Third Annual Micro Steam Car Competition: The micro steam car design project is part of the thermodynamics course for second and third year mechanical engineering students. Students design and build a car approximately 30 cm long powered by a soda-can water boiler, a pin-sized nozzle and a turbine which drives the front wheels.

Accreditation Assessment System (AAS)
The Attribute Assessment System (AAS) web application enables the recording of graduate attribute assessment as required by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. For the purposes of the AAS system, each term, every department assigns a set of courses that measure graduate attributes. These courses are said to participate in the AAS system. For each participating course, the department specifies which attributes are assessed in that course.
