50th Anniversary Celebration

Please save the date and make plans to attend and celebrate with us!

In 2019 the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science will celebrate 50 years of engineering education in the province.

The celebration will take place on Aug. 9-10, 2019 at the new Signal Hill campus, 100 Signal Hill Road and at the St. John's campus in the S.J. Carew (Engineering) Building, St. John's, N.L.

Our history

In 1969, our founding Dean, Dr. Angus Bruneau, announced a new full engineering degree program at Memorial. The first class of students entered a year of general studies in the Fall of 1968 and then began the new engineering program in the Fall of 1969. The first engineering class began, along with the first offering of a master of engineering degree in ocean engineering. In 1974, Memorial’s first class of 76 students graduated with a degree of bachelor of engineering in electrical, mechanical or civil engineering.


As part of the 50th Anniversary Celebrations, gthe planning committee is hoping to create a monument to be placed outside the S.J. Carew (Engineering) Building.
