Faculty of Engineering departments

The Faculty of Engineering is made up of five departments:

Department of Chemical Engineering

In the Department of Chemical Engineering, you'll learn how to transform raw materials into useful products while learning how to protect environment, manage resources, and meet strict health, safety and environmental standards. You may study specialized subjects within the technical elective stream such as, biomedical engineering, pulp and paper, nanotechnology and energy conversion.

Department of Civil Engineering

From the water we drink to the roads and bridges we travel on to the buildings we work and live in, the Department of Civil Engineering trains civil engineers to plan design, operate and maintain all aspects of the built and natural environment. Explore areas of the department including, construction, water & environmental, geotechnical, materials, structural and transportation.

Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering

Are you fascinated by technology and how it has improved our lives? Our Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering will help turn your passion into a successful career. Study alternative energy sources, self-driving cars and thought-controlled prosthetic limbs.

Department of Geodesy & Geomatics Engineering

Students and faculty members in the Department of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering have made important international contributions in everything from satellite positioning and earthquake prediction, through mapping and remote sensing, engineering surveys, geographic information systems and right on into land administration and ocean mapping.

Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers find themselves in fields such as aerospace, energy, manufacturing, machinery and transportation. The Department of Mechanical Engineering trains engineers to provide important contributions to the advancement of the environmental and medical sectors that aim to improve the quality of life for society.
