A Message from Dean Cristina Amon


At U of T Engineering, our growing entrepreneurial ecosystem offers rich opportunities for students and researchers to develop their ideas from concept to startup. New businesses launched from our Faculty address critical global challenges and enhance people’s lives, from the most energy-efficient light bulb on the planet to lab-grown human heart tissue.
 
We have created many opportunities for students to combine technical and business competencies, such as our Engineering Business Minor and our Certificate in Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Small Business for undergraduates, and our Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Innovation & Technology in Engineering (ELITE) certificate for professional master’s degree candidates. Our two startup accelerators, The Entrepreneurship Hatchery and Start@UTIAS, provide mentoring, networking opportunities, space and other resources, and are a key part of the larger U of T entrepreneurship ecosystem. And the Institute for Leadership Education in Engineering (ILead) challenges students to develop leadership competencies that are critical to entrepreneurship through co-curricular activities such as Leadership Labs and The Game.
 
Our world-class research results in innovative solutions that drive the creation of new companies. In the past five years alone, our researchers have launched more than 25 research-based startups, such as QD Solar and Arrowonics. We also enable outstanding graduate students to commercialize their research through the Heffernan Commercialization Fellowships.
 
When the Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CEIE) opens next year, it will become a vibrant hub for entrepreneurship across our U of T Engineering community. With state-of-the-art design/meet rooms, rapid prototyping and fabrication facilities, and spaces where students, faculty members, alumni and industry partners will come together across disciplines, the CEIE will provide the ideal environment to bring game-changing innovations to market.

Thank you for your commitment to supporting the entrepreneurship and innovations that make our Faculty one of the finest engineering schools in the world.
 
— Cristina
