The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science is undergoing tremendous growth. The province's thriving industries in offshore oil, oceans, information and communication technologies, energy and mining sectors, among others, is creating a high demand for more engineers. Memorial's Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science plans to meet this demand by adding approximately 50 new faculty members by 2020, more than 300 graduate students and up to 500 additional undergraduates.
The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science offers co-operative undergraduate programs leading to the degree of Bachelor of Engineering, as well as graduate programs leading to degrees of Master of Engineering, Master of Applied Science, and Doctor of Philosophy.
Through teaching, research and outreach, the Faculty of Engineering plays a critical role in the economic development of the province, and graduates from our programs hold key positions in the major industrial developments in our province. A growing number of our recent graduates are leading emerging high-technology companies and hold important positions in national and international industries and governments, contributing to the university's global impact.
Research in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science has a strong focus on research and development opportunities associated with the general technological needs of our society.
