Faculty of Engineering & Computer Science (ENCS)

Foremost among the opportunities and challenges at the present time is the effort to take another significant step in situating Concordia's Faculty of Engineering & Computer Science among the leaders of excellence in research, innovation and education. This year, the Faculty will examine all its undergraduate curricula aiming at restructuring the academic offerings into uniquely excellent academic education. This will be a bold and comprehensive step, for which we will mobilize all the academic intellectual and organizational resources of the Faculty. We are setting our eyes on a leading position and role in engineering education in Canada and beyond.
