Engineering Workshop

Engineering Workshop aims to provide an opportunity for high school students to experience the different disciplines of engineering, through learning hands-on in labs structured to resemble undergraduate laboratories as well as through presentations from engineering professors about their research. The event will include four lab sessions and four lectures, each focusing on one of the four departments in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Alberta:

● Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
● Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering
● Department of Civil Engineering, School of Mining and Petroleum Engineering
● Department of Mechanical Engineering

The event will take place Saturday, March 24th to Sunday, March 25th, 9:00 – 4:00PM hosting 80 high school students.

Time of the event is tentative and subject to change.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact

Registration Open!

Student Registration - March 24 - 25, 2018

Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers find ingenious ways to create and optimize systems of moving parts, from rocket ships to pump systems. 

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a diverse educational experience with a focus on traditional areas such as manufacturing and design, as well as in emerging areas such as biomedical engineering, emissions reduction technology, nanotechnology, interfacial phenomena, and sustainable energy. Our department is home to more than 700 undergraduate students, 250 graduate students and more than 40 professors.

Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering

Materials engineers analyze and develop products at the microscopic level to create materials that are lighter, stronger, and more durable. They work to make existing technologies even better through optimizing materials. Chemical Engineers use ingenuity in chemical processing to create substances and materials that we enjoy, use, and even eat! 

The Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering attracts some of the best and brightest people from around the world. The department’s 52 professors are renowned researchers and award-winning teachers who are educating 645 undergraduate and 273 graduate students.

Department of Civil Engineering & School of Mining and Petroleum Engineering

Civil engineers impact the way we live through their knowledge and advancements in structural technology. Their work is present in buildings, bridges and roads everywhere across the world. Mining and Petroleum engineers create innovative ways to use the resources of the Earth effectively and sustainably. In this workshop, you will learn the ways resources can be extracted and refined.

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the School of Mining and Petroleum Engineering offer both undergraduate and graduate students some of the finest instruction and facilities in North America. The department has more than 950 undergraduate and 400 graduate students and has 10 specialized research areas.

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Electrical and Computer Engineers work with systems, programs, and communications in order to control everything from data to processes to electrical power.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) offers undergraduate programs in electrical engineering, computer engineering, and engineering physics. With 61 professors who are also respected researchers, the Department serves 600 undergraduates and 355 graduate students.
