When you are admitted to the Faculty of Engineering, you join a family of students who challenge and support one another to excel in their studies and become engaged in student groups and community involvement.
Our students garner academic, leadership and community service awards. Nine prestigious CD Howe Memorial Foundation Awards for the top first-year engineering students in Canada have been won by U of A engineering students.
Our Faculty has the most active student body on campus, offering numerous opportunities for involvement in student clubs, design projects and leadership. These clubs are considered an integral part of the student experience.
Engineers Without Borders use university problem solving skills and engineering knowledge to drive positive social change. In 2011, the University of Alberta Engineers Without Borders (EWB) student group earned the Greatest Dedication to Learning Award from the national EWB umbrella group for their comprehensive member learning strategy, School Outreach Program, and work on global engineering issues.
Our Faculty is home to about 50 varsity-level student athletes. The Dean’s office contributes financially to the athletic activities of engineering students through the Adopt-an-Athlete program.
