Dean's message

Energizing Engineering Leadership is our strategic vision. It guides our focus on student success, diversity and meaningful research. The result? We are transforming engineering at the University of Calgary.

Our strategic plan in action

Launching our strategic vision in 2015, Energizing Engineering Leadership, started a transformation. We reshaped our engineering complex into a modern facility. New labs, study spaces and classrooms are enhancing student experience and research success.

New programs for students

Our new Engineering Leadership Program helps students develop as young professionals. Our first class of Energy Engineering students graduated. And, we launched a combined business-engineering degree program in partnership with the Haskayne School of Business.

An inclusive culture

We have new and expanded diversity initiatives. Our outreach programs promote the inclusion of more women in engineering. We offer academic support to meet the needs of Indigenous students. And, we’re searching for a research chair in integrating indigenous knowledge into sustainable engineering.

Research that changes lives

Our faculty members are winning more and bigger research grants, awards and recognition. Funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada increased by 23 per cent to $9.55 million. This includes 97 unique partnership grants.

Schulich’s strength is its committed community of leaders, faculty, staff and students. Together, we know we will achieve our Energizing Engineering Leadership goals.
