Western Engineering ranks second on Corporate Knights survey

Western Engineering News | September 25, 2012

Western Engineering ranked second place in the 2012 Corporate Knights Magazine survey, claiming the spot for the second year in a row.

The national ranking places Engineering among the best in the country for integrating sustainability into its curriculum, closely following the University of Toronto who received the highest score.

Western Engineering is credited for guaranteeing students a number of streams entirely dedicated to social and/or environmental impact management: green process engineering, environmental engineering, and biochemical and environmental engineering, among others.

The ranking, modeled after the US-based Beyond Grey Pinstripes Survey, scored programs in the areas of institutional support, student initiatives, and course work.

The engineering programs were evaluated based on a broad definition of sustainability, incorporating environmental and social concerns such as issues of social justice, professional ethics, cultural diversity, renewable energy, climate change and conservation.
