Welcome to the Schulich School of Engineering.

As you take the first steps towards a fulfilling career in engineering, we want you to know we are proud of everything you have accomplished to be here. We are here to help ensure your future success.

This is going to be an exciting year. You will be the first students to benefit from our new Canadian Natural Resources Limited Engineering Complex. We designed this building to meet your needs and to help you become the best engineers possible. Renovations will be continuing through the year, but we hope you enjoy being the first to learn in this amazing new home for engineering.

Your success as students is at the core of everything we do. We want every one of you to complete your degree and embark on a career where they can make a difference. We also know sometimes it’s hard to succeed on your own. Please don’t hesitate to ask for help – ever. Take advantage of the free tutoring available at the Devon Academic Resource Centre. It is a great place to study, to participate in workshops and to access academic assistance. If you have any questions about your courses or program, need to talk to someone about preparing for your upcoming exams or seek guidance on application deadlines, reach out the Engineering Student Centre for advice. Our knowledgeable staff are ready to guide you.  

Your degree is also a time to prepare for your future careers, and our Engineering Career Centre is here to help. They can tell you more about career supports we have available, can describe how to apply for our one-year paid internships in your third year, and can help you seek out the experiences an opportunities to build your career from the ground up.

I also urge you to make the most of your time with us. Schulich offers some of the most engaging co-curricular opportunities at the University of Calgary. Joining a team or a club is a great way to enhance your educational experience and to make memories that last a lifetime. It is also an excellent way to demonstrate some of your skills and engineering experience to future employers.

The most important thing is that you are part of a community and that means that you have a responsibility towards your fellow students and others in the school. Take care of those who might need help and watch out for each other – you will be building relationships for life here.

All the best, this year and in the years ahead. And congratulations. You are on the road to becoming a Schulich Engineer.
