An Overview

Founded in 1873, the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering community includes 5,538 undergraduate students, 2,731 graduate students, 272 professors, 366 administrative and technical staff and more than 50,000 alumni worldwide.

Our graduates have pursued careers in all engineering fields throughout Canada and the world. They contribute towards resource industries, manufacturing, transportation, communications, as well as law, finance and health care systems. Skule alumni are employed by governments, private enterprise and throughout our educational system. Many have become leaders in major corporations, businesses and develop new companies as technological entrepreneurs.

  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Biomedical Systems Engineering
  • Electrical & Computer Engineering
  • Energy Systems Engineering
  • Infrastructure Engineering (no longer available to new students)
  • Engineering Mathematics, Statistics & Finance
  • Engineering Physics
  • Machine Intelligence

Curricula for all programs of study are set out in detail in the Curriculum and Programs section of this calendar.
 

Faculty Structure

Most of Engineering's undergraduate students' teaching is provided by 272 professors across the Faculty's five departments and three institutes: the departments of Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry, Civil & Mineral Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Mechanical & Industrial Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering, University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, and Institute for Studies in Transdisciplinary Engineering Education & Practice.

The Faculty is fortunate to be part of a great University that provides access to a vast range of resources. The departments of Computer Science, English, Earth Sciences, Mathematics, Music, Philosophy and Physics — all in the Faculty of Arts & Science — make important contributions to the Engineering curriculum. 

The Engineering Alumni Association, which all graduates belong to, supports the ongoing work of the Faculty, and, through representative membership on the Faculty Council, participates in governance. The buildings of the Faculty are located primarily at the south end of the University's St. George campus.

The Faculty's decanal offices are located in the Bahen Centre for Information Technology, University of Toronto, 44 St. George Street. Students seeking information about any aspect of study in the Faculty are encouraged to contact the Office of the Registrar.

 

Engineering Society

Every U of T Engineering undergraduate is a member of the Engineering Society. Founded in 1885, the Society is the oldest formal Engineering organization in Canada. Together with its constituent "course clubs" (one for each program), the Society plans and operates many student activities and services. It is the focal point for the traditional Skule™ spirit that exists among Engineering students — the envy of other groups in the University. This sense of spirit and community continues throughout our graduates' professional careers. The Society operates the Engineering stores where students purchase most of their school supplies and instruments; additionally, it deals with matters of policy relating to student academic affairs and has representation on Faculty Council and its Standing Committees.

 

Engineering Computing Facility

The Engineering Computing Facility (ECF) provides a variety of computing services for teaching, learning and research within the Faculty, as well as offering support for departmental computers and computer communication throughout the Faculty. ECF has networks of distributed computing systems accessible from hundreds of terminals. Every undergraduate in the Faculty is entitled to an ECF account. The intention is to have the computing system used as often as the student requires it in their studies, just as one might use a library or other communal resource. Normally, students access their ECF accounts through terminals on campus.

There are two major components to ECF: general Linux and Windows environments. The general purpose Linux machines consist of 185 PCs that run Linux. All of these systems are interconnected with Ethernet and share files (using NFS). They are also connected to the campus backbone network, and thereby, to the Internet. This provides students with electronic mail and electronic file transfer capabilities, as well as access to remote sites such as supercomputer facilities. 

The ECF Windows environment is composed of 183 PCs for CAD and general applications that run Windows 10. The ECF Windows servers also support labs in Civil, Lassonde Mineral, Mechanical & Industrial, Chemical, Materials Science, Engineering Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering and Aerospace. ECF also maintains Linux and Windows multiprocessor machines as well as a bank of remote access Windows workstations giving students the ability to work remotely.

 

Coordinated Bachelor/Master's Program

Students who intend to continue their studies to a Master’s degree after completion of the BASc program may pursue the Coordinated Bachelor/Master’s Program in the fourth year of the undergraduate curriculum. Departmental approval is required.

After completion of the BASc degree, and upon acceptance by the School of Graduate Studies, a student can extend the topic of their coordinated program thesis to a Master’s thesis, which is normally under the supervision of the same thesis advisor. This program permits a significant reduction in the time it would typically take a student to complete their Master’s degree requirements.

A student who wishes to enrol in a coordinated program thesis should consult the departmental graduate coordinators about the academic requirements for the MASc or MEng degrees and obtain approval from their thesis topic from the BASc Thesis Coordinator. The Thesis Coordinator will require assurance that the BASc thesis project provides a suitable preparation for the proposed MASc thesis or MEng project and that satisfactory arrangements have been made for supervision of both the coordinated program thesis and the proposed Master’s program.

 

Graduate Study & Research

Beyond the undergraduate level, the Faculty has a strong commitment to graduate studies and research. Our graduate students work in an environment where innovation thrives and they play a vital role in ground-breaking research. 

The Faculty offers the following degrees at the graduate level: 

  • Master of Engineering (MEng): Professional degree in engineering with a number of emphasis options, including ELITE (Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Innovation & Technology in Engineering), Analytics, Advanced Soft Materials, Biomanufacturing, Robotics, Sustainable Energy, Advanced Manufacturing, Sustainable Aviation, Forensic Engineering, Identity, Privacy & Security, Aerial Robotics, Engineering & Globalization and Advanced Water Technologies. 
  • The Master of Engineering (MEng) in Biomedical Engineering focuses on the design and commercialization of biomedical devices.
  • Master of Engineering in Cities Engineering & Management (MEng C.E.M)
  • Master of Applied Science (MASc): Traditional, full-time, research-intensive Master's degree.
  • Master of Health Science in Clinical Engineering (MHSc): Combines the fields of engineering, life sciences, medicine, and clinical application.
  • Doctor of Philosophy (PhD): Highest degree in engineering

Centre for Advanced Nanotechnology

Director: Professor Harry E. Ruda
Website: sites.utoronto.ca/ecan/

Nanotechnology is the multidisciplinary field of design, fabrication and application of nanometer-scale materials, structures and devices. The field may involve the disciplines of materials science, electrical, computer, and mechanical engineering, as well as chemistry, physics, mathematics, and biotechnology. Specifically, in semiconductor applications, nanotechnology refers to the technology for the fabrication of electronic and photonic devices with sizes that range from a few nanometers to the sub-micron range; these fields are commonly termed “nanoelectronics” and “nanophotonics,” respectively. Additionally, the term nanotechnology is also currently used to refer to the rapidly developing area of nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS), which have only just begun to show their promise for the fields of sensing, biotechnology, integrated optoelectronic, and fibre assemblies.

The Centre for Advanced Nanotechnology (CAN) is based on a multidisciplinary team of faculty and researchers from various departments including Applied Science & Engineering, Arts and Sciences, and Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. CAN is Canada’s first centre for nanotechnology research, and it is closely tied to industry and other key nanotechnology research institutions throughout the world.

The main objectives of the Centre, which was established in 1997, include advances in research in both theoretical and experimental methods for a new generation of nanoelectronic and nanophotonic materials, structures and devices; the education and training of a new generation of highly-qualified personnel for industry and academia; collaboration with other members of the academic and industrial community and the establishment of specialized resources and expertise in this expanding field for the scientific community and government.

A strategic material produced from a renewable resource, paper is critical to our civilization. Paper has been of paramount importance in the transmission and storage of information necessary to science and literature. It has also enabled the creation of modern business and industry. Even in the modern world, paper, in partnership with electronic information systems, is essential. Wood pulp is raw material not only for paper but for thousands of structural, absorbent and packaging products that are so completely embedded in our lives that we often overlook them. Canada is one of the largest suppliers of pulp and newsprint and has a long tradition of scientific and technological leadership. These factors make our country a major force in the pulp and paper world. 

The Pulp & Paper Centre at the University of Toronto, which exists within the umbrella of the Department of Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry, was founded in 1987. Although the Centre has grown and changed with the challenges that face the industry, its mission since inception has been to stimulate research and support teaching in pulp and paper science and engineering and to encourage collaborative research with industry partners.

For the past 35 years, the Centre has hosted a continuous series of 12 university-industry research consortia that have traditionally focused on energy and chemical recovery, and have more recently broadened in focus to include biofuel combustion and biorefinery research projects which seek to convert forest biomass and mill waste into alternative sources of energy. This work has increased the competitiveness of the Canadian pulp and paper industry and its suppliers by improving energy and chemical recovery efficiency, improving operational safety, increasing equipment reliability and efficiency, increasing utilization of biofuels, reducing environmental impact, and lowering the carbon footprint. This long-lasting partnership has supported the research of many professors, researchers, and students and, over the years, has engaged over 60 different companies. The present consortium on Effective Energy and Chemical Recovery in Pulp and Paper Mills, led by Professor Nikolai DeMartini, involves 12 professors and over 20 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from four university departments and 25 industry partners from seven countries. 

The Centre continues to enrich students’ educational experiences through interesting and relevant research projects, seminar programs, professional development programs, annual research meetings, and international exchanges. The Pulp and Paper Centre is also well integrated with the Technical Association of Pulp & Paper Industry's (TAPPI) student chapter, providing ample opportunity for networking within the industry worldwide.
Technical and engineering problems are illuminated and rigorous research methodologies are applied to investigate the underlying critical phenomena. This has made the University a significant source of expertise for the pulp and paper industry and their suppliers in Canada and the world and has created a unique learning environment for students.
