A Message from Dean Cristina Amon


We prepare our students to be engineering innovators and leaders both by developing their technical competencies and by providing them with rich opportunities to apply their knowledge in context. These learning experiences take many forms, from addressing critical challenges with external partners to launching startups which bring innovations to market. In these efforts, we support our students through mentorship from our faculty and vibrant global alumni network.

In courses and co-curricular activities, our undergraduate students partner with industry and community groups to create engineering innovations. For example, Xposure, an app developed through our Multidisciplinary Capstone Design course, enables firefighters in Hamilton and other jurisdictions to take control of their health by tracking exposure to hazardous substances. This and many other examples illustrate the power we have in engineering to bring about positive change.

The forthcoming Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CEIE) will provide state-of-the-art facilities to further catalyze our world-leading interdisciplinary research, entrepreneurship and experiential learning. It will provide a fabrication arena for student clubs, prototyping spaces, and a new home for The Entrepreneurship Hatchery with the expanded goal of accelerating research-based endeavours.

The CEIE will also include technology-enhanced active learning (TEAL) rooms, design studios and an interactive auditorium. I encourage you to consider applying to the Engineering Instructional Innovation Program and the TEAL Fellows Program, which support pedagogical innovations that leverage these resources.

I look forward to fostering these initiatives, and to working with all of you as we continue to nurture the next generation of global engineering leaders.

— Cristina
