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 330 graduate students (of which about 100 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 Petroleum Technology Research Centre (PTRC), and the Saskatchewan Research Council, both of which are located in Regina Research Park, adjacent to the campus. More information on the Faculty can be found on our website at: www.uregina.ca/engg/.
