The University of Windsor has 16,000 students – including more than 1,100 international students from around the world, who come to Windsor especially for its superb engineering, science and business programs,
all taught in the industrial centre of North America – one of the great economic engines on the planet! And with the university’s unique “Soft Landing Program”, all newcomers are offered plenty of support in preparing for and transitioning to student life in Canada.
Windsor is particularly famous as Canada’s automotive centre. The industry is one of Canada’s biggest employers, and the University of Windsor is one of the main resources for expertise and future labour. The University itself hosts a $750 million automotive research centre, which employs hundreds of students.
Windsor has more than 120 different undergraduate majors and minors – including some particularly unique degrees in the areas of Social Justice, Environmental Science, and Medicine. With renowned faculty and state-of-the-art facilities, Windsor supports students in pursuing independent, original scholarship with meaningful real-world applications.
