  • Beyond Engineering

    Engineering is a cornerstone of modern life. From the water we drink and the buildings we occupy, to the roads we drive on and cities we live in, to the full spectrum of computers and machines in our homes, hospitals and industriesengineering is involved in almost every tool, technique and system that supports daily life and creates prosperity. Engineering is also vital to the location and recovery of the many natural resources required for maintaining our modern way of life. Along the way, engineering is tackling the challenges of our crowded planet to make the world a better place. Careers in this profession are plentiful, as the worlds future depends on ambitious, caring and creative engineers.

    Top 10 reasons to study at the Schulich School of Engineering: it is located in the engineering capital of Canada. There are more

    engineers per capita in Calgary than in any other major Canadian city, and only Toronto has more corporate head offices.

    it has the largest internship program of its kind in Canada. Up to 80 percent of students take a 12- to 16-month paid internship after third year. They make contacts, get experience and offset the costs of education. international placements expand horizons even further.

    it is the only engineering school in Canada with a half million-dollar one-stop-shop to support extra-curricular student activities. Every year, $586,000 goes directly to students to offset the costs of studying abroad, or for travelling and competing with clubs and teams. Up to 75 percent of event costs can be covered by the fund.

    it has been ranked twice in a row as the number one engineering school in Canada for integrating environmental and social sustainability into engineering education. (corporateknights.com)

    hands-on learning methods encourage students to apply their knowledge and creativity throughout the undergraduate program.

    it offers the largest engineering entrance scholarships in Canada providing $30,000 to $50,000 to exceptional students in two categories: academic achievement and community service/entrepreneurial talent.

    Professors receive awards for teaching and research excellence.

    The Schulich School is home to one of the strongest biomedical engineering programs in Canada, joining the prestigious University of Calgary medical school with the Schulich School of Engineering, and the olympic legacy of the Faculty of Kinesiology.

    research opportunities are supported at the undergraduate level.

    it ranks well above the national average for female engineering students and faculty members and is a leader in women in engineering initiatives.

    DEGREE PROGRAMS

    ALL DEGREE PROGRAMS SHARE tHESE cOMMOn FEAtURES:

    A common core of first-year courses is taken by all students. At the end of the first year, students apply to begin one of eight programs in second year. Entrance into each program is competitive and based on marks in first year

    small laboratory classes, home rooms and student projects facilitate student-faculty interaction

    internship is taken after third year by most students

    all fourth-year students undertake a year-long design project

    opportunities for interdisciplinary specializations and complementary studies are encouraged and supported

  • What is the program of study like?

    The chemical engineering program acquaints students with the processing steps used to convert materials to more usable forms. There is also a strong emphasis on computer skills and many courses involve the application of computer modelling software commonly used in industry. Teams of students use their detailed knowledge to design a complete industrial process for a specific product such as polyethylene. These projects are usually industry oriented and prepare students for real-life industrial experience.

    Chemical engineering is the most broadly based of engineering disciplines and involves the design and operation of a variety of plants and processes. Chemical engineers are involved with the transformation of raw materials, whether by chemical reactions or physical separations, into products with added value. For example, chemical engineers design and oversee the

    processes involved in producing clothing fibres and dyes, leather, pharmaceuticals, refined petroleum products, plastics and even the semiconductor chips in computers. Especially important are emerging markets for environmentally friendly products and processes.
