What is Engineering?

Wed., Oct. 11, 2017 8:30 a.m. - Wed., Oct. 11, 2017 4:30 a.m.

Location: TBA

Contact: Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science - 306-585-4734

Registration Form

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, particularly Grade 12 students interested in Engineering and Science, 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. NEW :Registration will be open until October 5th by noon.

Parent and Counselor Session

10:00-11:00 AM

 While our future students are in the labs learning about engineering we would like to invite you to stay for a coffee and conversation.  Grab a coffee on us in the Crush Area and make your way back to the Theatre.  This is a great opportunity to ask questions about Coop jobs, the industry, academics, our faculty, the U of Saskatchewan Engineering Program, on-campus residence…pretty much anything you’d like to know!  So, come with your questions!

Sneak Peek at Lab Tours:

Electronic Systems Program (ESE)

Faculty members from 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 discussions 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.

Environmental Systems Program (EVSE)

The EVSE lab tour will visit the lab facility on the first floor of the education building. The tour will showcase how to make physical models of drinking water wells. Then will look at what happens when contaminants are spilled on the ground near our well.

Industrial Systems Engineering (ISE)

In this lab you will see equipment such as a packed distillation column, packed adsorption column, reaction system, gas and liquid diffusion, heat exchanger systems, liquid-liquid and 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 and perform different experiments. The Engineering students need to work in a team to collect and analyze the data followed by writing a technical report.

Software Systems Program (SSE)

The SSE program takes 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. The SSE Program will be discussed and students are given time to ask questions about the program.

Petroleum Systems Program (PSE)

This tour will demonstrate 1) “What is petroleum?” 2), “What petroleum is used for?” and 3) “How to get petroleum?” In the “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 is pushed out of the ground.
