Our Engineering Science Research Opportunities Program (ESROP) was created to harness and channel the enthusiasm that Engineering Science students have for research

It provides funding and placements for EngSci students who would like to spend a summer conducting research.

If you are a faculty member or researcher who is interested in hosting a student and would like to learn more, please contact our Curriculum Officer, Scott Sleeth, at curric.engsci@utoronto.ca.

Mentor a student

Since 2005, the Alumni Mentorship Program (AMP) has fostered valuable relationships between Skule™ alumni and students. Alumni Mentors share their knowledge and experience and provide students with the encouragement and insights they need to get a great start to their careers and begin to set a course for the future.

The program runs throughout the academic year.

Alumni are welcome to join the AMP at any time. Mentors who are not matched with a mentee formally in October will be called upon over a dozen times throughout the year for one-off events related to mentoring students in a professional development setting.

Students' can join the program each fall.

See full program details here.

Hire a student or fellow graduate

The Engineering Career Centre (ECC) helps employers connect with current students and recent graduates for PEY Co-op placements, summer jobs, and full-time positions after graduation.   The ECC can also arrange for employer info sessions to help raise your company's profile among students.

Alumni can also post job openings on the jobs board in U of T Engineering CONNECT to reach over 11,000 alumni and students.

If you'd like to publicize your job openings to EngSci students specifically, please contact our External Relations Officer, Christina Heidorn, at engsci@utoronto.ca.
