At the Schulich School of Engineering we are developing resources that enrich the student experience, including a new building that will incorporate innovative features to promote professional development and learning. With your support, we can continue to build on these initiatives:

Upgrading and Expanding Engineering Facilities

The new Canadian Natural Resources Limited Engineering Complex, which opened in 2016, will promote diverse learning opportunities that undergraduate and graduate students will thrive on. It will include new computer labs for hands-on learning and student spaces to fuel curricular and co-curricular student experiences vital to the development of leadership and team-building skills. New research spaces consolidate work across the engineering complex and promote greater collaboration among researchers. The new facilities will grow Schulich’s reputation internationally as a centre of excellence for collaborative teaching, learning and engineering research. To learn more, contact us.

Schulich School of Engineering Student Success Impact Fund

Our goal is to become a leader in engineering education and research innovation. We have created an impact fund that will allow us to support student learning opportunities made rich by research and hands-on experiences. By supporting the Schulich School of Engineering Student Success Impact Fund, you will directly improve the student experience and help students succeed through supporting student space upgrades, awards, and other student experiential learning opportunities such as participation in field trips and attendance at conferences. To learn more, contact us.

Energy Engineering Program Entrance Scholarships

Our Energy Engineering program is innovative and the first of its kind in Canada. It is the perfect combination of technical and practical engineering skills that will equip graduates to tackle Alberta’s complex energy sector challenges. Energy Engineering builds on students’ engineering technology backgrounds from approved polytechnic institute programs to further their development with an engineering degree program. Schulich’s specially developed curriculum provides the engineering training needed to complete a Bachelor of Science in Energy Engineering in as little as two years. Our goal is to provide a $10,000 entrance scholarship to every student, enabling them to complete an intense 24-month program. To learn more, contact us.

Safety and Risk Management

Engineering leaders know that safety is paramount. Without it, major projects such as bridges, buildings or dams could fail. By introducing safety and risk management into the curriculum, the Schulich School of Engineering is ensuring our graduates become safety leaders – protecting all of those who benefit from their work. Our industry partners also tell us that engineers graduating with solid project management skills are highly sought-after. Best practices and tools used in the construction industry today that improve productivity, project planning, risk management and sustainability were developed here at Schulich. We’re working to incorporate this expertise into our learning programs so students and graduates can manage major projects safely and efficiently. To learn more, contact us.

Engineering and Entrepreneurship

When engineers’ ideas are combined with entrepreneurial skills, solutions to great challenges emerge faster and in more applicable ways. With that idea in mind, the Schulich School of Engineering launched a new Entrepreneurial Capstone Initiative focused on engineers. This program helps students sharpen their skills in idea generation, business planning and product development. To learn more, contact us.

Building Project Management Capacity

As projects have steadily become larger, more complex, and of longer duration the challenge presented to senior executives has never been greater. By developing elaborate, integrated and innovative approaches in capturing current and emerging project management challenges, a team of engineering scholars will provide valuable insights into current industry trends; analysis of current industry practices and introductions of some value-improving practices. This team will also equip the next generation of project managers with the skills and capabilities to develop elaborate, integrated and innovative approaches in capturing current and emerging project management challenges. As a result, more students will benefit with having access to valuable insights into current industry trends and being exposed to real world business experiences with a focus on engineering project management. 

The Centre of Project Management Excellence would like to build capacity as this is a field of great importance to the Schulich School of Engineering. To learn more, contact us. To learn more, contact us.

Engineering Teaching and Learning

Excellence in teaching and learning demands research informed practice. We aim to build capacity in the area of engineering teaching and learning to execute vital, tangible leaps in the way future engineers are taught and learn. No other engineering school in Canada is actively engaged in engineering teaching and learning to this degree. Attracting talent to help advance engineering teaching and learning at the Schulich School of Engineering would make us leaders in this field, allowing us to further our ability to attract the best and brightest students who will eventually become leaders in research and industry.

Having the right team in place will ensure high-quality, expert teaching, and undergraduate and graduate research through the creation of a collaborative team of researchers, learners and collaborators focused on bringing the best in teaching and learning innovation to this campus.
