Indigenous-Focused Programs

Queen's University Indigenous-focused Programs



Aboriginal Access to Engineering

Aboriginal Access to Engineering takes a multi-faceted approach to increasing the participation of the Aboriginal community in science, technology, engineering and math. The initiative provides on-campus student supports to undergraduate and graduate students in engineering, as well as an extensive outreach program, created specifically for Indigenous youth with culture at its' foundation.
