New Horizons

Leadership in innovation is essential to our global prosperity. At the University of Toronto, our Engineers and Engineering alumni are at the forefront of translating ideas into technology that will foster economic growth, improve our quality of life, and address the great challenges of our time.

As we enter a new decade, exciting opportunities lie ahead involving rapidly emerging fields, such as information systems, bioengineering and nanotechnology. This issue of our Alumni e-News features several of our faculty whose research will affect our everyday lives, even before this decade draws to a close.

Our alumni are found in a variety of industries and sustain our Faculty's reputation. From new wireless companies to renowned artistic talents, our alumni strive to make their unique mark in the world. We want to hear more about our alumni's successes. If you know an alum whose success inspires others or you want to share your story, please contact us.
