The graduate experience at the Schulich School of Engineering is enhanced by our location in Calgary, the engineering capital of Canada. Our school has strong ties to industry, which provides a wide range of opportunities for multidisciplinary work, both in traditional fields such as petroleum, mechanical, software and transportation, and in groundbreaking areas like biomedical and environmental engineering.
Calgary is home to over one million people. It’s also Canada’s energy capital and has the second highest number of corporate head offices in the country. The city is situated on the confluence of two rivers, has numerous walking and cycling trails, and is a vibrant, safe and clean multicultural urban center with an entrepreneurial spirit. It has been ranked the world’s fifth most liveable city by the Economist Intelligent Unit (EIU) Global Liveability Report of 2013.
