Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Design Engineering

University of Prince Edward Island
Campus Full time 4 years September 2017 Canada Charlottetown

The program follows current trends in engineering education and focuses on student outcomes. Small class sizes within an activity-based learning environment allow faculty and staff to be student-centric and to provide specific and timely input to individual students. [+]

Best Bachelors in Arts in Canada 2017. The School of Sustainable Design Engineering at UPEI offers a progressive and innovative four-year Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Sustainable Design Engineering) degree which recognizes the need for a broad and balanced engineering education. The program follows current trends in engineering education and focuses on student outcomes. Small class sizes within an activity-based learning environment allow faculty and staff to be student-centric and to provide specific and timely input to individual students. Students are exposed to a broad base of knowledge and skills in engineering science, natural science, mathematics, and complementary studies in concert with an applied project-based design stream simulating the engineering profession. Students entering the degree program will be actively engaged in the profession of engineering from day one, providing creative and sustainable solutions to society’s problems. The degree program is designed to provide a highly flexible learning environment that is responsive to the dynamic needs of students and the industries that employ them. In addition to fundamental science, engineering science and mathematics courses, students are required to develop skills in engineering design, communication, analysis, project management, professional ethics and more. With a solid grounding in these fundamentals, students in Program Years 3 and 4 can enhance their technical knowledge by choosing one of three engineering focus areas: Mechatronics (MT), Sustainable Energy (SE), or Bioresources (BR). This program is specifically structured to maximize flexibility and mobility for students looking to complete a degree in any engineering discipline. The first two years of the degree program are common with those of our partner institutions. This allows, for instance, students with a Diploma in Engineering from one of the Dalhousie University Associated Universities to transfer into the third year of the Sustainable Design Engineering degree. Similarly, students seeking a degree in a more traditional engineering discipline can complete the first two years of their studies at UPEI before transferring to Dalhousie or the University of New Brunswick to complete their degree. Engineered by Design It is increasingly recognized that understanding basic science and mathematics are only two of the many areas that are essential to professional engineering practice. Engineering students in this program must make responsible decisions based on good judgment and an ability to justify decisions within a structured analytical framework. Based on this generalist philosophy, this program is designed to develop a student’s ability to think. This fundamental requirement of engineers to think critically in response to ever-changing and complex situations is accomplished through a design stream core which relies heavily on inquiry-based learning supported by traditional lecture-based knowledge. The progression in complex thinking skills occurs over the duration of the four-year program and beyond through appreciation of lifelong learning and professional development. An integrated, project-based professional practice (PBPP) stream provides an applied foundation where students work on real community and industry-based projects in every semester of their program. Traditional content courses are delivered via an integrated and timely approach with the PBPP courses so that professional practice skills are developed in a simulated workplace environment. This program emphasizes design as an essential element of engineering as reflected in the Community Design Program (Year 1), and the Junior Design (Year 2) and Senior Design (Years 3 and 4) Clinics.

Bachelor Of Arts And Design, Cartoon Concentration

Université Du Québec En Outaouais UQO
Campus Full time Part time September 2017 Canada Gatineau

This program allows and encourages openness to the visual world by interaction between the mastery of formal language and its application in the different modes of expression in the visual arts, graphic design or comics. [+]

The comic is an art both literary and graphic. Composed of a succession of pictures with text, it helps to tell a story real or imagined. To make a cartoon, the artist must establish the synopsis, specify the cutting action, write dialogues, create the characters and the environment in which they operate. He must also choose viewpoints, framing and layout of thumbnails, perform a first draft of the design, conduct inking, the color development and ultimately transcribe the dialogues and comments. Once published, the comic can be presented in various formats (eg. Headband, board, book, album). OBJECTIVES This program allows and encourages openness to the visual world by interaction between the mastery of formal language and its application in the different modes of expression in the visual arts, graphic design or comics. In addition, it facilitates, stimulates and encourages the student to the student or the discovery of modes of personal expression and promotes development in a gradual process of integration in different disciplines.Il also provides a structure which provides knowledge offers possibilities of experimentation and allows to walk in the creative process, from conceptualization and communication. Finally, it proposes an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach to the visual arts, graphic design and comics, either: theoretical training aimed independence of thought, aesthetic knowledge and critical articulation; practical training that covers the application of formal language and mastery of expression through different mediums; and synthesis training aimed professional autonomy, the ability to establish a practical and an ability to function within established structures.

Best Bachelors in Arts in Canada 2017. Honours Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies Architecture is both a profession and a discipline of study, relating to a broad spectrum of career opportunities. As a profession it plays a pivotal role in the production of the built environment, bridging the technical and social, practical and theoretical. It is a cultural and artistic practice that is critically engaged with the forces of urbanization and technological change, the challenges of environmental sustainability, and the struggle for cultural expression. It involves the design, production, and organization of material culture from the scale of domestic objects to the scale of the metropolitan region. As such, studies in architecture interact with numerous related disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, as well as engineering, technology, and media. These studies may lead to professional graduate programs in architecture, landscape architecture, planning and urban design, as well as careers in related design disciplines, the arts, history, business, journalism, and public policy. Honours Bachelor of Arts, Architectural Studies: Two Honours Bachelor of Arts majors in architectural studies are offered by the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design in collaboration with the Faculty of Arts and Science. The architectural studies programs provide degree options for students wishing to study architecture as part of a liberal arts education. The programs serve as an introduction to the discipline of architecture, focusing on the state of the art, current issues and emerging practices, all considered from critical, theoretical and historical perspectives. Studio courses in design and visual communications provide opportunities to learn practical, formal and analytical skills, and are augmented by advanced courses in allied design arts, such as landscape, furniture, graphic, and stage design. The Architectural Studies Major Program allows a choice between concentrations in architectural design or in history, theory, and criticism. The architectural design concentration is intended for students wishing exposure to architectural design within a broad liberal arts education while the history, theory, and criticism concentration is intended for students wishing a broad interdisciplinary education in architectural studies but not wishing to pursue design. Introductory courses begin at the first-year level and lead into a sequence of courses in architectural design and representation, history, theory and technology. Emphasis is placed on advanced theory and interdisciplinarity, since contemporary architecture is inexorably tied to knowledge and practice in urbanism, environmental studies, literature, media, cultural theory, art, science and technology, as well as philosophy, economics and political science. This program could be combined with a major in another discipline, for example fine art, urban studies or book and media studies. Graduates who have completed this program and have a BA degree may apply to graduate professional programs in architecture. Toronto (St. George) campus [-]
