Each institution practices different methods for counting affiliates, from generous counting to conservative.  Within this list, the University Counts are thus shown as comparison, which are published by the universities themselves. The federal University of London is counted by its individual constituent colleges in this table. The University of California is also counted here by its individual campuses. Finally, this list, together with List of Fields Medal winners by university affiliation and List of Turing Award laureates by university affiliation , presents the university affiliation (with similar criteria) of people who have won highest honors in fundamental academic disciplines.
St. Francis Xavier University (St.) provides a highly acclaimed environment for engineering studies. Our professional program leads to the award of the Bachelor of Engineering degree which is conferred by the Faculty of Engineering at Dalhousie University in Halifax. The first two years of the program are taken at St. during which time our students receive a broad based and balanced education. Our students are required to take courses in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics, chemistry, and electives from the humanities and social sciences. Upon successful completion of the two years, students are awarded the Diploma in Engineering, in addition to receiving the X-ring, and are guaranteed admission to Dalhousie University for the final two years of study leading to the Bachelor of Engineering degree in Biological, Civil, Chemical, Computer, Electrical, Industrial, Mechanical, Metallurgical or Mining Engineering. Students who prefer to attend another University can transfer the credits earned at St. to any university in Canada as our program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.
