WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE DESIGN ENGINEERING?

 
Sustainable Design Engineering goes beyond being efficient, attractive, on time, and on budget. It cares about how such goals are achieved, about its effect on people, the environment, and the society.
 
It is a growing part of today’s product- and systems-design conversations. While sustainable design is inherent in all traditional engineering disciplines, we have developed an engineering program that puts a specialized focus on the design process across the various disciplines through a project-based curriculum. UPEI was the first school in Canada to adopt this approach for a full four-year degree program.
 
 

DESIGN YOUR CAREER PATH!

 
With a degree in Sustainable Design Engineering, students will have a competitive advantage of their multidisciplinary approach to sustainable design. The growing global focus on the ability to develop or enhance efficient solutions for systems and processes in both private and public companies will open up many exciting career opportunities now and in the future.
