A Message from Dean Cristina Amon


Engineering plays a critical role in meeting the rising global demand for clean and sustainable energy, materials and processes. Solutions to these challenges require creativity, innovation and collaboration across disciplines, all of which are hallmarks of our Faculty and our community.

U of T Engineering faculty members, students and alumni are developing a wide variety of clean technologies. We are designing more efficient light bulbs, converting waste CO2 into useful fuels and using microbes to clean up contaminated sites—research and innovation that is enabled not only by our multidisciplinary research institutes, but also by our thriving Engineering Alumni Network.

The forthcoming Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CEIE) will be a transformational hub for both research and education. Researchers, alumni, students and industry partners will benefit from access to the expertise at the Institute for Sustainable Energy, the Institute for Multidisciplinary Design & Innovation and the Institute for Water Innovation, among others. These collaborations will generate transformative solutions and translate them into commercially viable products and services.

The CEIE itself will feature many leading-edge sustainable technologies, including solar panels and passive heating and cooling, which will enhance the energy efficiency of the facility and provide new educational opportunities for students. It will be a place where our commitment to sustainability comes alive through experiential learning, co-curricular activities and meeting spaces for new ideas to flourish.

By innovating together, we are building a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable world.

— Cristina

It was leather weather this month for U of T Engineering!

Students flocked to the Sandford Fleming Atrium for the biannual leather jacket fittings—some even came prepared with club patches in hand.
