Study Advanced Manufacturing at U of T Engineering
Our Master of Engineering students can choose from a wide range of technical emphases including Advanced Manufacturing, while all engineering graduate students have the option of pursuing a Robotics & Mechatronics emphasis. Undergraduates in the Engineering Science program can major in Robotics, while students in our core engineering disciplines can pursue minors in Advanced Manufacturing and Robotics.
Graphene is a paradox: it is the thinnest material known to science, yet also one of the strongest. Now, research from U of T Engineering shows that graphene is also highly resistant to fatigue — able to withstand more than a billion cycles of high stress before it breaks.
Graphene resembles a sheet of interlocking hexagonal rings, similar to the pattern you might see in bathroom flooring tiles
