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 November 1st by noon.

Parent and Counselor Session

10:00-10:30 - UR Career Counselor
Susan McKay is the Career Counselor in the Advising and Career Centre (ACE). She does career assessment, exploration and counseling for all UR students, staff and alumni. She also teaches career sessions and assists students in resume writing and interview skills. She has been invited to inform the parents of our future students about what they can do with an engineering degree. Petroleum Systems Engineering grads don't always work in the oil fields! She has excellent websites and resources to show you. It's definitely worth checking out!

10:45-11:30 - Coffee and Questions
While our future students are in the labs getting hands on learning experience about what engineering really is, we would like to invite you to stay for a coffee and conversation. Grab a coffee on us in the Education Pit and mingle with our professors. 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)

A brief presentation will be given on the Industrial Systems Engineering (ISE) program focusing on the three primary areas, manufacturing/mechanical, management and Process.  The presentation will also cover where our student can get hired after graduation.  Students will participate in an interactive activity that will demonstrate the evolution of lean manufacturing methods used in world class manufacturing faculties.

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)

Tour will consist of a presentation with the answers to the questions that immediately arise when considering Petroleum Engineering as the future career: “will we run out of oil soon?" “would we still need oil?” and "what is good about Petroleum Engineering?" We will also have an activity that tells us the popular use of petroleum and how reliance we are on petroleum products in our daily lives.
