Academic Program

In addition to fundamental science, engineering science, and mathematics courses, students develop skills in engineering design, communication, analysis, project management, professional ethics and more.

The School of Sustainable Design Engineering at UPEI recognizes the integrating nature of engineers in society and the need for a broad and balanced education. Our program follows current trends in engineering education and focuses on student outcomes. Students are exposed to broad knowledge and skills in engineering science, natural science, mathematics, and complementary studies in concert with an applied project-based design stream simulating the engineering profession. Students entering the UPEI Engineering program will be actively engaged in the profession of engineering from day one.

The program is delivered in a two-plus-two orientation where students must first complete a two-year foundational program (engineering diploma) before proceeding into the upper class (degree years three and four). Students who successfully complete the diploma may choose to continue their Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Design Engineering at UPEI, provided they meet all admission criteria.
