business practices from some of Canada's leading companies.


Students enrol in the university of their choice and receive their Masters degree from the same university after completing nine courses. Each graduate course is presented in two 4-day modules (Thursday to Sunday) separated by a four to six week period. The format and content of the presentation materials is unique, relevant and maintained at a very high standard. Some courses are being modified to run in a compressed format with two 2-day modules (Friday to Saturday).
