The engineering profession is of critical importance to healthy, prosperous and dynamic cities. With high concentrations of people, systems and infrastructure, cities provide a wealth of complex challenges and opportunities for engineers across all disciplines.
In his recent Discussion Paper on Three Priorities for U of T, President Meric Gertler emphasized the importance of reaching out to local partners and strengthening the built environment of the city. Our Faculty has a strong history of improving the urban landscape through smarter infrastructures, more efficient transportation systems and innovative energy and waste management. One example is the Master of Engineering in Cities Engineering and Management program, which prepares students to address the multidisciplinary challenges faced by cities. Benefiting our community also means recognizing the role U of T Engineering plays in Toronto’s social and cultural environments.
Thanks to all who visited #CEIExSKAM, our street art installation at Scotiabank Nuit Blanche on October 3! Student volunteers engaged with hundreds of revelers from Toronto and beyond to share stories about our Faculty's proud history of innovation, education and entrepreneurship.
