Beyond the Classroom

Being a student isn't all projects and labs—UPEI's School of Sustainable Design Engineering offers students many opportunities to expand their creative horizons away from the classroom.

A continuing affiliation with Engineers Without Borders and its many national and international partners allows our students to examine ways to make the world a better place to live, work, and play. 

Our active Engineering Society plans and coordinates social and community events throughout the year.

When planning and resources permit, students may work on a Baja SAE team, to design and build a small off-road vehicle for competitive testing. Working as a true project team, students use the engineering process to design, create, and test a vehicle.
