International M.A.Sc. in Automotive Engineering/Laurea Magistrale in Automotive Engineering ,Dual degree program with Politecnico di Torino, Italy

Students accepted into the program will begin with one year of graduate study in Windsor taking courses and working on a research thesis that is defined and supported by FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) North America.
Students will then travel to the Politecnico di Torino to complete their Master’s degree with an additional year of study, and their thesis research with the support of Fiat.
The entire program is conducted in English.
The program starts in September and is typically completed over a two-year period.
While earning a Master of Applied Science (MASc) degree from the University of Windsor and a Laurea Magistrale degree from the Politecnico di Torino, students will receive solid professional training and the practical experience necessary to work in a competitive global environment—plus live and study in two wonderful countries and work with a large, multi-national automotive company
