About Us

Let’s start at the beginning, where anything is possible...

We live in a world where everyone tends to honour the results and focus on the successes. The spotlight always shines on the accomplishments, when everything is said and done. And while all these things are undeniably important, we tend to shift our focus to the first step. To the place that uncovers the unknown. Where ideas and possibility drive us toward making the world a better place. That was our mindset as we approached the strategic planning process for Engineering at Alberta.
