Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering

A powerful shared vision of regional and international partners resulted in the development of the UPEI Sustainable Design Engineering program – a unique program focused of delivering real-world interactions, collaborations, and solutions.

In March, the University Senate had to make the difficult decision to postpone the May Convocation ceremonies due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are all disappointed that we are unable to celebrate this milestone in person right now, but we are excited to recognize the Class of 2020 in other ways!

View this message from the Dean of Sustainable Design Engineering and the interim Dean of Graduate Studies to the Class of 2020.

Quite simply, it is a program that has the ability to enable both our students and our communities to reach their full potential.

Endorsed by the UPEI Senate, the UPEI Board of Governors, the Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission (the quality assurance body for higher learning within Canada’s Maritime provinces), the Government of Canada (ACOA), the Government of Prince Edward Island, and expert external reviewers, the UPEI Sustainable Design Engineering program provides students with unprecedented opportunities to gain their Bachelor of Science (Sustainable Design Engineering) via a client-focused, project-based model delivered in an intimate learning environment that is hallmarked by mentoring and collaboration with faculty, industry, and community organizations.
