On Friday March 3, 2017, twenty-one graduate and undergraduate students from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering made their way to Toronto to visit Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Canada Inc. and MDA.  The visit to MHICA included a presentation by MHI Canada Aerospace President, Mike McCarthy, and a tour of their facility.  The students also benefited from attending an MHI crash course on the fundamentals of aircraft assembly and enjoyed presentations by MHI engineers and other staff members on their career paths.  Completing the MHI visit, groups of undergraduate students had the opportunity to present their Capstone Projects to MHICA leadership.  Finally, the group finished the day by touring the robotics labs at MDA in Brampton where students and faculty got up close and personal with their state-of-the-art technology through demonstrations and interaction with MDA researchers.  Thank you Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Canada Aerospace and MDA!
