The Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science is focused on practical, relevant research. We have several clear areas of focus - fields where we have proven strengths to which we are attracting top researchers, students, and industry partners. Each area involves multiple disciplines and has a direct impact on the communities around us, improving the quality of life and supporting economic well-being.

Energy

Energy

After more than a century of oil-driven economies, we are facing a new world — one where oil resources are limited and greenhouse gases must be reduced. FEAS researchers are exploring ways to optimize existing technologies, improve energy efficiency, and create alternative energy sources. Learn about the Faculty's Centre for Urban Energy (CUE).

Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering

More than ever before, technology is driving medical advances. FEAS researchers employ innovative ideas and technologies to improve medical imaging, diagnosis, and treatment. We've also partnered with St. Michael's Hospital and researchers in Ryerson's Faculty of Science to create the Institute for Biomedical Engineering, Science & Technology (iBEST).
