This unique, faculty-wide program integrates the study of complex living systems with engineering principles. Students learn how to apply these traditional principles and analysis to human health and medicine.
This minor allows you to develop some software engineering and coding skills while pursuing a non-software engineering major. Students learn about artificial intelligence, machine learning, the Internet of Things and more.
This joint program with the Haskayne School of Business helps students build entrepreneurial skills. They learn the principles and practices of developing new ventures and managing small and medium-sized companies.
This program teaches students the various aspects of the role of management in our institutions and society. It prepare graduates in other disciplines to practice their skills in a business environment.
Chemical engineers are on the front lines of significant advancements in a wide range of industries. They also play a key role in the growing markets for environmentally friendly products and processes. As a chemical engineer, you could design and oversee the processes involved in producing everything from refined petroleum products to pharmaceuticals.
Graduates can focus on:
Natural gas processing
Plastics and composite materials
Chemical engineering can also serve as a springboard into a career in biomedicine, environmental management, nuclear engineering and metallurgy.
An academic path that works
Our students follow a tried and true educational path. This includes a common first year, an internship opportunity after year three and an exciting design project to cap things off.
Common 1st year
Undergraduate students spend their first year learning about the broad world of engineering. From there, they focus their studies on a specific engineering discipline for the remainder of their degree.
Choose a major
In their second year of studies, undergraduate students begin taking courses in their major. These programs include: biomedical, electrical, civil, software, chemical, mechanical, geomatics, and sustainable systems engineering.
Between their third and fourth year, students can apply to do an internship. These paid work experiences range from 12 to 16 months. For students interested in international internships, one in 15 intern abroad.
During their fourth year of study, students undertake a team design project. Many work with an industry partner. Together, they develop well-researched and tested solutions to real-world challenges.
