One of the most distinguished engineering programs in the world, Engineering Science (EngSci) is designed for students who are looking for an intense academic challenge. In your first two years, you’ll be immersed in engineering, math, science, computing and humanities. In your last two years, you’ll choose from one of eight majors for accelerated, discipline-specific learning. Our students thrive in a close-knit community of exceptional individuals, creating an enriched and unique learning environment.
UofT is one of the few institutions worldwide to offer a program that integrates enriched science fundamentals with engineering. The EngSci curriculum is nimble with dynamic majors that evolve and anticipate emerging technologies.
