Machines to manufacture materials

Advanced material manufacturing

With a primary focus on materials, the program enables graduates to meet manufacturing challenges related to a broad range of mechanical, armour, energy, aeronautical, naval, thermal and biomedical systems and devices. This broad-based area of engineering holds career opportunities in almost every industrial sector, including high tech, aerospace, automotive, defence, energy, biomedical and consulting.

The program provides state-of-the-art education and cutting-edge research in materials, manufacturing processes, coatings, characterization and testing.

Established in 1983, the Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (OCIMAE) combines the research strengths of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Ottawa and the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Carleton University.
