One of the most distinguished engineering programs in the world, Engineering Science attracts top students who are looking for an academic challenge.

This enriched program is widely regarded as an innovator in engineering education. During your first two years, you’ll be immersed in a fast-paced, high-level study of fundamental math, science, computing and the humanities, along with a breadth of engineering topics. This multidisciplinary foundation of skills and knowledge is followed by two years of accelerated, discipline-specific information. In the third and fourth years, you’ll choose one of eight majors.

As an Engineering Science student, you’ll join a close-knit community of academically talented, hard-working, creative and highly motivated individuals. Together, you will be part of one of the most intellectually stimulating learning environments available worldwide.

Upon graduation, about half of our students pursue graduate studies at internationally renowned universities, including schools like Caltech, Stanford, Harvard and MIT. Approximately five per cent pursue professional degrees in areas such as law and medicine. Many enter the workforce after graduation in a wide range of fields and are eligible to become licensed professional engineers. Our graduates are in high demand with employers, who find Engineering Science students confident in pursuing any challenge.
