PARTNERING WITH INDUSTRY, OUR CORPORATE CONNECTION
The Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering recognizes the benefit of working closely with business and industry professionals. This partnership guides the development of new curriculum and practices, identifies research opportunities, and ensures that Schulich graduates meet and exceed the expectations of the greater engineering community.
Our industry partners contribute to the academic and professional development of Schulich students through their sponsorship of the department's fourth-year design projects and by both providing internship opportunities and recruiting our graduates post program completion.
Design Project Sponsorship Opportunities
Every year, the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering in the Schulich School of Engineering at the University of Calgary puts the skills of the graduating class to the test with a final year design class. This integrated course investigates the preliminary and detailed design of mechanical systems through application of a systematic design process. This comprehensive class brings groups of students together into functional teams, each focussing the combined learning of their university careers into a single unique project.
To help prepare our graduates for the challenges of real world design, we are asking local organizations to support the development of our new engineers by submitting unique design projects.
If you would like to be a part of this exciting industrial outreach and education program, please contact David Anderson (firstname.lastname@example.org), Professor T. Freiheit (403-220-5918 / email@example.com,) or the Department Head of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering,Dr. Ron Hugo at (403-220-2283 / firstname.lastname@example.org).
