Disruptors & Dilemmas – Net Zero – Not a Zero-Sum Game: Canada’s Opportunities in a Climate Positive Energy Transition @ Online event
Nov 24 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Disruptors & Dilemmas

5:30 p.m. – Virtual event opens
5:40 p.m. – Disruptors & Dilemmas panel
6:40 p.m. – Q&A
7:00 p.m. – Event ends

Join us for a special edition of the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering’s Disruptors & Dilemmas speaker series, featuring alumni and faculty from U of T Engineering, U of T Arts & Science, University of Toronto Mississauga & University of Toronto Scarborough.

Creating a climate-positive future is a grand challenge of our time and one that is especially relevant to Canada as a major energy producer and exporter. Disruptors & Dilemmas asks a multi-disciplinary panel of experts in engineering, management, philosophy and political science whether the transition to Net Zero will be a zero-sum game for Canada or whether there is a better path economically, socially and politically. To join the conversation, register here today.

This free virtual speaker panel will be moderated by Claire Kennedy, Former Chair of University of Toronto’s Governing Council.

Guests will be invited to engage in Q&A with the panelists following the discussion.

Skule Lunch & Learn presents Something from Nothing: The Practice and Promise of 3D Printing @ Online event
Dec 1 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

U of T Engineering Lunch & Learn Join us this month as former EngSci Chair, Professor Mark Kortschot (EngSci 8T4), highlights the key principles of 3D printing and addresses the possible benefits and limitations of this family of techniques.

Industrial designers have used 3D printing technology for almost 35 years to build prototypes of their designs, but the field has expanded dramatically over the past ten years. Now, 3D printers are used to produce a wide variety of things, including airplane parts, buildings, custom prosthetics, edible pastries, and more.

In this talk, Professor Kortschot will talk about the range of advanced materials now being used to print load-bearing parts, which has been the focus of his research over the past five years. He will also talk about the home hobbyist market, which has exploded recently due to the expiration of key technology patents.

To illustrate exactly what is involved, Professor Kortschot will present a live demonstration during the Lunch & Learn presentation. He will design a small part in a computer-aided design program on camera, create the printing file, and send it to the desktop printer in his office to show how easy the process is.
