Experiential Learning in Engineering Education: “A Golden Age for Makers”

In society, the growing demands placed on individuals are becoming increasingly more complex and challenging to handle. However, hands-on learning opportunities can help prepare students with the competencies required to devise effective solutions to real-world problems.In January 2022, the Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto, in collaboration with Professor Sean Hum, launched an exciting new second-year course, ECE295 – Hardware Design and Communication, which has students working in teams to design, build and test a complete electronic system from scratch.“Students are involved from the conceptual and computer-aided design right down to the mounting of components on the circuit boards, as well as using a variety of modern test and measurement equipment and debugging their designs,” Professor Sean Hum says. “That end-to-end experience isn’t available at other universities — not at the second-year level.”Join us on April 5 at the Faculty Club to hear Professor Sean Hum share his rationale for implementing this innovative new course in our curriculum and how it advances student success.Guests will have an opportunity to network with some of the talented students from ECE295 and to to view some of the final hardware design products created by the students themselves!

The global health care landscape is facing unprecedented challenges, including an aging population, increasing rates of chronic disease and workforce shortages. The need for efficient, equitable and patient-centered systems has never been more important.  

Artificial intelligence has the potential to revolutionize health care by optimizing workflows, improving diagnostics, creating personalized treatment plans and paving the way for novel applications such as virtual assistants, robotic surgery and predictive analytics.  

How is artificial intelligence already being used and what new applications are being explored? What challenges and biases exist for implementation in our current systems? Join us as three experts weigh in on how AI is shaping the future of health care and how interdisciplinary collaboration is key to driving innovation.

This event is co-hosted by: University of Toronto Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, Faculty of Arts & Science, Rotman School of Management, and Temerty Faculty of Medicine
