GEARS is a great opportunity to connect with upper year EngScis who can answer questions related to your courses, the Engineering Science program and opportunities within Engineering and the University. GEARS Mentors represent different Majors, clubs & societies – some have completed PEY or done summer research at U of T or abroad. The sessions are drop-in, so arrive when you can and stay for as long as you’d like.
What are the benefits of attending GEARS?
- Successful upper-year students provide guidance and support as you transition from high school into Engineering Science.
- Build a sense of community. Get to know your classmates and meet upper-year students.
- Develop key academic skills. Learn to integrate how to learn with what you need to learn to solve problems.
- All sessions are drop-in, no registration required. Unable to attend an entire session? Join GEARS for part of one.
- Judgement-free zone. No marks are issued and your attendance is not reported to your instructors.
Now in its 19th 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 2023 will be held in person with small group “fireside chats”, lectures, and more.
Check the ESEC 2024 website for info on this year’s line-up, how you can prepare, and ways to engage with the speakers.
