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, DeanIt is my pleasure to welcome you to this web site for the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Victoria and to let you know that this is a wonderful place to study and do research.

It is a great time to be studying engineering or computer science, especially in British Columbia where the technology industry is the biggest and fastest growing sector in the province. Our faculty is known for its co-op program, which is a required part of the Engineering programs and optional in Computer Science. We are a leader in Canada in graduate co-op, with one of the highest proportions of graduate students doing co-op. Overall there are more than 1300 employers in Engineering and Computer Science Co-op, many of whom are part of the BC technology industry. Engineering undergraduates do four co-op work terms in Canada or internationally which gives students a great opportunity to explore different career paths before graduation, as well as helping to pay the bills. Our graduates are sought-after by employers.

The Engineering Faculty has four departments: Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. We offer degrees in Computer Science as well as accredited undergraduate engineering degrees in Biomedical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical, and Software Engineering. Biomedical Engineering is the only BME degree program in BC and after graduating its first class, it is now a fully accredited program. We are the second largest engineering faculty in BC with 2400 full time equivalent undergraduate students and more than 500 graduate students. Our principle areas of research focus are Information and Communication Technology, Energy Systems, Biomedical Engineering, and Green and Smart Cities. Other distinctive activities are an award winning graduate entrepreneurship program that has created five successful spinoff companies, the Centre for Aerospace Research located at the Victoria Airport and our combined program in Music and Computer Science.

Our students have taken the initiative to organize eight different design teams that compete nationally and internationally in student competitions. They invariably do well in their competitions and frequently come home with prizes; their success has helped make a name for our university. Three teams that have done particularly well recently are Formula SAE, ECOSat and the Rocketry Team. For many students their design team experience is a highlight of their university career.

We have 89 faculty members, many of whom have received awards for their research. Two faculty members are Thomson-Reuters highly cited researchers, and two are fellows of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research. We also have four Fellows of the Royal Society of Canada, including one junior fellow and 10 Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Engineering. UVic is typically first or second in Canada in the Leiden Ranking for citation impact in both Mathematics and Computer Science, and Physical Science and Engineering.

Research and innovation are at the heart of our graduate programs. In rapidly evolving disciplines such as ours, keeping our undergraduate programs 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 for our degree programs and for the wider benefits in the discovery of new knowledge in the applied sciences and contributions to industrial innovation.
