Leader in Engineering Education and Research

The Schulich School of Engineering is a leader in engineering education and research innovation. We draw on our combined strengths in teaching and research to offer students rich and diverse learning experiences, and create a dynamic research environment that encourages high-calibre research by world-class scholars.

Located in Calgary, the energy and engineering capital of Canada, the Schulich School of Engineering has close ties to the community and key industry partnerships that provide extensive opportunities for research and student internships. In fact, our engineering internship program is the largest of its kind in western Canada.

Leading the way in engineering education

 We are proud to be one of the top engineering schools in Canada. We have earned our reputation by focusing on four key areas:

  • Student experience
  • Research excellence
  • Infrastructure expansion and enhancement
  • Links to the community

We are also taking engineering education in new directions. In 2008 and 2010, we were ranked first in the country for integrating environmental and social sustainability into engineering curriculum.

Working to engage the whole person

Like student musician Luke Gagnon, the Schulich School of Engineering embraces the full spectrum of skills, talents and ideas – from the academic to the artistic.
