The Department of Industrial Engineering at Dalhousie University offers strong programs aimed at meeting the needs of Canadian Industry. All first-year students will complete the core engineering program and will apply to their desired discipline in the winter term of the first year.

Program options:

Dalhousie's Engineering Diploma program

If you prefer to begin your studies in a smaller campus environment, the Engineering Diploma program at Dalhousie's Faculty of Agriculture in Truro is the academic equivalent of the first two years of an Engineering degree (BEng). After earning your diploma, you can complete the final two years of your BEng in Halifax.

What you'll learn/do with a BEng degree

The Faculty of Engineering at Dalhousie provides a well-balanced technical education. It prepares graduates to practice in design, research, development, fabrication, testing, processing, construction, operation, planning, sales, and management. The opportunities in engineering are virtually limitless, allowing you to pursue a career in almost any field, in any industry, in any location around the world.

You'll gain real life experience

In their final year, all students undertake a major project. Projects are drawn from companies or institutions outside the University and are treated as a consulting assignment. The students are evaluated based on their ability to achieve an innovative solution by drawing upon the analytical skills developed throughout their program of studies. They must also, of course, satisfy the practical requirements of the outside client.
