RSVP by November 5 to uoft.me/realtalk
You’re invited to a night of Real Talk with engineering alumni about the intersection of engineering skills and social change. Equip yourself with knowledge that can help you make decisions about when to act for social change versus when to step back, learn how to find your way when you want to contribute your engineering skills but don’t know how, and better understand how engineers can strike a balance between supporting others and empowering themselves to lead.
This night will offer:
- Tools and take-aways from working alumni that you can use as you decide on and a plan a course to contribute to social justice initiatives with engineering skills and expertise.
- Find out how engineering alumni have empowered themselves,
- The hard lessons they’ve learned about social change work, how they’ve adjusted their approaches and persevered
- The power of deep listening
- A chance for you to plot your own steps towards empowering yourself and others in the face of overwhelming projects for systemic change, including preliminary learning.
Year 1 & 2 EngScis, are you interested in research?
Join us for a special panel discussion with EngSci students who have recently completed placements through our Engineering Science Research Opportunities Program (ESROP) at U of T and abroad.
Learn how they found their research projects, what they learned from their experience, and what to expect from summer research.
Meet the panelists and register here.
Join us this month as Professor Ervin Sejdić (ECE) will discuss the recent advances of artificial intelligence and how it is transforming the healthcare industry.
Artificial intelligence is an exciting field spanning computer science, engineering, mathematics, and statistics. In recent years, it has become a hot topic that promises to revolutionize many aspects of our daily lives ranging from our cars to our health. However, only a few truly understand what artificial intelligence represents, and how it can be helpful in our professional lives.
Professor Sejdić will address a question that we often ask ourselves: Will artificial intelligence replace my clinician? He will also cover some of recent developments dealing with artificial intelligence and dysphagia, a swallowing disorder caused by a variety of neurological conditions (e.g., stroke, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease), head and neck cancer, genetic syndromes, and iatrogenic conditions or trauma. A recently proposed field called computational deglutition is a collaboration between clinicians and the data science community aimed at the development of clinically relevant algorithms that will aid clinicians during the assessment and treatment of swallowing disorders.

Join us on Tuesday, May 3rd for a special edition of Disruptors & Dilemmas, featuring alumni and faculty from U of T Engineering, the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, and the University of Toronto Mississauga.
The Future of Vaccine Production: Giving Canadian Biomanufacturing a Shot in the Arm
The COVID-19 pandemic exposed gaps in Canada’s preparedness to address great challenges in the biomanufacturing space, including domestic production of vaccines. Disruptors & Dilemmas asks a panel of multi-disciplinary experts to provide their insights on Canada’s response to COVID-19, and how the fields of chemistry, engineering, and pharmacy are equipped to address future global crises. Through exciting initiatives at the University of Toronto and beyond, our alumni and faculty hold the keys to unlocking the power of Canadian biomanufacturing to ensure that we are a world leader for the next great challenge.
This free virtual speaker panel will be moderated by Claire Kennedy, Co-Chair of the Defy Gravity Campaign and Former Chair of University of Toronto’s Governing Council. Guests will be invited to engage in Q&A with the panelists following the discussion.
Discover U of T Engineering at this year’s Ontario Universities’ Fair (OUF)!
