The Faculty has a strong commitment to providing an excellent "systems approach" to engineering education for our students. 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 Petroleum Technology Research Centre (PTRC), and the Saskatchewan Research Council, both of which are located in Regina Research Park, adjacent to the campus.
