U of T Engineering has the largest and most diverse robotics program in Canada, and together with a range of strategic industrial partners we are ushering in a future where robots will extend human capabilities and improve lives.
We are working with McEwen Mining to develop a drone-based system to enhance operations. The drones provide real-time footage and 3D maps of sites that would be difficult to explore by traditional methods.

Study Robotics at U of T Engineering
Graduate students can choose from a wide range of technical emphases, including Robotics & Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing. Engineering undergraduates can complement their studies with minors in Robotics & Mechatronics, Advanced Manufacturing and Nanoengineering. Engineering Science students can major in Robotics as well as Machine Intelligence — the first program of its kind in Canada.
Assembling a microrobot used to require a pair of needle-nosed tweezers, a microscope, steady hands and at least eight hours. But now U of T Engineering researchers have developed a method that requires only a 3D printer and 20 minutes.
In the lab of Professor Eric Diller (MIE), researchers create magnetized microrobots — the size of the head of a pin — that can travel through fluid-filled vessels and organs within the human body
