Description

On June 17, 2016 the Board of Governors unanimously approved For the Public Good, (Au service de l’intérêt public) as the University of Alberta’s new institutional strategic plan. This approval followed the unanimous recommendation of the plan from General Faculties Council on May 30, 2016.

At the highest level, “For the Public Good” is meant to empower and enable each member of the University of Alberta to build, experience, excel, engage, and sustain. The successful implementation of the plan will depend on all, individually and collectively, taking action.

As a community, the U of A has developed one long-term, multi-layered plan to guide the overall decision-making and governance processes of the University of Alberta. Some of the goals, objectives and strategies envisioned here can be implemented immediately; others will unfold over the course of the next decade. It is anticipated that there will be an in-depth review in year five.

The University of Alberta is a strong supporter of Campus Alberta. The university has a long history of collaboration with Alberta’s post-secondary institutions. When the provincial government created Campus Alberta in 2002, the U of A took on an active leadership rolepromoting excellence, access and efficiency across Alberta’s post-secondary sector. Our leadership includes not only programming and research partnerships, but also administrative collaborations. The following timelines reflect the excellence, impact and efficiency the U of A brings to Campus Alberta by highlighting some of the university's many collaborative projects and programs.

Our graduate curriculum is comprehensive, spanning a range of different disciplines, including solid and bio-mechanics, thermo-fluids, robotics and controls, aerosol science, engineering and project management, optimization. Such a variety of disciplinary strengths gives rise to opportunities for transdisciplinary research and graduate students often work on a variety of topics within their research groups. The key strengths of our graduate programs in Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Management include robust levels of research output, excellent training opportunities, including professional development training, and high-quality employment outcomes post-graduation. Students in the Master of Science (MSc) and doctoral (PhD) programs are treated as “junior colleagues in research,” and supervisors provide a tailored combination of autonomy and guidance in developing the good scientific judgment, critical thinking, and communication skills necessary for success. Our Master of Engineering program provides targeted training to those individuals wishing to expand and advance their knowledge of core and specialized concepts in Mechanical Engineering or Engineering Management. In fostering a robust community of interdisciplinary scholarship and achievement, we work to support a broad range of student backgrounds, learning styles, and student aspirations.
