U of T Engineering alumni, join us for this monthly series. Learn about exciting research in diverse subjects from U of T Engineering professors.
join us for an exclusive Skule™ Lunch & Learn featuring ECE Professor Jonathan Rose (EngSci 8T0, ElecE MASc 8T2, PhD 8T6).
Picture this: A future where the latest AI language capability offers accessible talk therapy at any time, in any location.
Professor Jonathan Rose’s research into Natural Language Processing and applications in mental health includes a widely used behaviour-change chatbot to aid smokers in their path to quitting. In this presentation, he will present insights from the experimental deployment of his most recent versions of the chatbot, and also comment on the latest Large Language Models (cousins of ChatGPT) and how they could outperform previous models.
Register today and embark on a journey into the future of mental health support.

Get ready for ESEC 2024!
Never been to a professional conference before? Feeling shy about talking to more senior professionals?
This workshop, hosted by Troost ILead will help first- and second-year EngSci students get the most out of their Engineering Science Education Conference (ESEC) experience.
You will learn strategies for networking in a professional setting (with speakers, faculty, and fellow classmates) and knowledge on how and what to prepare for the conference. These skills are more important now than ever in our current online-only circumstances.
Students will learn:
- Networking skills, approaches, & mindsets
- How to prepare for a networking situation
- The art of asking good professional questions
Register for the Prep Workshop here (utorID login required). This event is open to Year 1 and 2 EngSci students only.
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.
