A Message from Dean Cristina Amon


As another year comes to a close, this is the time to reflect on and celebrate all we have accomplished together.
 
We have recently completed three reports that demonstrate our remarkable progress: our Annual Report of Performance Indicators, our Academic Plan 2011–2016 Final Report on Progress and Achievements, and our Faculty Self-Study, which will inform the development of our next academic plan. These reports also highlight the excellence of our educational programs, the impact of our research and the strength of our global community of students, faculty, staff and alumni.
 
We continue to attract brilliant students and faculty members from across Canada and around the world. Our researchers are addressing challenges that transcend the boundaries of traditional engineering disciplines, from developing new technologies for sustainable energy and smart cities to creating innovative and life-saving medical devices.
 
We have much to look forward in 2017 as we further enrich our programs with a focus on global fluency and experiential learning. One example is our new undergraduate certificate in Forensic Engineering, to be offered for the first time next fall. In January, our Faculty will welcome the external review team who will assess our progress and help shape our future direction.
 
As you have likely seen, the forthcoming Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CEIE) has now risen above the graffiti art mural that surrounds it. When complete, the CEIE will set a new standard for engineering education, innovation and research by providing technology-enhanced, flexible spaces for cross-disciplinary collaboration, experiential learning and entrepreneurship.
 
Thank you for the dedication and commitment to excellence you brought to our Faculty in the past year. I wish you a blessed holiday season and a happy start to 2017.


 
— Cristina

U of T Engineering students built a powerful tribute outside of Sandford Fleming for the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.  

The silhouettes commemorate the 14 women who were killed in the tragedy at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal on December 6, 1989.
