  • Accreditation Extended for Seven Engineering Programs
    October 31, 2011

    In June 2011, the College of Engineering submitted a report to the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) addressing issues raised during the 2008 accreditation visit.  The CEAB has reviewed the report and extended the accreditation of the following programs until June 30, 2015:  Agriculture & Bioresource Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Geological Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. 

    The Computer Engineering and Environmental Engineering programs were recently reviewed and received accreditation by the CEAB until June 30, 2014.

  • Environmental Engineering and Computer Engineering Programs Receive Accreditation
    September 15, 2011

    In February 2011, a team from the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) visited the College of Engineering to review two of our programs, Computer Engineering and Environmental Engineering. The visit resulted in a renewed three-year accreditation of the Computer Engineering program and a first-time, three-year accreditation of the Environmental Engineering program. The first graduates of the accredited Environmental Engineering program convocated in June 2011.

    All nine engineering programs offered through the College of Engineering are now accredited with the CEAB.

  • University of Saskatchewan Students and Canadian Astronaut, Commander Chris Hadfield, at a CSA-Sponsored Breakfast
    May 06, 2011


    On April 13, 2011, a group of twenty six University of Saskatchewan students from Physics and Engineering Physics, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering enjoyed the company of Canadian Astronaut, Commander Chris Hadfield, during a CSA-sponsored breakfast at the Saskatchewan Science Centre.  Commander Chris Hadfield shared his experiences pertaining to his career in aerospace, including the scientific and engineering aspects of spaceflight, his experiences as both a test pilot and astronaut, and descriptions of his work with reference to concepts such as aerodynamics, center of pressure, and thrust vectoring.  The experience has given the students an increased appreciation of their current studies and an awareness of future opportunities that are available in scientific research and the space industry in Canada.
