It is our vision - Sōhkēyimowin - to provide meaningful access to engineering for Indigenous students and to increase representation of First Nations, Métis and Inuit students in our college and the engineering profession.
We celebrate and share Indigenous ways of knowing as an integral part of teaching, learning and research at USask Engineering.
If you're a First Nations, Inuit or Métis student who wants to become an engineer you can reach your goal at USask Engineering. Be what the world needs and become a USask Engineer.

Indigenous student experience
Indigenous Student Ambassador Program
Our Indigenous Student Ambassadors provide academic and peer support to Indigenous students in the College of Engineering. They coordinate regular, non-academic support and social events and develop supportive relationships with their peers. They also lead participation in the student-led USask Chapter of AISES (American Indian Science & Engineering Society).
Indigenous Resource Centre
As a student, you will have access to the Indigenous Resource Centre, a physical and virtual space in the College of Engineering. Through the centre, we are committed to developing and promoting Indigenous resources, events and activities as educational tools for everyone in the college.
Our goal is to create culturally safe spaces for Indigenous students, where Indigenous ways of knowing are recognized and celebrated.
We celebrate and acknowledges Indigenous student educational milestones. This includes celebrating Indigenous students with events held throughout the year, such as the Indigenous Graduation Banquet and Indigenous Achievement Week.
