Join us for Fall Campus Week

Are you a high schools student considering studying in our program?

Sneak a peak at your future!

From October 23rd–30th, join U of T’s annual fall open house and learn what it’s like to make lifelong friends while making life-changing discoveries at the University of Toronto.

U of T Engineering programs, including Engineering Science, will be showcased on Saturday, October 23, with live interactive sessions.  Register for your spot today!

There’s so much to explore at the university. Have you heard about U of T Mississauga’s unique collection of 14,000+ games? Or the new, open-air academic resource quad that’s set to launch at U of T Scarborough, complete with shade sails, a fully equipped outdoor stage, accessible seating, and permaculture gardens? Have you heard about our 90+ mentorship programs, 10+ startup accelerators, or U of T St. George’s plans for a sparkling new Centre for Cultures, Civilizations, and Cities?

You can, very soon.

Starring a crackerjack cast of staff, students, and faculty from three world-class campuses, Fall Campus Week is your best chance to sample everything on tap at Canada’s #1 university. While we can’t open our doors to guests in person this year, we also can’t wait to host you online, answer your questions, and learn more about your future plans. So, let’s get you off to a great start.

After EngSci: Writing Strong Grad School Statements

Fourth year EngSci students, are you applying to graduate school this year?

  • 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 Prof. Chong 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
