MSc in Sustainable Design Engineering

The Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering offers a Master of Science in Sustainable Design Engineering program. The UPEI Master of Science in Sustainable Design Engineering (MSc-SDE) program aims to train graduates who have in-depth expertise in applying principles of sustainable design engineering to interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research challenges. The MSc-SDE degree program is research-intensive and requires the students to work on their thesis under the supervision of an FSDE faculty member. Additionally, students are required to complete at least two (2) graduate-level courses. The current research themes in the FSDE are design engineering, engineering education, mechatronics, agriculture, bioresources, energy, materials, manufacturing and biomedical design. Most of the current research projects involve collaborators in other faculties, and are defined, sponsored and completed in close collaboration with industry and government organizations.

PhD in Sustainable Design Engineering

Independent research is the major focus of the PhD program-SDE degree, and students will identify a research topic and conduct an extensive body of original research in their field, making a true contribution exemplifying the student’s depth of knowledge, creativity, innovation and proven ability to make significant scientific research contributions.
