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!

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.
