Energy and Environment Undergraduate Specialization

The undergraduate specialization in Energy and the Environment is the first of its kind in Canada, and is one of the programs that has earned the Schulich School of Engineering the top ranking among engineering schools in Canada for sustainable education and research. Forty students are accepted into the specialization each year, after completing a successful first year in the common core engineering program.

The Energy and Environment Specialization provides education and training necessary for understanding, avoiding, minimizing and (effectively and efficiently) solving industrial challenges related to the impact of energy utilization on the environment. It prepares high-quality undergraduate students for careers in engineering that link energy and the environment.

The specialization is completed in parallel with a BSc degree in chemical, civil, electrical, geomatics or mechanical engineering. That is, students are trained in a traditional engineering discipline while obtaining interdisciplinary knowledge of direct and indirect environmental impacts of energy-related activities, including its exploration, generation, production, storage, transformation, transportation, transmission, usage and recovery.
