Until Next Time

We salute all our students this April for their tremendous achievements during the academic year. To our graduating class: we wish you the best as you reach for new heights in industry, in a graduate program, or in whatever path you choose. To our returning students: we hope your time away is spent pursuing opportunities of interest and that you return in the fall with renewed enthusiasm to face new challenges.

Between then and now, we'll be offering post-exam student services, summer course enrolment and fall/winter enrolment (with information sent to your inbox in July). Over the summer, U of T Engineering remains active by producing groundbreaking research with boundless applications that will infuse future courses with new discoveries worth teaching.

Did you know that course teaching evaluations are the #1 source for the Faculty to gain insights and make improvements to your courses? This term, take some time to reflect honestly and constructively on your courses and instructors. Join the “Your Feedback Matters” campaign and tell us how we can make your academic experience the best it can be.
