Welcome to Engineering

The faculty and staff of Engineering are happy to welcome our first and second year students to campus for the first time and to welcome all faculty, staff and students back to campus after such a long time.

Safety is a key consideration for the engineering profession and for our faculty. The onus on us as individuals to make responsible decisions for ourselves and those around us.

In Memoriam, Fred Otto, Professor Emeritus, Dean of Engineering (1985-1994)

It is with a heavy heart that we pay tribute to Fred Otto, former Dean of Engineering. Fred was an outstanding leader in our industry, community, and beyond. A kind and generous man who always put the spotlight on others around him, making everyone feel unique and empowered. Fred had a significant impact on the future of the Faculty of Engineering, developing the first environmentally focused chemical engineering course and expanding the Co-Op program. Over the past three decades, generations of engineers were inspired and influenced by their DiscoverE experience, a program established under Fred's leadership to provide fun, interactive engineering experiences to youth. In honour of. Fred, we invite you to make a donation to the fund established by his family, the Fred and Helen Otto DiscoverE Endowment, in his memory. 




In Engineering, We Wear Masks.

All students, staff and faculty are encouraged to wear a non-medical face mask in all public indoor areas on campus. There are only a few exceptions.

COVID-19 is airborne and spreads when an infected person breathes out droplets and very small particles that contain the virus. These droplets and particles travel through the air and can be breathed in by other people or land on their eyes, noses, or mouths. Wearing a mask helps reduce the number of droplets/particles released into the air, helping to lower the risk of infection.

By wearing a mask, we help protect those vulnerable people in our communities. There are people on our campus who may not be able to be vaccinated, who have children under the age of 12, who are immunocompromised, or live with others who are immunocompromised.



Feeling Unwell? Stay Home.

You may be feeling pressure to get to class, meet deadlines, contribute to a group project, BUT, coming to campus when you are not well means there is a chance that more people will get sick. And nobody wants that. There is a university procedure to follow when you are feeling sick – start here.

If you are just a ‘little bit’ sick with a cold or cough you may still be able to participate virtually so you don’t have to miss a lecture or a meeting with your team.

Accommodations are available if you are sick and shouldn’t be on campus.
