Welding and joining processes are used to fabricate almost all manufactured products. The development of new automated manufacturing methods has made welding more important than ever before.
The courses in this specialization are intended to prepare Mechanical Engineering students to work in all areas related to welding and joining, including welding and joining processes (including robotic welding), welding metallurgy, and welding design and fabrication and quality control.
The specialization is the only one of its type in Canada and compares well with programs in Europe and the US. Students who select a defined set of 4th year technical elective courses in the Welding and Joining Specialization are awarded a Certificate of completion of the Welding and Joining Specialization.To enrol in this specialization, complete a Plan Modification form and submitted to Tanya Yoworski before your 4A ME term. Students registered in the Welding and Joining Specialization will be eligible to apply for the Canadian Welding Association Scholarship before October 1 of each year. Application forms may be obtained from the Student Awards and Financial Aid office.
