A Message from the Dean

Congratulations on your acceptance to Queen’s Engineering and Applied Science!

For over 125 years, we’ve been training engineers and business leaders how to think and design – collaborating across disciplines, cultures and borders to solve some of the world’s biggest problems. Our alumni are at the forefront of industries, from mining to finance, from high tech to health care. Are you ready to join them?

Queen’s has made the difficult but necessary decision to deliver your Fall 2020 semester remotely, in order to keep people safe during this time of crisis. Although we know that starting your engineering education remotely is not ideal, the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science has the experience, tools and expertise to provide you with a high quality, engaging learning experience online. We already have best-in-class online programs in some of our departments, and we are investing significantly in course design, technology and tools to ensure a high-quality educational experience.

Please join us for one of our webinar and Q&A sessions or visit our Future Students webpage to learn more about our programs and the Queen’s engineering community.

Did your last term of high school leave you feeling a bit unprepared for university? We’ve got you covered! Get ready for Fall with our free QEng Prep program – featuring diagnostics and self-guided modules in math, chemistry and physics to give you the skills and confidence to succeed at Queen’s!

We know how important the Queen’s spirit is for incoming students, and we are working closely with the Engineering Society to plan out events and activities to provide the Queen’s spirit and sense of community for you, both remotely and when we welcome you on campus in January.

Just because you aren’t on campus doesn’t mean you can’t connect with your peers. We’ll help you make friends through social connections, and have you work in virtual teams. We will support making connections with upper-year students, and plan to group students living in the same city into teams for in-person work if permitted by health authorities

Thank you for being flexible and responsive during these changing times, and for staying committed to your education. We looking forward to you joining the Queen’s community!
