Theme 1: Research: from Curiosity to Impact

Queen’s Engineering will build on a trajectory of success – a 50% increase in research funding, and the hiring of 30 new faculty members over the past four years – with dramatic improvements to our human and physical capital.

We will increase our faculty complement and recruit graduate students in areas of strength and impact such as energy research, sustainability, resilient infrastructure, climate change, biomedical technologies and intelligent systems.

Multidisciplinary collaboration will strengthen and grow our research clusters. We will support our early-career researchers with mentorship, networking, and funding to accelerate their research careers.

Queen’s Engineering will ensure that outstanding research is valued, recognized and visible. Our research environment will provide the physical infrastructure, tools, training and support necessary for our students and faculty to reach their full potential.
