To Turn Nothing Into Something You Have To Believe In Anything








We've Re-Engineered for You

Welcome to Engineering at Alberta

We are living in unusual times and you are likely wondering what’s in store in terms of a university experience. Faculty and staff have been working diligently since we moved online in March to re-engineer our extraordinary student experience for the virtual world that is now our daily reality. Student learning and experience have always been our priority and that hasn’t changed. 



Welcome to Engineering at Alberta

It’s a new season and a new reality, but we will still be building the future – with you.



Interaction in Online Learning

You’re wondering what virtual learning will be like. It will be different in some ways, but much the same in others. Pierre explains.



We are in this together

Associate Professor Carlos Cruz has been in your shoes and knows how to make the most of the virtual learning experience.



What you need to know

There are a few things you want to become familiar with before starting as a student, and this year that doesn’t mean finding buildings or classrooms or the shortest distance between your classes. What it does mean is getting familiar with the technology – eClass, Zoom, and Google Meet. Your professors will be using a combination of these tools to connect with you. You’ll also want to stay up-to-date on information about the university’s response to COVID.
