Graduate Studies

Students who have achieved academic success in an undergraduate degree should consider graduate studies (APPLY). More than 450 students from Canada and around the world come to the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Manitoba to pursue their academic dreams: studying and researching at the graduate level with professors who are known nationally and internationally for their excellence in research and graduate education. The Faculty of Engineering is recognized internationally for its research achievements in Biosystems, Civil, Computer, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering. The Faculty is presently home to several Canada Research and Industrial Research Chairs, sponsored by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and private industry. The Faculty is the headquarters of a National Centre of Excellence in Intelligent Sensing for Innovative Structures (ISIS) and participates in National Networks of Centres of Excellence.

The Faculty also participates with TRLabs in research on telecommunications. In response to advances in technology, the Faculty of Engineering uses state-of-the-art equipment for both teaching and research. One notable facility is the Antenna Laboratory, where antennas for portable communications devices are tested in a joint venture with industry. Another major installation is the Structural Engineering and Construction Research and Development Facility. It includes a 2,500 square-foot structural floor and a 1.2 million-pound cyclic loading machine that can test large-scale bridge and building components.

Whether building better bridges and roads or growing crystals in a space shuttle flight, expertise within the Faculty of Engineering is available to meet any challenge. Faculty members collaborate with farm organizations, major manufacturers and utilities, and all levels of government. Research within the Faculty generates external support amounting to approximately $15 million per year. Sponsors include corporations in the public and private sectors and government sources such as the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
