Kim AllenThe Enrolment and Degrees Awarded Report highlights strong growth in the number of students pursuing an engineering education.

During the 2015 academic year, undergraduate enrolment continued to increase and demonstrated strong growth in the number of students pursuing an engineering education. Undergraduate enrolment increased a total of 24 per cent from 2011, reaching a total of 81,287 students in 2015. From the 2014 academic year, undergraduate enrolment increased six per cent while postgraduate enrolment increased seven per cent, to reach 24,421 students. 

Canadian engineering programs continue to be a popular choice for international students. In 2015, the total number of undergraduate international students reached 13,001, accounting for 19 per cent of all undergraduate enrolments.  It is encouraging to see that the number of degrees awarded continues to grow along with student enrolment. A total of 14,577 degrees were awarded to undergraduate students in 2015, a hefty 24 per cent increase from 2011. There were also 7,678 master’s degrees awarded in 2015, reflecting an increase of 23 per cent from 2014 and a 72 per cent from 2011. The number of doctoral degrees awarded followed similar trends, increasing three per cent from 2014 and 37 per cent from 2011.

For the first time, Engineers Canada collected information in 2016 regarding Indigenous students’ enrolment and degrees awarded. In 2015, less than one per cent of undergraduate students identified as Indigenous.  Like the population of women in engineering programs, Indigenous peoples are significantly underrepresented. We will continue to track this information in the coming years to identify trends in Indigenous enrolment and degrees awarded.

Foreword

Each year, Engineers Canada gathers data on student enrolment and graduations from Canada’s higher education institutions. This report analyzes trends in engineering student enrolment within accredited engineering programs across the nation.

Understanding these trends enables Engineers Canada and other members of the profession to:

  • Compare patterns in the changing number of students who enrol in and graduate from the various engineering programs offered in the provinces
  • Assess the number of women, Indigenous peoples and international students who are pursuing engineering and education
  • Exchange pertinent information about similar and distinctly different trends across disciplines and institutions

Introduction

The Engineering Enrolment and Degrees Awarded Report is an annual examination of Canada's undergraduate and postgraduate engineering programs that evaluates trends in part- and full-time student enrolment and degrees awarded over a five-year period. In 2015, 49 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 postgraduate 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 doctoral levels are compared, along with men and women studying and graduating from engineering programs. In 2016, a series of questions regarding Indigenous peoples’ enrolment and graduation from engineering programs was piloted and results are 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.

Undergraduate student enrolment and degrees awarded

Undergraduate student enrolment

Undergraduate enrolment in accredited engineering programs has increased six per cent since 2014, and 24 per cent from 2011. In 2015, enrolment reached a total of 81,287 students in accredited engineering programs across Canada.

Chart 1.1 shows undergraduate enrolment in engineering programs, including students enrolled in unaccredited programs. The number of undergraduate engineering students in both accredited and unaccredited programs totaled 82,240 in 2015. This reflects an increase of seven per cent from 2014.

Undergraduate enrolment by program

Chart 1.2 illustrates the trends occurring in enrolment by program. Mechanical, civil and electrical engineering programs continue to have the highest shares of enrolment with 22 per cent, 16 per cent and 15 per cent, respectively; however, these are not thefastest growing programs.

Chart 1.2: Undergraduate enrolment by program 2011-2015

As shown in Chart 1.3, undergraduate enrolment in biosystems, software and mining or mineral engineering programs continue to grow the fastest, with an increase of 117 per cent, 85 per cent and 52 per cent, respectively, between 2011 and 2015. By contrast, enrolment in Year One/Two Common engineering programs continues to remain below 2011 levels,  declining14 per centsince 2011. However, it did see a 17 per cent increase in enrolment in 2015.

Undergraduate enrolment by province

Ontario continues to be the province with the highest proportion of undergraduate enrolment, making up 44 per cent of total enrolment, an increase of five per cent from 2014. Following Ontario, Quebec makes up 26 per cent of undergraduate enrolment, rising six per cent from 2014. Since 2011, Ontario and Quebec are growing the fastest, along with Manitoba, with increases of 30 per cent, 33 per cent and 32 per cent, respectively.

 Unlike in 2014, when Alberta saw the largest decrease in year-to-year enrolment, in 2015, Alberta had the highest increase, with an increase of 26 per cent over 2014. Taking Alberta’s place as the province with the largest decrease, enrolment in New Brunswick’s engineering programs decreased by nine per cent from 2011 to 2015 and by three per cent from 2014 to 2015.

For the third year in a row, Newfoundland and Labrador continues to have the highest percentage of female undergraduates with 26 per cent, increasing from 24 per cent in 2014. Prince Edward Island continues to be the province with the lowest percentage of female enrolment, where they make up only 11 per cent of the undergraduate engineering student population.

International students are enrolling in undergraduate engineering programs in greater amounts in Ontario (42 per cent), Quebec (24 per cent) and British Columbia (10 per cent).  This contrasts with last year’s enrolment, where international students were enrolling in the maritime provinces—Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

Undergraduate enrolment by gender

Female undergraduate enrolment follows similar trends with undergraduate student enrolment and continues to rise, reaching 16,297 undergraduate students, or 20 per cent of total enrolment, in 2015—a 12 per cent increase from 2014.

While the highest percentage of female undergraduate enrolment was in 2001, with 21 per cent of students, the percentages have been increasing at a rate about one per cent per year since 2008 (Chart 1.4). Should this trend continue, the percentage of female undergraduate students in 2016 should be on par with the 2001 numbers.

Chart 1.5 indicates that the top three disciplines with female enrolment are biosystems, environmental and geological engineering programs at 45 per cent, 41 per cent and 37 per cent, respectively. Even though these disciplines have the highest percentage of female enrolment, they do not have the highest female enrolment numbers. The civil (3,143), chemical (2,255) and mechanical (2,148) disciplines—have the largest female enrolment. The disciplines with the fewest number of females enrolled are computer, mechanical and software engineering at 12 per cent, or about  500 female students in each program.

As shown in Chart 1.6, there has been steady growth in female enrolment in disciplines from 2011 to 2015. The disciplines with the most cumulative growth are biosystems, with a growth of 153 per cent, and software engineering with a growth of 137 per cent. Conversely, not all disciplines are growing; the percentage difference from 2014 to 2015, particularly in mining or mineral engineering, environmental, and engineering physics, follow a different trend, with negative four per cent, negative one per cent and negative one per cent growth, respectively. These three disciplines saw smaller female enrolment numbers in 2015.

Undergraduate enrolment of international students

Chart 1.7 shows the number and proportion of international students, as well as the yearly growth in their enrolment.  In 2015, the total number of international students accounts for 19 per cent of all undergraduate enrolments, reaching 13,001 students. This number is an important increase from 2014, when international student enrolment was at 15 per cent, or 11,354 students. Nonetheless, this growth rate is still significantly lower than from 2012 to 2013, where the increase in international students accounted for more than 39.9 percent of the overall increase in engineering student enrolment. Thus, the overall trend indicates a slowing rate of international students enrolling in Canadian undergraduate engineering programs.

Undergraduate degrees awarded

The number of undergraduate degrees awarded increased by 24 per cent from 2011, reaching 14,577 students in 2015. As shown in Chart 1.8, the program with the most undergraduate degrees awarded is mechanical engineering with 3,634 degrees in 2015. The fastest growing undergraduate degrees awarded, from 2011 to 2015 are software engineering degrees (73 per cent increase), biosystems engineering degrees (54 per cent increase) and industrial or manufacturing engineering degrees (51 per cent increase).

Postgraduate enrolment and degrees awarded

Graduate student enrolment

Overall, postgraduate enrolment numbers increased seven per cent from 2014 to 2015 to 24,421 students. This is a dramatic increase compared to 2014 when the number of students enrolling declined 2.5 per cent from 2013 levels.

In 2015, master’s student enrolment increased while, in 2014, there was a decline at this level. The percentage of part-time master’s students continues to decline, only accounting for 12 per cent (1,812 students) of graduate students in 2015, compared to 19 per cent in 2011 (2,679). 

Following the trends of master's degrees, both full- and part-time doctoral student enrolment increased from 2014 and from 2011 reaching a total of 9,570 students. Chart 2.1 illustrates the trends in part-time and full-time enrolment in master’s and doctoral programs.

Charts 2.2 and 2.3 illustrate enrolment trends in both master’s and doctoral programs. Electrical engineering continues to have the most students enrolled in both levels, with 3,645 and 2,423 students, respectively. At both the master’s and doctoral levels, computer engineering has had the largest growth in student enrolment, with 19 per cent and 34 per cent, respectively.

Conversely, doctoral enrolment in geological engineering has decreased the most since 2014, with a  67 per cent decrease. Materials and metallurgical engineering has decreased one per cent at the doctoral level.  These trends are shown in Chart 2.4.

Postgraduate enrolment by gender

Trends in postgraduate enrolment by gender continue to stay mostly unchanged from 2014. There continues to be a higher proportion of female postgraduate enrolment (24 per cent) than undergraduate enrolment (20 per cent). Different from 2014, however, are the programs with the highest percentage of female enrolment. Electrical engineering has the highest percentage of female postgraduate enrolment with 23 percent, followed by civil engineering with 17 per cent and chemical with 12 per cent.

Postgraduate enrolment by international students

At 12,742 students, international students continue to account for over half of total postgraduate enrolment (57 per cent), increasing four per cent from 2014. While international student enrolment continues to increase, Canadian student enrolment in Canadian engineering programs continues to decrease, declining by three percent from 2014. Chart 2.7 illustrates that the growth in postgraduate enrolment from previous years is entirely the result of the increase in international students’ postgraduate enrolment, as Canadian postgraduate enrolment has been decreasing steadily.

Chart 2.7: Postgraduate Enrolment Of International Students 2011-2015

Postgraduate degrees awarded

In 2015, there were 7,678 master’s degrees awarded, reflecting an increase of 23 per cent from 2014 and a 72 per cent increase from 2011. Master’s degrees awarded to female students account for 25 per cent and are consistent with the average female master’s degree enrolment rate of 23 per cent over the five years covered in this report. Chart 2.8 reflects this consistency and does not indicate any difference in gender completion rates.

Undergraduate enrolment of Indigenous peoples

In 2016, a series of questions regarding Indigenous peoples’ enrolment and graduation from engineering programs was piloted. Chart 3.1 illustrates the enrolment and graduation of Indigenous students from Canadian engineering programs. Engineers Canada plans to continue this data collection in coming years to be able to identify relevant trends.

A total of 22 post-secondary institutions responded. Three of those were unable to find the information required to respond to the survey questions. Because of the small sample size, the information that is provided on Indigenous student enrolment is only provided in aggregate form to assure anonymity.

There were a total of 337 Indigenous students who enrolled in undergraduate studies and 147 that enrolled in a post-graduate program.  Indigenous peoples are 0.97 per cent of undergraduate enrolment and 0.76 per cent of post-graduate enrolment. Indigenous peoples make up more than 4.3 per cent of the Canadian population.

 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 

Endnotes

  1. I.‘Accredited programs’ are programs that are recognized by the Accreditation Board as meeting the educational standard required by candidates for a professional engineering licence.
  2. This section and all following sections refer only to enrolment in currently accredited programs.
  3. Graduates of programs at this institution may have completed additional non-technical studies, such as a management or society option, that will be listed on their transcripts. These transcripts contain wording such as “(Discipline) Engineering and Society” or “(Discipline) Engineering and Management.” Only the engineering component of these programs is accredited by the Accreditation Board; thus, even though these options meet the accreditation requirements, only the base engineering programs are listed here.
