Areas of Academic Study
In Engineering One, the first year of the engineering program, all students take a common program, which comprises courses in mathematics and basic science (physics and chemistry), as well as courses covering engineering fundamentals common to each of the majors. The engineering courses in Engineering One introduce students to engineering problem-solving, analysis, design, communication and teamwork. They will develop an understanding of the specialties, as well as the interdisciplinary nature of engineering practice.
The major programs of Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Process Engineering, and Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering are offered in academic term 3 through 8. The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science also offers an Oil and Gas Engineering option beginning in academic term 6, which provides students in any discipline with a background in issues related to the offshore oil and gas industry.
