Jonathan MacPherson-Gray, Bachelor of Engineering, Engineering Systems & Computing. Sacred Heart Catholic High School, Newmarket, ON.

Bachelor of Engineering

Improve Our World through Design and Innovative Engineering Solutions

Design. Create. Solve. This is the foundation of U of G’s Bachelor of Engineering program. At the U of G you will collaborate and harmonize traditional engineering disciplines with current world needs. You will engage with approachable faculty, caring staff, and you will learn in innovative facilities that recently underwent a $50 million renovation. 

After first year, you will have already completed one major design project, and then you'll complete at least one major design project each year of your program. This hands-on design sequence gives you the competitive advantage: there's no better way to prepare you for the engineering workforce once you graduate.

You will enjoy a successful transition into first year with a multidisciplinary curriculum in your first semester. With over 40 minors to choose from, you can expand your studies beyond engineering, and develop real-world transferrable skills.

It will be you who improves the world, amplifies human capabilities and makes people's lives safer and better. You will explore current real world issues, you will design solutions and systems, and you will collaborate with your peers and communicate your ideas.

At Guelph, you will begin to design, create and solve engineering problems from day one.
