As a student at the Schulich School of Engineering, you will learn how to think creatively, solve problems and collaborate. Your well-rounded, hands-on learning experience will provide you with critical skills that go beyond engineering:
You will graduate with all the knowledge required to be successful in your chosen profession and the skills you need to be a leader.
At the Schulich School of Engineering, students get many opportunities to apply their knowledge and build their collaboration skills through special projects and competitions. Students can join teams like the University of Calgary Solar Car Team and compete in events, such as the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race. They have an opportunity to travel and learn how to work together as part of a multidisciplinary project team.
These extracurricular activities are supported by the Schulich Student Activities Fund, which provides over $500,000 each year for team competition and student travel.
The Engineering Internship Program at the Schulich School of Engineering gives students the opportunity to complement their technical skills and classroom knowledge with real job experience. The program is optional and offers paid work experience of 12 to 16 months between the third and fourth years of study.
These longer work placements mean students get more exposure to the daily demands of the profession and can benefit from workplace training in a specific field.
