Community Connections

Western Engineering strives to provide the best engineering experience among Canada’s leading research-intensive universities.


We view engineering as a caring profession, bearing tremendous social responsibility. Our faculty members conduct leading-edge research in topical areas that benefit society. Students at the undergraduate and graduate level benefit from this knowledge, as faculty members draw from their research to teach.

Our Faculty’s modest size allows us to offer a student-focused, career-driven philosophy combining a wide array of programming with an extraordinary range of extracurricular activities. Students can customize their educational experience according to their personal interests. We refer to our huge array of opportunities as Western Engineering Plus.

We also take employer’s interests and needs into consideration when planning our curriculum. As a result, our accredited undergraduate and graduate degrees provide an outstanding technical education, incorporating teamwork, leadership, and entrepreneurship skills. We provide opportunities for students to acquire the tools to succeed - regardless of their ultimate career path.

We encourage you to join us to experience our philosophy for yourself!
