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.
It’s Carlos Menezes’ job to keep things moving. Thousands of things: tea kettles, barbeques, car parts, sleeping bags, garden gazebos. From his vantage at the centre of Canadian Tire’s vast supply chain, he tracks products from more than 2,000 suppliers worldwide. Shipped across oceans, onto trains to his four national distribution centres, onto trucks and into 500 Canadian Tire stores, where you lift them off the shelf in perfect condition and take them home.
Like any extraordinarily complex system, it benefits from precision engineering — and as vice-president of distribution and operations planning for Canadian Tire, U of T Engineering alumnus Menezes (IndE 9T3) has built his career on continuously fine-tuning it.
“If you think about industrial engineering happening wherever there’s people, systems and process, there’s always an opportunity to improve and to optimize,” he says
