EngSci’s Praxis II Showcase will be open to the public this year.
Registration is required for guests who are not affiliated with the course.
At the Praxis II Showcase, student teams present and demonstrate their designs to stakeholders and the general public. Attendees will be able to ask questions and talk to the teams in small group chats.
Praxis II is a Year 1 course that allows Engineering Science students to refine and apply their engineering, design, and communication skills. The students are given a single challenge:
Effect a verified and validated sustainable improvement in the lived experience of a community.
Focusing on a community allows students to gain first-hand experience with the issues confronting real groups of people and to engage one-on-one with stakeholders and community representatives.
The course culminates in the public Praxis II Showcase. At the event, students share their refined understanding of their opportunity and their proposed engineering designs with a wide audience through posters, prototypes and presentations.
Media enquiries are welcome. Please visit the link above for contact information.
Congratulations to the graduating EngSci class of 2T3 and 2T2 PEY!
We look forward to celebrating this important milestone with you at Spring Convocation 2023.
Graduating students from the EngSci class of 2T3 and 2T2 PEY, join us for a special reception after your Convocation Ceremony!
The event will include award presentations and a chance to celebrate with classmates, family, professors, and staff.
Look for your invitation in your inbox in May!
Year 3, PEY and Year 4 EngSci students, are you thinking of applying to graduate school?
Join Professors Arthur Chan and Rob Irish for a special session to learn how to put your best foot forward with a strong personal statement.
This event has three components:
1. Watch three short video modules before the event—find them on the EngSci Info Hub’s Grad School Info page (UTORid login required):
- Understanding personal statements: What they are, and how to structure them
- Past experiences: Three example statements that show you how to decide what to include
- Future work, communication principles, and resources to help you
Once you’ve seen the videos, you probably have some questions about your specific situation, schools, and goals.
Come to the event to ask about how to make the best impression and build a convincing argument for yourself through your personal statement.
2. Ask a question before the event
After you have watched the videos, you can submit or upvote questions ahead of the event through Slido, event code #10oct2023. There will also be plenty of time to ask questions live during the event.
3. Attend the event
This event is open to upper year EngSci students. Register for the session here.
Thinking of going to graduate school after graduation?
Learn what you can get out of graduate studies. Get tips on how to find and choose a US graduate school, program and supervisor that’s right for you. Hear advice on how to navigate US graduate school application processes.
You can submit or upvote questions for Professor Nogami and Professor Hooper ahead of time through Slido event code #18oct2023.
There will also be plenty of time to ask questions live during the event.
