Student Leadership

Industry and peer institutions around the world value and seek-out our students’ exceptional technical strengths and analytical capabilities. U of T Engineering students further distinguish themselves with their creativity and innovative spirit. They pursue roles that make impactful contributions at local, national and global levels. They are our future engineering leaders – and the future is promising.

In 2009-2010, our Faculty welcomed over 1,215 extraordinary First-Year students, with an entering average of 88.9%. Whether they volunteer to help Toronto’s homeless, participate in student government, gain international experience through Engineers Without Borders (EWB) or share their musical gifts, this new generation of engineers envision the future on all fronts and apply their creativity and sound technical skills to shape our future.

We take great pride in the achievements of our student leaders, who generously share their time and talents to build a better world.
