Each year, the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Regina and the College of Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan partner with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) to host the "What is Engineering?" event. High school students are invited to attend presentations and activities to introduce them to the profession of engineering itself and to the programs offered at both universities in Saskatchewan.

Please register for the "What is Engineering?" event using the online Registration form. REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
RSVP deadline is October 11th, 2016

Free Parking in Lot 15. The map can be found here.

Sneak Peek at Lab Tours: 

Electronic Systems Program
‎Faculty members from the Electronic Systems Engineering (ESE) program will give a presentation on the program's core electronics and engineering courses as well as the program specialization areas in Power, Controls, Communications, and Embedded Systems. The presentation will include examples and discussion about industries and employers that hire ESE graduates. During the presentation, examples of the hands-on lab experiments from different ESE courses will be on display.


"Tours of the Engineering Workshop will give students the chance to see equipment used in the Machining industry. The Workshop's purpose is to produce and repair equipment for the Engineering Faculty, including undergrad and graduate student projects. The Workshop is a vital link between the design concepts learned in Engineering, and the production elements required to bring these designs to reality."

Enviromental Systems Program

The EVSE lab tour will visit 7 different lab facilities on the first floor of the education building. The tour will showcase soil and material testing equipment, water quality testing, wastewater treatment, computer modelling within the geotechnical and hydrotechnical fields, and equipment used in the study of fluid mechanics.

Process Engineering Lab/ Industrial System Engineering

 Process Engineering Lab is one of the Labs of the Industrial System Engineering Program. This lab is for undergraduate students and equipped with many equipment related to six courses. Many students from different majors such as Industrial System Engineering, Environment System Engineering, and Petroleum System Engineering are attending this lab. This Lab has different equipment such as packed distillation column, packed adsorption column, reaction system (batch and continuous reactors), gas and liquid diffusion, heat exchanger systems (shell and tube, plated, tubular, and jacketed vessel with coil and stirrer), liquid-liquid extraction, solid –liquid extraction, refrigeration system, expansion of perfect gas, saturated liquid, solar energy, oil evaluation, etc. This lab enhances the knowledge of students to understand their theoretical background by applying these theories by performing different experiments. The students need to work in a team to collect date, analyze the data and write a technical report.

Software Systems  Program

The Software System Engineering program takes a hands on approach in their tour stop.  Students are introduced to the software engineering process from an initial problem, applied science design, and software engineering implementation.  Students are then involved in a software simulation featuring a proof of concept application.  As well, the Software Systems Engineering program is briefly discussed and students are given time to ask questions about the program.

Petroleum Systems Program

PSE program’s activity in the “What is Engineering” will be mainly focusing on demonstrate 1), “what is petroleum”, 2), “what petroleum is used for” and 3)“How to get petroleum”.  In “What is Petroleum” section, we will demonstrate different petroleum fluids including light oil, medium oil, heavy oil and tars. In the section of “what petroleum is used for”, we will demonstrate different products produced based on petroleum. And in “How to get petroleum” section, we will move a visual 2D model in our research lab to demonstrate how the petroleum was pushed out of ground.
