In Canada, 13 self-governing associations regulate Engineering and Geoscience. In Saskatchewan, the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) administer the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act.
All people who are practicing engineering or geoscience in Saskatchewan must be registered by APEGS. For more information on APEGS please see web site www.apegs.sk.ca. This web site contains a lot of information on APEGS, The Act and the Association’s Bylaws. It also has links to all of the other provincial associations and to the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers (CCPE) and the Canadian Council of Professional Geoscientists (CCPG).
The UILO "is an initiative of the City of Regina and the University of Regina to promote research collaborations and partnering opportunities involving intellectual property and to build focused working relationships between the University and the business communities in our region, our country and internationally. Universities share their expertise with private and public organizations to enhance the development of the communities that generously support the primary missions of teaching and scholarly research" (UILO). For more information visit the UILO's website.
UILO provides evaluation of inventions for commercial potential and assists with developing a unique commercialization plan, including:
- Evaluating technical, intellectual property (IP) and market potential
- Seeking appropriate IP protection (i.e. patent, trademark, copyright, etc.)
- Drafting patent applications
- Stimulating further research on the invention
- Marketing inventive concepts to industry
- Formulating development plans
- Negotiating various agreements with partners
- Monitoring progress on agreements and royalty revenues
The IEEE is a non-profit, technical professional association of electrical and electronics engineers. U of R membership is affiliated with the South Saskatchewan Section.

The CO2-research.ca/">International Test Centre for CO2 Capture is one of only a handful of R&D centres devoted to the development of industrial CO2 capture technologies, and it is the only one of its scale operated by a centre of higher learning. ITC is one of the most advanced research laboratories in the world and provides a unique R&D opportunity for engineers, scientists, and researchers studying and/or developing technologies for carbon dioxide emissions reduction. ITC is the only centre in the world where you can find a complete range of CO2 capture research capacity:
- A semi-commercial scale Technology Demonstration Plant attached to a coal-fired power generating station.
- A multi-purpose Technology Development Pilot Plant.
- Bench scale units for fundamental research.
- Facilities supported by top-level analytical and computer facilities with trained staff.
ITC is funded by both industry and government, and operates both individual industry or academic research projects and large-scale industry-government-academic research consortium programs. ITC technologies have been licensed by:
HTC Purenergy - one of the world's leading carbon management technology providers.
The ITC also provides the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science graduate and undergraduate students with hands-on experience in Process Systems Engineering. Visit our web site: www.CO2-research.ca. See also our Research page for information about ITC's research.
The Petroleum Technology Research Centre (PTRC) is a non-profit petroleum research and development corporation located in Regina, Saskatchewan. The PTRC is a collaborative initiative of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), Saskatchewan Ministry of Energy and Resources, the University of Regina (Petroleum Systems Engineering), and the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC).
The PTRC has financial support from the federal and provincial governments to sponsor research and development projects. PTRC initiates and supports industry lead and sponsored R&D projects aimed at enhancing the production and recovery of Canadian petroleum primarily through the expertise of members of the Petroleum Systems Engineering faculty at the University of Regina and Saskatchewan Research Council.
PTRC manages a number of large-scale oil and gas-related R&D project including:
- The IEA GHG Weyburn-Midale CO2 Monitoring and Storage Project - the world's first and largest CO2 geological storage project.
- STEPS Business-led Network of Centres of Excellence - “Sustainable Technologies for Energy Production Systems” Enhanced Oil Recovery R&D Programs
- Aquistore - "A research project looking into capture of CO2 from a Regina refinery for storage in a Saskatchewan deep saline formation."
- JIVE - Joint Implementation of Vapour Extraction - developing vapour extraction technologies suitable for hard-to-produce "Saskatchewan-like" heavy oil reserves.
The CO2.com/Pages/Home.aspx">International Performance Assessment Centre for CO2 Geologic Storage (IPAC-CO2) is a not-for-profit research and development organization committed to providing independent, objective information, best practices, advice and assessments to governments and industry on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). IPAC-CO2 is a collaboration between Royal Dutch Shell, the Government of Saskatchewan, and the University of Regina.
TRLabs is Canada’s largest information and communications technology (ICT) R&D consortium. In Regina, TRLabs is located in Regina Research Park adjacent to the U of R campus. TRLabs supports IT and communication technology R&D conducted by researchers in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and the U of R department of Computer Science. See also our Research page for information about IT and Communication-related research.
The University of Regina is a member university of the Canadian Microelectronics Corporation (CMC). CMC provides hardware and software tools for chip and system level development projects. The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science currently has a fileserver with a SUN A1000 disk array, two SUNBlade workstations, and 13 PC-based FPGA development systems on loan from CMC.
Tools available through CMC are supplied by companies including:
SYNOPSYS Mentor Graphics XILINX SUN Microsystems IBM
