Departments

Engineering is a diverse profession. We offer a wide range of topics to study, arranged in five departments.

The Department of Biomedical Engineering studies how to use engineering and science to solve medical problems.

The Department of Chemical & Materials Engineering connects chemistry and materials science to the real world. 

The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering and School of Mining & Petroleum Engineering looks at the study of energy and natural resources, and how we plan and build the world around us.

The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering looks at the design and development of computer hardware and software, electrical and electronic systems, and using physics to solve engineering problems.

Mechanical Engineering tackles the research, design, and development of machines, tools, and mechanical devices, from traditional manufacturing to nanotechnology.


We are also home to the David and Joan Lynch School of Engineering Safety and Risk Management, the only integrated Engineering Safety and Risk Management (ESRM) program of its kind in Canada.
