Become an expert in smart systems
Thanks to your Master’s studies in automated manufacturing engineering at ÉTS, you’ll become a specialist in the design, integration and management of complex systems, no matter where they’re found – at home, at the hospital, in the factory or in business offices. You’ll be able to resolve problems related to the design of collaborative robots, develop algorithms that can analyze medical images, or build smart devices to optimize energy efficiency for homes or for cloud computing systems!
Overview of the Master in Automated Manufacturing Engineering
Since complex systems are found virtually everywhere, graduates can work in a multitude of sectors, such as health, transportation, the environment and aerospace, to name just a few.
In addition, most ÉTS faculty members have worked in industry before joining ÉTS. That means they can share with you a clear vision of industry issues. And since 60% of their research mandates are carried out in partnership with industry, you’ll be called upon to resolve real-world issues throughout your studies.
This Master’s program includes two concentrations: System integration and automation, and Intelligent systems. You can choose whichever best meets your plans!
Are you interested in standing out in the workplace? Hoping for a promotion or to create innovation in the areas of automated systems or artificial intelligence? Or do you want to devote yourself to research and development? Our master’s program will answer your career goals.
What will you study in the Master in Automated Manufacturing Engineering?
In this program, you will acquire advanced knowledge in intelligent systems or in systems integration and automation.
Concentration in systems integration and automation
In the systems integration and automation concentration, you will learn about issues related to the design of complex technological and information processing systems. You’ll study not only the processes that support them, but also the deployment and maintenance of these systems. You’ll learn not only to design the IT infrastructures that support computer aided engineering, but also to analyze them using the theoretical and procedural frameworks that you’ll be taught during your studies.
Concentration in intelligent systems
If you opt for the intelligent systems concentration, you will specialize in the study of the processing, analysis and interpretation of the data from systems that perceive, reason, learn and act to achieve specific objectives. The systems-oriented approach puts an emphasis on pattern recognition, because it’s central to both artificial and human intelligence. The courses in computer vision, machine learning, speech processing, biometrics, artificial neural networks and artificial intelligence offer many industrial applications.
On completion of your master's studies in automated manufacturing engineering, you will be able to:
- Determine the technology needs of a company;
- Define, justify, plan and carry out a project to implement an existing technology.
More specifically, you will acquire advanced knowledge in intelligent systems as well as in systems automation and integration in areas as varied as the following:
- Control and robotics;
- Digital businesses;
- Innovation management;
- Computer-aided engineering (CAE);
- Logistics operations;
- Artificial intelligence;
- Intelligent systems;
- Healthcare technologies;
- Computer vision;
Specialized equipment to develop practical applications
Throughout your master’s studies, you can count on state-of-the-art facilities in which to carry out your work: robotic cell, metrology equipment, subsonic wind tunnel, flight simulator, characterization of materials laboratory, milling centre, high-speed machining centre, vision and artificial intelligence laboratory with parallel computation servers, electro-erosion device, musculoskeletal system evaluation laboratory, intelligent life laboratory, etc.
What’s the Difference between the Project Profile and the Research Profile?
Our master's program in automated manufacturing engineering includes two profiles: one with thesis and the other with project. The thesis profile is focused on research and leads to the degree of Master of Applied Science (M.A.Sc.). As this profile is research-oriented, it will also give you access to doctoral studies. The project profile will allow you to specialize in a particular area of automated manufacturing engineering. It will lead to the degree of Master in Engineering (M.Eng.).
Master's Degree in Automated Manufacturing Engineering with Thesis (research profile)
The thesis-type program totals 45 credits and includes activities on electromechanical, manufacturing and information systems and their integration. This research-oriented profile allows you to focus on a specific problem in industrial production engineering.
30 of the program’s 45 credits are allocated to the research project.
Master's Degree in Automated Manufacturing Engineering with Project (project profile)
The project profile offers you the opportunity to deepen your knowledge, letting you specialize in a particular area of automated manufacturing.
The program totals 45 credits, including 6 to 15 credits for the application project and 30 to 39 credits for courses.
