The Faculty

    The Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering is Canada’s premier engineering school and one of the best in the world. Since our founding in 1873, over 50,000 students have graduated from our programs. Our alumni excel globally as leaders, innovators and agents of change in every industry and setting.

    Our vibrant community includes more than 5,000 undergraduate students, 2,000 graduate students and 240 faculty members. Together, these remarkable individuals receive a staggering number of international and national awards each year for their excellence.

    World-renowned professors across our nine academic areas challenge our students to think beyond traditional approaches to engineering. Over a quarter of our community hails from outside of Canada, and the proportion of female students and faculty is among the highest in the country. This diversity brings new perspectives to the classroom, further enriching our collaborative learning environment.
