Program Structure


Partner - Faculty of Engineering

For the past 85 years, the Faculty of Engineering has been at the forefront of research and innovation. With over 3,000 engineering students, over 130 teaching faculty, and eight engineering facilities on campus, the University of Alberta is one of the largest engineering schools in Canada. The Faculty of Engineering has educated outstanding engineers who have helped to build a successful province and a better world. The Faculty has Canada's only undergraduate program in petroleum engineering and has committed to developing world-class research in such areas as pulp and paper technology and process control and micro-electro-mechanical systems. Faculty of Engineering graduate programs are available through the following departments:

In Year One, students study the key areas of business: accounting, economics, finance, management science, marketing, strategy, and organizational behaviour. In Year Two the primary focus is on courses within the student's engineering discipline. Students select graduate-level engineering courses from the appropriate engineering department: chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental, materials, mining, mechanical, or petroleum engineering.

The number of engineering courses required depends on the specific discipline. Students enrolled in the combined program have the option of completing a summer internship in a related field. An engineering project and a business strategy course complete the program requirements.
