School Description

University of Calgary was established in 1966, and has graduated over 160,000 alumni from 152 countries. Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2016, the University of Calgary is aiming to be one of Canada The University of Calgary is a young university in a dynamic city. A location in the country’s energy capital has its ups (some excellent job opportunities) and its downs (downswings in the sector are felt here first). “We’re achieving the high standards we’ve set before us, as we near the goal of becoming a top-five research institute in the country,” says president Elizabeth Cannon. 

As the university strives to achieve its goal, it is “grounded in innovative learning and teaching, and fully integrated with the community of Calgary and beyond,” says Cannon. The school is a leader in energy and engineering, but also produces leading thinkers in public policy, applied sciences—even outer space. The main campus is a mix of old and new buildings with green spaces and underground tunnels that help students escape cold winters. Among recent additions are two residences, as well as an institute dedicated to enhancing teaching and learning experiences across campus, which opened in 2016. A $174-million expansion to the Schulich School of Engineering opened to students that same year. The expansion provides space for 400 more engineering students.
