These include the Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation, SaskPower, the Saskatchewan Research Council, the University’s Energy Transition Hub, Clean Energy Technologies Research Institute (CETRI) and the Institute for Energy, Environment and Sustainable Communities (IEESC). More information on the Faculty can be found on our website at: https://www.uregina.ca/engineering/.

The Software Systems Engineering program is designed to educate students to be skilled in the professional construction and engineering of software systems and their life cycles. Examples of such systems include but are not limited to web transactional systems, management information systems, interactive multimedia systems, embedded systems, game software systems, mobile computing, decision support systems, cloud computing, robotics, quantum computing and security.
