1 Faculty of Engineering A Tradition of Excellence in Engineering and Computer Science (www.engineering.uottawa.ca/en)

2 The Faculty of Engineering provides its graduates with top quality education in engineering and computer science, preparing them to practice their professions competently, to continue learning in their discipline, and to move into other related fields including business, law and medicine. Excellence and diversity in research are essential to our mission and build on strong collaboration with industry and government research laboratories. The Faculty encourages a spirit of entrepreneurship amongst its professors and students. The Faculty strives to provide a learning environment that promotes excellence and innovation, ethical practice and responsibility towards society. The Faculty is committed to a culture built on respect of the individual and fair treatment for all. Our mission Dr. Murat Saatcioglu leads the Canadian delegation for earthquake reconnaissance investigations to the Peoples Republic of China (September 2008)
