Department Welcome

Welcome to the Department of Automotive and Mechatronics Engineering.  We offer BEng and BEng and Management programs in Automotive and Mechatronics Engineering.  Our Automotive Engineering program is the only standalone automotive program that has been accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).  The Automotive Engineering program trains students to design all aspects of vehicles ranging from internal combustion engine powered vehicles to hybrid/electric vehicles.  Our Mechatronics Engineering program features an extensive hands-on project based learning approach that integrates knowledge from Mechanical, Electrical, Control, and Software Engineering.  All of our students have access to state-of-the-art laboratories for their education.    
At the graduate level we have MASc/MEng programs in Automotive and Mechanical Engineering and a PhD program in Mechanical Engineering offered in conjunction with the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering.  Our professors are world-class researchers.  In the area of automotive, our researchers are involved in projects in advanced propulsion systems, innovative design of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles, multidisciplinary vehicle systems design, and design of hybrid and electric vehicles with autonomous driving capabilities.  Our mechatronics faculty are involved in projects in autonomous and unmanned robotic systems, advanced sensing, Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), multidisciplinary mechatronics design, and machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
