The University of Ottawa was founded in 1848 and chartered in 1866; science and engineering were rapidly included in its fields of instruction. As early as 1874, the University bolstered the mathematics and science components of its classical studies program which, however, had to be abolished shortly afterwards. After the Second World War, the University kept in step with the new rise in popularity of the pure and applied sciences by establishing the School of Applied Sciences.

In 1953, it created the School of Pure and Applied Sciences, which was given faculty status in 1962. This first faculty was composed of seven departments, two of which in engineering. Ten years later, it counted four engineering departments and its name was changed to Faculty of Science and Engineering.

On July 1, 1986, the University opted for the establishment of both a Faculty of Science and a Faculty of Engineering, each with its own dean, professors, and programs. The Faculty of Engineering was then made up of four departments: Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.

On May 1, 1997, the Department of Computer Science joined the Faculty of Engineering from the Faculty of Science and was merged with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering to form the School of Information Technology and Engineering (SITE).

The Faculty of Engineering is currently composed of three departments (Chemical and Biological, Civil, and Mechanical Engineering) and of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

We assume the role of catalyst for the University of Ottawa to be recognized as a leader in teaching and learning.
