A Message from Dean Cristina Amon

At U of T Engineering, we provide boundless opportunities for our students to learn through experience. Our extensive extracurricular activities, innovative co-curricular programming and many hands-on courses enable students to address global challenges and develop professional competencies involving teamwork, leadership and effective communication.
For example, our Faculty offers more than 80 engineering clubs, including the U of T Supermileage Team who recently won first place at the Shell Eco-marathon. We encourage students to collaborate across disciplines and with industry through initiatives such as the Multidisciplinary Capstone Projects course. Engaging internships in the PEY program, leadership education at ILead and entrepreneurial activities through the Hatchery are just a few of the many opportunities students have to apply their knowledge in and beyond the campus environment.
In the time ahead, I look forward to the emerging opportunities for experiential learning enabled by the Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship, as we continue to reimagine engineering education together, with a synergistic blend of Technology Enhanced Active Learning and dynamic problem solving.
- Cristina
