The School serves as a hub for three key roles and activities: to provide a launching pad for the next phase of the faculty’s well-recognized activities in experiential engineering design that has been driven up to now by the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Engineering Design; to develop more broadly innovative approaches to teaching and learning in engineering, and to support the design of curricula that best meet the needs of the ever-changing engineering workplace and that underline a distinctive leadership role for the University of Ottawa.
School of Engineering Design and Teaching Innovation
Building on existing programs under the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Engineering Design, this new and exciting initiative will bring entrepreneurship and innovation to the forefront of our academic community, inspire engineering schools across Canada, and redefine the faculty’s mission to foster a new generation of engineers equipped to share their ideas with the world.
About the school
Engineering Design and Teaching Innovation
School’s philosophy and vision
The school will connect with organizations in the community, in government and in the private sector to expand on our capacity of bringing real-world interdisciplinary problems to the engineering learning environment and to increase the impact of our students’ projects. We are seeking creative thinkers who want to have an impact by pushing the boundaries in engineering education to better respond to the needs of society, by improving our understanding of the pedagogy and teaching of engineering disciplines, and who wish to play a pivotal role in the revitalization of engineering programs so that our next generation of students are equipped to fully address the key challenges we face in the 21st century.
Centre for Entrepreneurship and Engineering Design (CEED)
The Centre for Entrepreneurship and Engineering Design is well renowned within the uOttawa community. This Centre offers engineering students the ideal environment to develop and implementation of their ideas. CEED allows students to have access to various design spaces, student clubs, courses and more.
The Faculty of Engineering provides its graduates with top quality education in engineering and computer science, preparing them to practice their professions competently to meet the ever-changing needs of society, and to continue learning their discipline, allowing them to move into other related fields including business, law and medicine.
Excellence and diversity in research are essential to our mission and build on our strong collaboration with industry and government research laboratories.
The faculty encourages a spirit of entrepreneurship amongst its students and personnel. The faculty strives to provide a learning environment that promotes excellence and innovation, ethical practice and responsibility towards society. The faculty is committed to a culture built on respect of the individual and fair treatment for all.
