Guided Engineering Academic Review Sessions (GEARS) @ Online event
Dec 4 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

GEARS is a great opportunity to connect with upper year EngScis who can answer questions related to your courses, the Engineering Science program and opportunities within Engineering and the University. GEARS Mentors represent different Majors, clubs & societies – some have completed PEY or done summer research at U of T or abroad. Virtual sessions are drop-in, so arrive when you can and stay for as long as you’d like.

What are the benefits of attending GEARS?

  • Successful upper-year students provide guidance and support as you transition from high school into Engineering Science.
  • Build a sense of community. Get to know your classmates and meet upper-year students.
  • Develop key academic skills. Learn to integrate how to learn with what you need to learn to solve problems.
  • All sessions are drop-in, no registration required. Unable to attend an entire session? Join GEARS for part of one.
  • Judgement-free zone. No marks are issued and your attendance is not reported to your instructors.

Tri-campus National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women @ Online Event
Dec 6 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

This year marks the 32nd anniversary of the École Polytechnique massacre, the deadliest mass shooting in Canadian history. The 14 victims, 12 of whom were engineering students, were targeted because they were women in an engineering school. The anniversary of the tragedy has since become a day of remembrance and action against the many ways women continue to experience harm, violence and discrimination — particularly among girls, Indigenous women, two-spirit people, Black women, trans women, racialized women, and women in STEM.

On Monday, December 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET, we invite students, staff, faculty, librarians, alumni and partners to attend a virtual, tri-campus commemoration of this important day. The event includes a memorial and panel discussion about the rise of gender-based violence during COVID-19, and how we can integrate prevention strategies into our pandemic recovery. Together, we will re-commit ourselves to reflection, awareness and putting an end to gender-based violence.

Take action and register today at uoft.me/NDRAVW.

This event is co-hosted by the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, Community Safety Office, Sexual and Gender Diversity Office, Sexual Violence Prevention and Support Centre and Hart House.

#MyActionsMatterProgram

  • Opening Remarks
  • Award Presentation for Scholarly Achievement in the Area of Gender-Based Violence
  • Memorial and Reflection
  • Musical Performance by Skule™ Orchestra

Over the 14 days leading up to December 6, U of T Engineering will share one action a day towards ending gender-based discrimination and violence. Join the conversation using #MyActionsMatter.
