Schulich Momentum

Enhancing Community, Expanding Impact 

Strategic Plan 2023-26

A message from the Schulich School of Engineering 

At the Schulich School of Engineering, it is incredible to see how far we have come since opening our doors in 1965. Fast forward to current day, and our students, alumni, staff and faculty members continue to innovate and have a meaningful and positive impact in our community.

It is with this momentum, anchored by our vision, mission and values, that we are proud to launch our new strategic plan: Schulich Momentum: Enhancing Community, Expanding Impact.

We have created something special at the Schulich School of Engineering and look forward to carrying this momentum forward.


As a community defined by energy, enterprise and excellence — both on our campus and beyond — we will be recognized for enhancing our global research impact and driving innovation, for expanding access to and inclusivity in engineering, for our contributions towards Truth and Reconciliation, and for enriching student success and experience.


Through pivotal research findings and by embracing student success and experience, the Schulich School of Engineering will build on Calgary’s strength as a national hub of engineering excellence, to expand the diversity, inclusivity and the impact of our profession, locally and globally.
