Event description

Description

What is Engineering? is an annual joint initiative between the College of Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan, the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Regina and the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan.

This is an opportunity for Grade 12 students and their advisors to become familiar with the engineering profession and the different engineering programs offered, to experience engineering education, and to ask questions to engineering students, practicing professionals and professors on a variety of subjects related to engineering and acceptance into the university programs.


Aside from presentations and Q & A, students can register in 3 of the following topics/activities to learn more about the programs available:

Chemical Engineering - A clear visual: Come and watch our systems in action! This session includes demonstrations of various chemical engineering systems in operation including distillation, extraction, chemical reaction, floatation, crystallization and others. Many of these are large in scale and made of glass, thus exciting to watch in action.


Chemical Engineering Pilot Plant: We do our research in the laboratory and scale it up in our pilot plant. This session includes a tour of chemical engineering pilot plant that houses one of the tallest experimental fluidized bed, torrefaction systems, catalytic reactors and many others. Wear a hard hat and enjoy your guided tour!


Where do you want to build?: Learn how geological engineers measure rock properties using two different types of rocks, then determine which slope is better to build next to.

Creating Engineers for Tomorrow: Learn how electrical and computer engineering technologies are used to shape the future of tomorrow’s world. Demonstrations include: 1. Designing electronic chips for the space and beyond; 2. Next generation GPU architecture; 3. Smart grid – modernizing sustainable electricity for future Saskatchewan; 4. Develop internet-of-things network and smart sensors for Smart city; 5. See the music: find out what sounds look like in the frequency domain using a spectrum analyzer (you can bring your own musical instrument to see what harmonics it produces); 6. Other examples showing practical applications.

Computer Analysis of Machines and Mechanisms: In this session, Prof. Allan Dolovich from the Department of Mechanical Engineering will lead students in an exercise demonstrating computer analysis of dynamic effects in mechanisms. With the guidance of Prof. Dolovich, students will work at computers to produce their own dynamic simulations.


Breaking Strength of Steel: Are you interested in learning about the breaking point or failure point of different metals? Come and see a demonstration on how to conduct the test and learn how to measure material fatigue.


Engineering Fair and College Tour: See the design projects of our students, the different interest groups that our students are involved in and view our college facilities.
