High technology in Victoria and Vancouver Island

Vancouver Island's high-tech sector is booming. It generates annual revenues of $1.7 billion, greatly strengthening the region's economic diversity. The Faculty of Engineering educates many of the highly-qualified personnel critical to the sector's growth.

Local growth of the high-tech sector has outpaced the provincial average. Greater Victoria is the second-largest technology sector in BC and technology is the #1 private industry in Greater Victoria.

Dean's
welcome

Dr. Tom Tiedje, DeanOn behalf of our faculty, staff and students, welcome to the University of Victoria's Faculty of Engineering

Over the 26-year lifetime of the Faculty, UVic has become one of the top-ranked comprehensive universities in Canada, a leader in surveys of student satisfaction and highly rated in research. Numerous companies have been created and staffed by UVic engineers and computer scientists, an indication of the success of our students and the importance of engineering to society. In part through the efforts of our graduates, technology is now the number one industry on Vancouver Island.

The Faculty of Engineering aspires to achieve a mutually supportive balance among undergraduate and graduate education, research, and service to the community. Cooperative education is a cornerstone of our undergraduate engineering programs and provides our graduates with invaluable experiential learning during their studies.

We offer a wide range of support to students, including Indigenous, female, students with a disability, and general diversity support.

Diverse programs

We offer Bachelor of Engineering degree programs in Computer, Electrical, Mechanical, and Software Engineeering, all accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board, and a Bachelor of Science degree program in Computer Science. Each department also offers Masters and Doctoral degrees through the Faculty of Graduate Studies. We also offer specializations in Mechatronics and Biomedical Engineering.

The Computer Science department�s degree options include new combined degrees with Geography, Health Information Sciences, Music, Psychology, and Visual Arts. These complement the Major and Honours programs in Computer Science and the combined degrees with Mathematics, Physics and Statistics.

Cooperative Education

Co-op, which combines academic studies with related job experience, allows students to earn as they learn, making valuable contacts that will contribute to their career success. Co-op is a required part of the engineering programs.

Research

Our Faculty contributes directly to the knowledge-based economy, and aspires to train the highly qualified individuals who will lead the technology-based economy of the future. The Faculty has about $12M/year in external research grants and contracts, and 10 of our faculty members hold Canada Research chairs. The research areas that are represented in our Faculty can be found by visiting the research areas page and departmental web sites.

Research and innovation are at the heart of our graduate programs. In rapidly evolving disciplines such as ours, keeping our undergraduate programs relevant and up to date depends on active engagement at the forefront of technology. The Faculty of Engineering is committed to ensuring that its research activities expand and flourish, both as the foundation of our degree programs, and for the wider benefits in terms of industrial innovation and discovery of new knowledge.
