Program Overview

For over 100 years, the Faculty of Engineering of the Royal Military College (RMC) has offered programs leading to the Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) degree to prepare future officers for professional careers in the Canadian Forces. The focus of the Faculty of Engineering is the development of professional competence in areas applicable to military-related issues and technical problems faced by society at large. Programs are offered in chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, aeronautical engineering and mechanical engineering. All programs are offered in both French and English and each program's curricula combines engineering-specific courses with knowledge-broadening humanities courses. Engineering students complete a common first- year general engineering program with specialization beginning in the second year. The fourth-year program in every discipline includes a realistic engineering project study in which students must define a problem and then find a solution.


All programs accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB)
Low student-to-teacher ratio (class sizes range from 20 - 50)
Six areas of concentration offered - aeronautical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering
