Best Bachelors in Engineering Design 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.
