Upon successful completion of the program, a graduate will:
Create sustainable engineering solutions for the built environment through applications of mathematical, scientific and fundamental engineering concepts, methods and techniques.
Apply appropriate knowledge and skills to identify, formulate, analyze, and solve complex engineering problems for the built environment.
Validate conclusions through investigations of complex engineering problems that include relevant experimentation, data collection, analysis, interpretation and synthesis.
Design sustainable building or infrastructures that meet regulatory and industry standards and considers, health and safety risks, economic, environmental, cultural and social impacts
Apply appropriate engineering techniques and tools to identify, formulate, analyze, and solve complex engineering problems in the built environment.
Perform as an effective member and leader on a team in multidisciplinary settings, displaying responsibility, critical thinking, integrity, and cultural and social sensitivity.
Communicate complex engineering concepts and solutions accurately and effectively using digital tools, written technical documents and oral presentations to a wide audience
Explain the role and responsibilities of the professional engineer in society, particularly the role of protection of the public and public interest.
Analyze the impact of the engineering activities in legal, economic, social, health, safety, and cultural contexts, with the concepts of sustainable design and environmental stewardship.
Demonstrate ethical conduct, accountability and equity, consistent with the requirement of the engineering profession.
Incorporate economics, business practices, entrepreneurship and project management into the practice of engineering given their limitations.
Develop self-leadership strategies to enhance personal competence and professional effectiveness in response to a rapidly changing world.
A co-op work program (three consecutive work terms, 420 hour each) ensures that work-integrated learning experiences are woven into the curriculum. This provides students with a contextual understanding of the industry and specific sectors they are training for, as well as recognition of the importance of hands-on experience.
