Teaching and Learning in Applied Science

To be successful, an engineer must have the professional skills necessary to be effective in today's workplace as well as understanding the technical basis of his or her discipline. From first year, we work to develop both the necessary professional skills and the expected technical mastery in our graduates.

Students with diverse learning styles and needs are welcome at Queen's. In particular, if you have a disability or health consideration that may require accommodations, please come to the Faculty Office.

A Culture of Integrated Learning

We are striving to create a culture of Integrated Learning, that broadens the student's experience beyond the bounds of one discipline, deepens the student's understanding, and develops additional skills desired by engineering employers. More specifically, we encourage Active Learning, Experiential Learning, Multi-Disciplinary Learning, and Skills Development. This culture is centred in our Integrated Learning Centre.

These web pages are intended to highlight this aspect of our programs, providing links to, as well as descriptions of, effective methods and individuals for the engineering community, prospective students, current students, staff and faculty.

New Learning Management System

Moodle is the new learning management system being launched by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. A series of help documents can be found on the Moodle page to help instructors use this tool in their courses.
