The Engineering Science Research Opportunities Program (ESROP)
was created to harness and channel the enthusiasm that the Engineering Science students have for research by providing them, early in their academic careers, with the opportunity to work with faculty members on research-based intellectual collaborations over the course of the summer. Through ESROP, EngSci students will join established research groups, gain an understanding of the research process, and take part in intellectually vibrant research activities. Read about our student's recent 2012 summer research experiences:
Harris Chan (1T5)
Charlie Guan (1T5)

Tatsuhiro Onodera (1T4)Paolo Piguing (1T4)Adam Rosenfield (1T4)Behraz Vatankhahghadim (1T4)Tongbin (Tom) Wu (1T4) Wendy Xiang (1T5)
Approximately ten ESROP fellowships are granted exclusively to Engineering Science students who are seeking a summer research project (May to August).
Student eligibility: completing first or second year of the Engineering Science program
Students are encouraged to approach teaching faculty at the University of Toronto or elsewhere to secure a supervisor.
ESROP value: $3,000, plus an equal or greater salary contribution from the research supervisor (required).
Successful applicants must provide a two-page written report to the Division of Engineering Science at the end of the summer summarizing their research experience.
