About our dean

Dean Bill Rosehart and the Schulich leadership team define success in three ways. They focus on student success, fostering diversity, and research that makes a difference.

About Bill Rosehart

For over 20 years, Bill Rosehart has been a passionate advocate for engineering education and research. On March 13, 2014, he was appointed dean of the Schulich School of Engineering after having served as interim dean for almost a year. He has also held the position of head of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Under his leadership, the Schulich School of Engineering has launched several new programs, including a combined degree with the Haskayne School of Business and energy engineering for students with approved technology diplomas. The school has welcomed record numbers of engineering students, dramatically increased student retention rates and supported faculty to secure more federal funding for high impact research than ever before.

During his tenure as dean, the Schulich School of Engineering opened the new Canadian Natural Resources Limited Engineering Complex, transforming some of the oldest buildings on campus into a cohesive home for the engineering.

He is registered as a Professional Engineer through APEGA. Rosehart was also a founding member of the Canadian Engineering Education Association (CEEA) and has been inducted as Fellow into the Canadian Academy of Engineering for his commitment to innovation in teaching and learning. He is a well-established researcher in the area of electrical energy engineering and has published over 100 scholarly articles, supervised or co-supervised 20 graduate students.

Rosehart’s strategic vision - Energizing Engineering Leadership - is to support student success, foster diversity in engineering and to promote research that makes a difference.
