University of California, Berkeley / Applied Science and Technology Graduate Group, College of Engineering

University of California, Berkeley

The University of California, Berkeley, has both undergraduate and graduate interdisciplinary programs in the physical sciences. Engineering Science is a four year undergraduate program within the College of Engineering. It consists of four degree tracks: Engineering Physics, Environmental Engineering Science, Engineering Math and Statistics, and Energy Engineering, with a total of about 150 undergraduate students. The emphasis is on basic science with engineering applications, and preparation for graduate studies. At the graduate level the program is titled Applied Science and Technology. It includes about 40 graduate students pursuing interdisciplinary research under the direction of faculty from electrical engineering and computer sciences, mechanical engineering, materials science and engineering, chemical engineering, chemistry, physics and mathematics.

Osaka University / Graduate School of Engineering Science, School of Engineering Science

Osaka University

Osaka University was established as a national university in 1931, as Osaka Imperial University. The University has grown rapidly in these 80 years, not only in size but also in terms of its contribution to the scholarly community. It now encompasses, in addition to its 11 undergraduate schools, 15 graduate schools, and 5 research institutions. The School of Engineering Science was established in 1961 to develop scientists with a keen interest in practical technology, and engineers who have a firm grasp of the basic sciences and who may use this expertise to develop new technology. At present the Graduate School of Engineering Science contains 177 teaching staff, 67 technical and administrative staff, about 2,000 undergraduate students, 550 master’s course students and 200 doctoral students. There are 10 undergraduate courses in four departments, and 11 postgraduate courses in three departments

National University of Singapore / Engineering Science Programme, Faculty of Engineering

National University of Singapore

Started in 2006, ESP is designed to educate a new class of engineer scientists for careers at the cutting edge of research and professional work in multidisciplinary areas. ESP students read a set of core modules in the first two years that provide a strong background in the fundamentals of engineering, science, mathematics and computing. Hands-on design projects are injected in the curriculum to integrate the knowledge learned and help students develop critical thinking, creativity, interpersonal skills and independent learning. In the final two years, students specialize in any one of the 4 fields:

  • Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
  • Computational Engineering Science
  • Photonics and Optics
  • Energy Systems

University of Toronto / Division of Engineering Science, Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering

University of Toronto

Engineering Science at the University of Toronto is an enriched academic program that prepares its students for a wide range of fields. It is one of the most selective and advanced engineering programs in the world, and is designed and delivered at a level that is notable in its academic demands.
In the first two years, students develop a strong foundation in both engineering and science. They then select one of eight Majors (Aerospace, Biomedical, Electrical & Computer, Energy Systems, Infrastructure, Mathematics, Statistics & Finance, Nanoengineering or Physics) to focus on in their final two years.
The Engineering Science program produces graduates who are well-rounded fast learners with strong analytical, problem-solving and organizational skills. Many of our graduates continue their studies at top schools around the world, however, many still embark on professional engineering-related careers.
