Job Description


Situated in beautiful Wascana Park, one of the largest urban parks in North America, the University of Regina is a comprehensive institution that emphasizes excellence in teaching and research, as well as public service. Experiential learning and cross-disciplinary teaching are strongly supported.

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science presently offers five programs in Electronic, Environmental, Industrial, Petroleum and Software Systems Engineering that are accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. A new Energy Systems Engineering program started in Fall 2023. We also offer M. Eng., M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. programs, as well as interdisciplinary graduate programs. The Faculty offers unique Co-operative Education and Internship programs and has approximately 650 undergraduate and 350 graduate students (about 140 graduate students are in Ph.D. programs). The Faculty has a strong commitment to providing an excellent “systems approach” to engineering education. Each program has a unique implementation of the systems theme, founded on the common underlying goal of producing engineering graduates with a strong base of technical knowledge and with the breadth of complementary skills that successful professional engineers should have in the workplace.

The Faculty enjoys close collaborative relationships with industry and government research laboratories. These include the Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation, SaskPower, the Saskatchewan Research Council, the University’s Clean Energy Transition Hub (CETH), Clean Energy Technologies Research Institute (CETRI) and the Institute for Energy, Environment and Sustainable Communities (IEESC). More information on the Faculty can be found on our website at: https://www.uregina.ca/engineering/.
