A Message from Dean Cristina Amon
Each year, National Engineering Month provides an opportunity to celebrate the tremendous contributions of engineers throughout the world. At U of T Engineering, it also allows us to highlight the innovation and impact of our faculty and students.
Since 2009, the Faculty has created nine Extra-Departmental Units (EDU:Cs) that capitalize on emerging research areas and our multidisciplinary strengths. These centres and institutes spur new collaborations across our Faculty, the University, industrial partners and beyond:
The wealth of collaborations at U of T Engineering continues to enrich our environment by encouraging diverse perspectives and innovative thinking. The recent Women in Science & Engineering (WISE) National Conference stimulated dialogue to inspire women in our field. Groups like the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) celebrate diversity on campus. And our Faculty's involvement in the Brazilian Science without Borders (SwB) program – which just expanded to include PhD students for next year – help forge international bonds.
As this year's National Engineering Month comes to a close, I would like to express my great pride in the accomplishments of our faculty, students and alumni and the impact they are making on the world today and in the future.
