UCalgary launches BSc in Sustainable Systems Engineering

April 4, 2022
The University of Calgary has launched a new engineering degree: the Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Systems Engineering. The multidisciplinary program will bring different engineering disciplines together to work on designing, integrating, and managing systems. The program will include four main focus areas, including sustainable systems; cities and communities; energy and resources; and food, agriculture, and biomass. It will also teach students about Indigenous issues so that they understand both the physical and cultural impacts of projects. “There’s a very strong realization that we have to do better in terms of the environment and there’s a widespread recognition that the industry needs to change,” said UCalgary professor Dr David Wood. “There’s a pull from industry, but also from students, to make this change.” UCalgary (AB)
