Message from the Chief Executive Officer

Gerard McDonald ceo

Engineers Canada is pleased to publish this year’s enrolment and degrees awarded report highlighting trends in post-secondary engineering education in Canada. This document comprises information on all academic terms from the calendar years 2013 through 2017.

Canadian post-secondary institutions continue to report a strong growth in undergraduate degrees awarded, presenting 23.3 per cent more engineering degrees in 2017 than in 2013. It is reassuring to see that every engineering discipline awarded more degrees in 2017 than in 2013, and that most engineering disciplines have experienced a growth in undergraduate enrolment numbers in the same period.

We are excited to report that the proportion of female students established new records in the categories of undergraduate and post-graduate enrolment, as well as undergraduate degrees awarded. As of 2017, women accounted for 21.8 per cent of undergraduate students and 25.7 per cent of post-graduate students, as well as 20.6 per cent of undergraduate engineering degrees awarded. We hope that these achievements will inspire engineering education and the engineering profession to break new records in the years to come.

Canadian engineering programs remain a popular choice for international students. In 2017, the number of undergraduate students reached 13,474 or 16.3 per cent of the total.

For the third consecutive year, Engineers Canada collected data regarding Indigenous students’ enrolment and degrees awarded. Similar to the female population in engineering programs, Indigenous peoples are still greatly underrepresented, accounting for just over 1.2 per cent of reported undergraduate students. This is around four times lower than the 4.9 per cent of Canadians who identify as Indigenous peoples (Statistics Canada, 2017).

Engineers Canada will continue to track this information in the coming years to identify trends and to further encourage enrolment and achievement by post-secondary engineering programs that reflect Canada’s diversity.

Introduction

The Engineering Enrolment and Degrees Awarded Report is an annual examination of Canada's undergraduate and post-graduate engineering programs that evaluates trends in part- and full-time student enrolment and degrees awarded over a five-year period. In 2017, 51 universities provided information on their enrolment, programs, and degrees awarded.

The results highlight enrolment trends by discipline and institution, as well as the number of undergraduate and post-graduate degrees awarded each year. These results reveal trends specific to discipline, education, and gender, as well as the number of engineering graduates available to enter the labour market, international students’ participation in Canadian engineering education, and students studying in co-op programs. Enrolment trends in undergraduate, master’s, and doctorate levels are compared, along with men and women studying and graduating from engineering programs. For the third consecutive year, data regarding Indigenous peoples’ enrolment and graduation from engineering programs is presented in this report. Engineers Canada plans to continue this data collection in coming years to be able to identify emerging trends.

Data is provided by higher education institutions to Engineers Canada. Engineers Canada compiles the information in this report. Findings are then shared with Engineers Canada’s stakeholders and with the public. Engineers Canada greatly appreciates the contribution of these higher education institutions.

NOTE: When comparing data between years, only those higher education institutions who consistently responded to the survey year after year are included in the comparison. If an institution did not provide data in one or more of those years, they were not included in the comparison. This was done to ensure that the comparisons are fair and are as accurate as possible.

Undergraduate students

Total undergraduate student enrolment

Undergraduate student enrolment in accredited engineering programs totalled 82,480 in 2017. This is an increase of 14.4 per cent from 2013 and no significant change from 2016 was observed.

If engineering programs seeking accreditation—but not yet accredited—are included in the sum, total undergraduate enrolment rises to 83,953 students. Chart 1.1 illustrates undergraduate enrolment numbers for engineering institutions that consecutively replied to this survey since 2013.

Total undergraduate student enrolment by discipline

The most popular undergraduate engineering disciplines in 2017 were mechanical engineering, civil engineering, and electrical engineering, representing 22.1 per cent, 14.1 per cent, and 13.6 per cent of total undergraduate enrolment, respectively. On the other hand, the fields that accounted for the smallest proportion of undergraduate enrolment were geological engineering (0.8 per cent), materials or metallurgical engineering (1.1 per cent), and mining or mineral engineering (1.2 per cent).

Computer engineering (12.1 per cent), environmental engineering (11.2 per cent), and software engineering (8.9 per cent), presented the highest growth rate over the previous year. Likewise, the disciplines that experienced the largest cumulative growth from 2013 were software engineering (67.8 per cent), biosystems engineering (67.1 per cent), and computer engineering (56.7 per cent). Conversely, mining or mineral engineering (-22.5 per cent), geological engineering (-12.4 per cent), and materials or metallurgical engineering (-7.3 per cent) had the greatest rate of decline from the previous year. Additionally, only three disciplines presented a decline in enrolment since 2013: mining or mineral engineering (-25.8 per cent), geological engineering (-10.5 per cent), and materials or metallurgical engineering (-3.6 per cent). Once again, these comparisons were made between institutions that consecutively replied to the enrolment and degrees awarded survey since 2013.

Female students

Female undergraduate enrolment

Female enrolment remained above 20 per cent in 2017, with a 0.9 percentage point increase from 20.9 per cent in 2016 to 21.8 per cent in 2017. This is the highest proportion of females enrolled in undergraduate engineering programs ever recorded by this report. The total number of females enrolled in undergraduate-level engineering programs has increased by 3.7 per cent since 2016 and 32.2 per cent since 2013.

Chart 2.1 - Female undergraduate enrolment (1991-2017, full-time equivalent)
Chart 2.1 - Female undergraduate enrolment (1991-2017, full-time equivalent)

Female undergraduate enrolment by discipline

The disciplines that presented the highest percentages of female undergraduate enrolment in 2017 were biosystems engineering, environmental engineering, and chemical engineering, with 47.5 per cent, 41.2 per cent, and 39.3 per cent of total enrolment, respectively. Four out of the five disciplines with the highest percentage of females enrolled were also four out of the five disciplines with the least number of undergraduate students enrolled (see Chart 2.2).

The disciplines with the lowest percentages of female undergraduate enrolment were mechanical engineering (14.2 per cent), software engineering (14.6 per cent), and computer engineering (14.8 per cent). While these three disciplines account for 55.1 per cent of the total number of undergraduate students, they only account for 23.5 per cent of the total number of female undergraduate students.

Furthermore, the disciplines that presented the highest growth in the proportion of females from 2016 were chemical engineering and materials or metallurgical engineering, which rose from 36.8 per cent and 31.6 per cent in 2016, to 39.3 per cent and 33.1 per cent in 2017, respectively. Similarly, the disciplines that presented the highest growth in the proportion of females from 2013 were again materials and metallurgical engineering and chemical engineering, which went from 24.5 per cent and 32.8 per cent in 2013, to 33.1 per cent and 39.3 per cent in 2017, respectively.

Female undergraduate degrees awarded

Of the 15,782 engineering degrees awarded in 2017, 3,244 were awarded to women, accounting for 20.6 per cent of the sampled population. When comparing engineering programs that consecutively replied to this survey, increases of 11.9 per cent from 2016 and 34.7 per cent from 2013 were observed. Furthermore, this proportion is not suggestive of any significant gender differences in completion rates when compared to the 20.1 per cent average proportion of women in undergraduate enrolment over the past five years.

Chart 2.6 - Undergraduate  degrees awarded to female students (2013-2017)
Chart 2.6 - Undergraduate degrees awarded to female students (2013-2017)

The province with the highest proportion of female undergraduate degrees awarded was Newfoundland and Labrador (27.6 per cent), followed by Nova Scotia (22.3 per cent), and Alberta (21.9 per cent). Moreover, Newfoundland and Labrador had the greatest increase in the proportion of female undergraduate degrees awarded when compared to 2016, with a growth of 10.4 percentage points overall.

Chart 2.7 - Undergraduate  degrees awarded to female students by province (2017)
Chart 2.7 - Undergraduate degrees awarded to female students by province (2017)

The disciplines that had the highest growth over the previous year in the proportion of female undergraduate degrees awarded were that of environmental engineering (8.7 percentage points, going from 39.7 per cent in 2016 to 48.3 per cent in 2017) and biosystems engineering (3.3 percentage points, going from 42.5 per cent in 2016 to 45.8 per cent in 2017). Likewise, the categories that presented the highest growth from 2013 were that of environmental engineering (8.0 percentage points, going from 40.3 per cent in 2013 to 48.3 per cent in 2017) and industrial or manufacturing engineering (7.5 percentage points, going from 20.3 per cent in 2013 to 27.8 per cent in 2017).

The proportion of female undergraduate degrees awarded should experience a consistent growth in the coming years to the cumulative increase in the proportion of female undergraduate enrolment in many disciplines, as illustrated in Chart 2.3. This should be especially reflected in the disciplines of environmental engineering, industrial or manufacturing engineering, and chemical engineering.

Indigenous peoples’ enrolment and degrees awarded

Out of the 23 post-secondary institutions that responded to this survey about Indigenous peoples, 22 institutions were able to provide information on Indigenous peoples' undergraduate enrolment, while only 20 were able to provide information on undergraduate degrees awarded. The 22 institutions represent 44.2 per cent of undergraduate students enrolled in engineering programs across Canada, while the 20 post-secondary institutions represent 44.1 per cent of undergraduate degrees awarded. Furthermore, 20 institutions were able to present data on Indigenous enrolment in graduate programs, with only 18 of them presenting data on post-graduate degrees awarded. These 20 institutions represent 44.7 per cent of post-graduate students in Canada, whereas the 18 post-secondary institutions represent 41.8 per cent of post-graduate degrees awarded. As the reported numbers are of small magnitude, the data on Indigenous student enrolment is presented in a cumulative form to assure anonymity. While not all institutions are able to report the Indigenous identity of their students, Engineers Canada believes this data allows the engineering community to pursue conversations on increasing the representation of Indigenous peoples in engineering. Even if we cannot currently achieve a comprehensive and true representation of Indigenous peoples' enrolment and degrees awarded, this provides us with an important starting point.

While Indigenous peoples make up 4.9 per cent of the Canadian population (Statistics Canada, 2017), they only account for 1.2 per cent of total undergraduate enrolment in engineering programs and 1.2 per cent of undergraduate degrees awarded. Graduate student enrolment demonstrated lower enrolment of Indigenous peoples, at 0.4 per cent of total enrolment, while graduate degrees awarded represented 0.2 per cent of surveyed students.

Faculty members

There was a total of 3,990 full-time equivalent engineering faculty members in 2017. When comparing institutions that consecutively replied to this survey since 2013, the number of full-time equivalent faculty members remained nearly constant from 2016 and increased by 5.9 per cent from 2013.

Chart 5.1 - Faculty members by position and gender (2017, full-time equivalent)
Chart 5.1 - Faculty members by position and gender (2017, full-time equivalent)

The percentage of female faculty members has increased from 13.4 per cent in 2013 and 14.9 per cent in 2016, to 15.5 per cent in 2017. The faculty position with the highest percentage of females was that of assistant professors (23.0 per cent), whereas the position with the lowest percentage was that of professor (11.2 per cent).

Chart 5.3 - Proportion of female faculty members (2007-2017, full-time equivalent)

As the number of female faculty members remains a small proportion of all faculties, Engineers Canada advises readers to use caution when drawing conclusions from year-to-year variation. Small inaccuracies in the reported data as well as changes in programming will affect the percentage presented in Chart 5.3.

Accredited engineering programs by institution

  1. This listing of accredited programs includes only engineering programs that lead to a bachelor’s degree.
  2. Institutions listed have voluntarily requested that specific engineering programs be evaluated by the Accreditation Board. The terminology requested by the institution is shown.
  3. A single date which follows the name of a program indicates the year of the first graduating class for which accreditation applies. Accreditation applies to subsequent years and is still enforced.
  4. A double date following the name of a program indicates the period (inclusive of both years) for which the program was accredited. This may occur if the institution has discontinued the program under that specific name or has not requested renewal of accreditation or if the Accreditation Board has denied such renewal.
  5. The appearance of a third date indicates that accreditation has been renewed from that particular year on, after a time interval.

Year One/Two Common Year   

  • Undeclared Major Engineering
  • Year One - Common

The discipline Engineering Science (E.Sci.) involves science-intensive studies in engineering physics, engineering bioscience, engineering chemistry and other specializations offered by universities with accredited engineering science programs.

Several universities in Canada have common first-year and, in some cases, second-year programs. Students in these programs do not declare a discipline of study in their first year or, as applicable, second year. The total number of students in common first-, second- and qualifying-year programs have been separated from the “Other” category, beginning with the 1997 data. This subdivision will be continued in future years.

Associated universities explained

Dalhousie University, Royal Military College of Canada (RMC), and Associated Universities

The bachelor of engineering degree awarded by Dalhousie University is normally conferred in association with one of several associated universities. The program of study is divided into two parts: the associated universities offer programs in engineering covering the first part of the requirements for the degree and the Faculty of Engineering at Dalhousie offers courses in several departments of engineering covering the second part. There are other higher education institutions in Canada that operate under this model. Under the Accreditation Board's regulations for granting credits, a formally documented validation procedure must be in place.

Some of the associated universities include the following:

  • Acadia University
  • University of Cape Breton
  • Dalhousie University
  • Mount Allison University (as of 2000, no longer offering engineering programs)
  • Nova Scotia Agricultural College
  • St. Francis Xavier University
  • Saint Mary’s University
