Job Description


Situated in beautiful Wascana Park, one of the largest urban parks in North America, the University of Regina is a comprehensive institution, emphasizing 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-full programs in Electronic, Environmental, Industrial, Petroleum and Software Systems Engineering that are accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. We also offer M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. programs and other interdisciplinary graduate programs. The faculty offers unique Co-operative Education and Internship programs and has approximately 900 undergraduate students and almost 400 graduate students (of which about 140 graduate students are in Ph.D. programs). 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 Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation, SaskPower, the Saskatchewan Research Council, the University’s Energy Transition Hub, Clean Energy Technologies Research Institute | CETRI and the Institute for Energy, Environment and Sustainable Communities.
