Our History

The department had two strong roots; one at Loyola College and the other at Sir George Williams University. Loyola College began an engineering certificate program in about 1943 and a full program with graduates in 1965. Sir George Williams University began a certificate program in about 1955 and an accredited program with graduates in 1968. Concordia University was created in 1974 upon the merger of these two institutions. Upon its foundation, the 3 professors from Loyola joined the 11 teachers in the accredited program at Sir George Williams. The department is now part of the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science.
