We are delighted to welcome Professor Deepa Kundur (ECE) to the role of EngSci Division Chair, starting in January 2017.  She succeeds Professor Mark Kortschot (ChemE), whose five-year term came to and end in 2016.

Professor Kundur is an expert on cyber security and smart grids who previously served as Associate Chair for the Division.  As a U of T Engineering graduate herself, she brings a great dedication to teaching excellence to the job.

Read about her vision for the program’s next five years, the challenges ahead, and why she thinks EngSci students are ‘fearless’?
