How We Got Here

Building on the University of Calgary’s Eyes High strategic direction, we at the Schulich School of Engineering began to define our own vision and goals. Using the work documented in the university’s Academic and Strategic Research Plans, and in our own tactical plans, we consulted with many groups through steering committee discussions, departmental presentations, faculty council deliberations and meetings with faculty, staff and students. Inspired by the thoughts, ideas and innovations of our entire school, together we built our plan.

The Way Forward

We will concentrate our energies on three main areas to become one of Canada’s top engineering schools. At the Schulich School we are:

  • Committed to student success
  • Fostering diversity
  • Research that makes a difference
