Curiosity Creates

[Curiosity Creates]

At Queen’s University’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, the world’s problems are our adrenalin, provoking our relentless drive to explore, decode, and reframe. We blend curiosity with a cross-disciplinary approach to ask, “what if?”, forging ahead to find solutions for the 21st century and beyond. We ask not only how to build and construct better structures, but how to speed the flow of information, protect the natural environment, propel medical progress, and eliminate the gap between what is and what can be.

Come join our diverse, inquisitive minds, and turn wonder into reality.
