Design. Create. Solve. Repeat.

Apply to our Bachelor of Engineering program and get ready to improve the world by making people’s lives safer and better.

You want your engineering credentials to stand out to potential employers. U of G’s engineering curriculum can do just that. By combining engineering principles with practical, multi-disciplinary design courses, you’ll gain hands-on experience you’ll take beyond the classroom. You’ll build on the fundamentals of engineering while you also develop teamwork and presentation skills through the design courses. Take a look at some of the photos from the last Design Day, held in 2019 to see what we mean.

Major areas of study offered by U of G Engineering

Biological Engineering

Our interdisciplinary curriculum includes areas such as pharmaceutical and food manufacturing, bioinstrumentation, and biosensing and production of sustainable, bio-based materials.

Biomedical Engineering

Learn to fuse engineering design and problem solving to improve human health. Study anatomy, physiology and human kinetics, and courses in electronics, mechanics and computer science.  Areas of focus include bioinstrumentation; cellular, tissue and genetic engineering; biomaterials; and pharmaceuticals.

Computer Engineering

Computer science and electrical engineering are integrated to develop systems and solutions for the technological industry.  Areas of focus include artificial intelligence and robotics, software engineering, microsystems design and integration, wireless communications, and more.

Engineering Systems and Computing

The only program of its kind in Canada that focuses on designing integrated computer-based engineering systems. You’ll benefit from a mix of courses that cover software development, computer hardware design, mechanics and energy transfer, signal processing and optimization control.  Areas of focus include digital systems design, operating systems, signal processing, microcomputer interfacing, and more.

Environmental Engineering

Combine engineering and science principles as you design treatment processes and systems to identify, prevent and clean up pollution of our land, water and air. Gain globally-recognized skills and background to work in municipal, provincial and federal governments both locally and internationally, and in consulting, industry and research.  Choose to focus on air pollution control, soil mechanics, watershed system design, or water and wastewater treatment design.

Mechanical Engineering

Explore the design, manufacturing and maintenance of systems in mechanical engineering. Specialize in renewable and sustainable energy, mechatronics, biomechanics and prosthetic, and manufacturing; or choose electives which broaden your general mechanical engineering knowledge base.

Water Resources Engineering

The demand on Water Resources Engineers to develop solutions that are environmentally sustainable and economically viable have never been greater.  This major combines elements of civil engineering, environmental engineering, agriculture, planning and geography in a unique combination ideally suited to address society's concerns and needs surrounding water.  Areas of focus include water conservation, river restoration, storm water management, and meteorology and geology.


Co-op and Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is one of the U of G’s core mandates, so it is no surprise that every major within the Bachelor of Engineering is also offered with a co-op option. Check out some of the exciting positions our engineering students have worked at during their co-op terms.

If you’re considering co-op for yourself, we strongly recommend that you to select this option when you submit your application through, as it can be a bit trickier if you apply to co-op during your first year of study.
