Several openings are available for exceptional graduate and undergraduate students who are committed to high quality research and interested in mechatronics, sensing systems, and robotics.

A number of different projects are currently active. All projects are interdisciplinary in nature and require a broad range of knowledge and skills. Each project will emphasize the development of real-world systems, realized through working prototypes and experimental systems. It is expected that students, through their work, will be introduced to aspects of mechanical design, software engineering, embedded systems, sensor technologies, among other topics. Thus, motivated students with backgrounds in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Systems Engineering and Computer Science are sought. Programming knowledge (C, C++, Java, Python, Matlab, microcontrollers, etc.), familiarity with solid modeling CAD software (SolidWorks, NX, etc.), as well as hands-on skills are considered assets.

Interested persons should apply to the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering or the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering for Graduate Studies, and indicate their project interest on their personal information sheet. Candidates may also wish to indicate their interest by sending their CV and academic record to mnaish@uwo.ca. Unfortunately, due to the large amount of incoming mail regarding the potential opportunities for graduate students, I cannot respond to all expressions of interest. Students holding research scholarships should indicate this in their correspondence, as placements are limited by available funding.

Eligibility for all positions is dependent on acceptance into graduate studies by the Faculty of Graduate Studies and the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering or the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Western Ontario.
