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.
Are you a new first-year international EngSci student? The First Year E-Buddy Program is here to support you with your transition to the Faculty and the University!
E-Buddies are upper-year engineering peer mentors who will provide support by answering questions about life at U of T Engineering, sharing their experiences, and providing information about campus resources. They will also provide informal programming and events to build community amongst international students, as well as provide support through structured workshops and events.
All first-year international U of T Engineering students are eligible to participate in this program.
