Engineering has more impact on our day-to-day lives than any other profession. Using creativity and collaboration, engineers and their teams solve global problems, such as providing clean water to communities, stewarding natural resources and even improving the ease of your commute to school.
Engineering gives you the chance to make a difference in the world in whichever area you are most passionate about.
The Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.E.) degree is a four-year program. All first year engineering students will take a common set of courses before entering a major specialization, in their second year.
We offer major specializations that cater to a wide variety of interests:
- Chemical Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Computer Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Engineering Physics
- Environmental Engineering
- Geological Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
Choosing a major
At the end of your first year, you will select your preferred major in which you plan to pursue a degree. You will be asked to rank your top three program choices and we will consider you for your preferred programs based on a competitive average calculated using your first-year engineering courses.
Your junior humanities/social science elective, science elective or commerce class will not be used in the average calculation.
Certificate in Professional Communication
The Certificate in Professional Communication (CPC) program is a certificate of proficiency program that prepares students for a professional career by cultivating communicative judgment in professional practice. This certificate can be completed in conjunction with a degree or on its own.
You can further enhance your education by taking additional specialized training in the following options:
Engineering Entrepreneurship Option
Learn to deal with all aspects of a successful entrepreneurship enterprise. This option consists of eight courses and can be added to any of the nine B.E. degrees
Mineral Processing Option
The Chemical and Biological Engineering Mineral Processing Option provides students with the opportunity to take 6 courses that gives them a focus on the discipline of mineral processing.
Geological Engineering Mining Option
This option equips geological engineering students with a foundational knowledge of mining operations. Curricular emphasis is placed on process engineering, mine design, excavation techniques, and mineral deposits in the 6 courses that are required for this option.
Mechanical Engineering Mining Option
This option offers students the opportunity to take 6 courses, plus complete a mandatory twelve-month internship, within their Mechanical Engineering program, that gives them a focus on topics of relevance to the mining industry.
Engineering Professional Internship Program (EPIP)
A full-time internship opportunity which includes a minimum of eight months of professionally supervised work experience in industry. Participating in EPIP extends a student’s degree completion time by a minimum of one year.
Indigenous Peoples Initiatives
There are dedicated programs for Indiginous students in Saskatoon and La Ronge such as learning communities, a summer bridging program, and the student success program. If you are interested in engineering, but are missing a high school science class, or if your high school average is below 75% there are pathway programs to help you meet those requirements before you start your Engineering degree.
