Paul Radcliffe

Paul Radcliffe has been working for over eight years in electrical engineering for the Toronto Transit Commission and currently holds the title of Design Engineer for Electrical / Traction Power. Paul says he had a lot of time on his hands after finishing EngSci and as a result decided to return to the University of Toronto part-time; he has since gotten his Master’s Degree from the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, a Certificate in Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Innovation and Technology in Engineering (ELITE), and completed a Collaborative Program in Environmental Engineering and Energy Systems. He is also proud to have published a paper in the proceedings of a national electrical engineering conference. Furthermore, Paul is a licensed Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) in the Province of Ontario, and has obtained his Project Management Professional (PMP) credential from the Project Management Institute (PMI).

Paul claims have had some unusual adventures since graduating. He dabbled in politics as a local political organizer, campaigner, and policy advisor. While he agrees that the experience was very eye-opening, he feels it has also left him a little cynical. Paul also claims to have been on a bit of a health kick for the past few years; he is currently training to run his 10th full marathon this fall in New York City and has also enjoyed being a part-time running coach for the past 2 years.

Paul offers his affirmation of the Engineering Science program:

“Today, we’re constantly bombarded and overloaded with information, so trying to absorb any of that data is like trying to drink from a fire hose on full blast. I can think of no better preparation for this environment than what I experienced in Engineering Science at the University of Toronto.”
