For generations, U of T Engineering students have proudly displayed “E4TW” on their Skule™ jackets. But what does it mean to be an “engineer for the world”?
The practice of engineering transcends borders. Successful engineering leaders are well versed in the social, economic and cultural contexts in which their innovations will be applied. It is equally important for engineering teams to include voices and perspectives from around the globe, both to strengthen creativity and to ensure that technological solutions truly address the needs of local populations.
Whether you aspire to improve access to clean water, leverage AI to support health care, or create more sustainable ways to move people through urban environments, your success depends on being able to think and act with a global perspective.
We are proud of all the ways our students and alumni inspire change in their communities and around the world.
