How Can I Help?: Engineering, Equity & Change – An ILead Real Talk @ Online event
Nov 9 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

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.

ESEC: Engineering Science Education Conference 2022

Now in its 17th year, this annual conference aims to broaden our students’ horizons through engagement with world leaders in a wide range of sectors related to our program’s subjects.


EngSci students learn about research, education and career opportunities for young engineers from innovators and thought leaders in engineering-related fields.

Speakers share their expertise and career path through presentations and informal networking events.

ESEC 2022 will be a virtual conference with small group “fireside chats”, lectures, and more.

Skule Lunch & Learn presents Drinking Water and Health – Should we be Concerned About Microplastics? @ Online event
Feb 16 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

U of T Engineering Lunch & Learn

U of T Engineering alumni, join us for this monthly series.

Did you know that the Drinking Water Research Group (DWRG) at the University of Toronto has received funding from Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), as well as the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) to investigate microplastics in Canadian drinking water? Efforts by the DWRG over the past three years have led to the development and subsequent refinement of advanced microplastic sampling and analysis techniques, allowing us to focus on the different health impact related issues.

But what exactly are Microplastics and why are they referred to as a “triple threat”?
