Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year!

Where did the summer go? The new school year is upon us. It brings new hope and promise, new friends, and new knowledge.

Whether you’re new to the Faculty of Engineering or a returning student, we welcome you to this exciting new chapter in your academic careers!

There have been major changes at the Faculty of Engineering over the summer. To more effectively help you, we are now providing a one-stop location for all co-op and student services. All undergraduate student services and the engineering co-op are located on the second floor of the Donadeo Innovation Centre for Engineering, located between the Windsor Car Park and the Chemical and Materials Engineering Building. Administrative and professors offices for all departments are also now in the Donadeo Innovation Centre for Engineering.

What has not changed is our commitment to your success. Your educational experience remains our top priority. A U of A Faculty of Engineering education provides you with knowledge and skills that enables you to use your creativity and imagination to overcome challenges and solve problems. Looking to the future, as the next generation of engineers, you will have the capacity and responsibility to have an impact on society.

We encourage you to take full advantage of the many extra-curricular activities available to you. Investigate the Engineering Students’ Society and explore our student projects and clubs for experiences and friendships that will shape your future—the opportunities available to you during your university years will not come around often—how many chances will you have in life to help design and build a satellite?

There’s more than you may have imagined to student life – be sure you experience it fully.

The faculty and university offer invaluable services to help you excel in your studies. You have access to services like the Math and Applied Sciences Centre, and the Engineering Employment Centre, that will give you a distinct advantage in academics and in building your career.

We wish you all the very best in the coming year!
