“We always say 'Engineering is a team sport', and it is true! The best memories from 1st year engineering are definitely from Orientation-Week.  Faculty and residence sophs helped us move into residence and got us quickly familiarized with the campus.  During O-Week there was a One Love Rally which I really enjoyed as it brought all students’ hearts together.”

“I decided to attend Western University because it was and continues to be the only school that offers Green Process Engineering. In first year, I lived in Essex Hall on the Engineering Floor – I would highly recommend this option as it was a really great experience being surrounded by people that have common interests and ambitions. It was also nice to always have people to study for an exam with as well as people to celebrate with after!”

Ask me a question

“Coming out of high school, I chose engineering because I always had a love for math and physics, and was very curious about how things worked. Knowing very little details of engineering, I chose Western because of the common first year where I was able to explore the different streams of engineering. In first year I loved my first ever computer programming course and I decided to enter into software engineering in my second year. I became a very involved student within the engineering community being the President of Women in Engineering, and the VP Internal on the Undergraduate Engineering Society Student’s Council."

“I am very fortunate to be able to speak with many students and parents and help them learn about all of the opportunities that engineering at Western has to offer.  I’m continually amazed at the research our professors are conducting and the knowledge that the students gain – not only in terms of academics but also the soft skills (leadership, communication, team building) that make for a well rounded student who is successful in the work force.”
