    Course Summary

    Lakehead University’s Engineering programs broadly speaking deal with the design and maintenance of industrial or technological systems. Any of the Engineering specialties on offer would be perfect for a curious student who really wants know what makes the modern world tick.

    The Faculty of Engineering operate 5 separate departments, each of which offers a different Engineering specialty. These include:

    • Chemical Engineering
    • Civil Engineering
    • Electrical Engineering
    • Mechanical Engineering
    • Software Engineering

    The Mechanical Engineering program is unique in that it is the only such program in Canada which can earn a high school graduate not only a BEng degree but also an Engineering Technology Diploma in only 4 years.

    Lakehead University offers you not just the advantage of learning from world class instructors and researchers, but also the advantage of small class sizes. You’ll be able to develop personal relationships with your instructors, and research has shown that personal attention does more for your grades and future career than any other single factor.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
