The Schulich School of Engineering offers a wide range of resources to support you in your studies. On this page, you’ll find links to on-campus services that can help you prepare for exams, find research opportunities, access computer support, and more.

Scholarships, awards and fees

Scholarships and awards

The University of Calgary offers over $12 million in scholarships and bursaries to new students and those continuing with their studies. Thanks to generous financial support from a wide range of donors the university can recognize outstanding students and their contributions to academic life on campus.

In 2005, Seymour Schulich donated $25 million to the university. This gift established the Schulich School of Engineering (formerly the Faculty of Engineering) and created 102 scholarships for engineering students.

Awards for undergraduate continuing students

These awards are available to students who meet the following criteria:

  • Completed their most recent fall/winter terms at the University of Calgary.
  • Completed one semester on exchange and one semester at the University of Calgary in the previous fall/winter terms.

For more information about awards for continuing students, please visit the Student Awards website.

Alberta Women's Science Network Scholarship

  • Are you a female student who is continuing full time undergraduate studies entering your third or fourth year of an undergraduate program in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (not traditionally a female dominated program) at an Alberta university, college, or technical institute?
  • Have you demonstrated leadership in the academic or community setting?

If so, you may be eligible to apply for the Alberta Women's Science Network Scholarship.

Program for Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE) Awards

The university believes qualified students should have the opportunity to experience research as an activity outside the classroom, as well as through course work. Undergraduate students planning to pursue graduate studies should have opportunities to learn how to write research proposals, seek research funding, undertake or participate in projects, learn discipline-specific skills and report research results.

PURE awards benefit students at any stage of their undergraduate program. Applications from students in the early stages of their program are strongly encouraged. For more information, visit the PURE Awards website.

External awards

These awards are not administered by the University of Calgary. External awards are available to both entering and continuing students and have varying deadlines.

For more information about external awards, visit the Student Awards website.

Fees and financial aid

Student fees

Fees are assessed on a per-term basis and include the following:

  • tuition
  • faculty specific assessments
  • athletic and recreation assessments
  • U Pass (transit pass)
  • student health and dental plan
  • mandatory course fees

The university does not mail invoices, receipts or statements of student accounts. You can view your student financial account through your online Student Centre .

For more information, visit the University of Calgary Finances website.

Financial Aid

Government student loans are available to full-time students who are Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents of Canada.

Undergraduate research

Teaching, learning and research are interconnected. Teaching draws from research. Learning includes research experience. Research generates new knowledge. That’s why we offer undergraduates opportunities to do research of their own, as well as participate in and learn from existing faculty research.

Program for Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE) Awards

The university believes qualified students should have the opportunity to experience research as an activity outside the classroom, as well as through course work. Undergraduate students planning to pursue graduate studies should have opportunities to learn how to write research proposals, seek research funding, undertake or participate in projects, learn discipline-specific skills and report research results.

PURE awards can benefit students at any stage of their undergraduate program. Applications from students in the early stages of their program are strongly encouraged. For more information, visit the PURE Awards website.

Markin Undergraduate Student Research Program in Health and Wellness (USRP)

This program introduces undergraduate students to a world of research that they may not have previously experienced. They get support and guidance to ensure they have a positive research experience and are encouraged to learn and discover all aspects of the research process. Visit the USRP website.

NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards

These awards are meant to stimulate interest in research in the natural sciences and engineering. They are also designed to encourage students to undertake graduate studies and pursue a research career in these fields. For more information, please visit the NSERC website.

Other research opportunities

Researchers at the University of Calgary are often looking for students to conduct research during the summer. There are several programs on campus that connect undergraduate students to research projects. You can also create your own research project. Some positions require you to find your own funding to help pay your salary, but internal funding sources can be found through the university and external funding is available from agencies, businesses or organizations outside the university. Visit the Research page.

Devon Academic Resource Centre

The Devon Academic Resource Centre is a space where Schulich students can congregate to study, interact, and access academic support resources.  It includes space for independent and small group study, a seminar room for seminars and workshops, and four tutorial rooms for one-on-one and small group tutorial assistance.

The Devon Academic Resource Centre (DARC) also offers developmental academic advising (i.e., one-on-one advising regarding academic skills and tackling challenges interfering with academics) through the Student Advisor (located in the Engineering Student Centre, SB 149).

Hours

The Devon Centre is open to students from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Location

The Devon Centre is located in Engineering, Block G, room 207 (ENG 207).

Please note the Learning Assistants meet with students in the tutorial rooms and seminar room in the Devon Centre; please consult the tutoring schedule (below) for details.

Learning assistants

Learning assistants are tutors who provide assistance with first- and second-year engineering core courses as well as selected Energy Engineering courses. Learning assistants work with students one-on-one or as a group. They answer questions on course content, provide practice problems and offer effective study strategies.

Tutorial assistance

Tutorial assistance is offered by the learning assistants. While tutorial assistance focuses on the core courses in first- and second-years, students in any year can get assistance. Assistance is now available on a drop in basis Monday-Friday, during days and selected evenings (see schedule below), until the last day of classes.  Assistance is also available during the final exam period; the schedule will be posted by the last day of classes.
