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.

Whether they volunteer to help Toronto’s homeless, participate in student government, gain international experience through Engineers Without Borders (EWB) or share their musical talents, this new generation of engineers envisions the future on all fronts and applies 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.

To all the upcoming graduates, congratulations on four or more years of hard work and accomplishment. We wish you continued success in your future paths and look forward to hearing from you. To our returning students, may your summers be restful and productive. The Engineering Student e-News returns in August for another academic year.
