Engineering Science Undergraduate Program

One of the most distinguished engineering programs in the world, Engineering Science (EngSci) is designed for students who are looking for an intense academic challenge.

In your first two years, you’ll be immersed in engineering, math, science, computing and humanities. In your last two years, you’ll choose from one of eight majors for accelerated, discipline-specific learning. Our students thrive in a close-knit community of exceptional individuals, creating an enriched and unique learning environment.

Engineering Science Majors

EngSci Major:

Biomedical Systems Engineering (with a minor in robotics and mechatronics)

Graduation Year:


Memorable Experience:

In second year, he travelled to Turkey as a National Science Foundation Fellow to learn about the intersection of bioinformatics and systems biology.

Fun Fact:

In 2020, Kramay co-founded Stitch4Corona, a volunteer-based initiative to produce face masks for Toronto’s most vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Current Job:

Vanier Scholar and MD-PhD candidate at U of T, focusing on neuromodulation, neurofeedback, brain-machine interfaces and human memory augmentation.

“I chose EngSci because I wanted a challenge — and it was one of the best decisions of my life. From academic learning to personal growth and amazing friendships, it was everything I hoped for and more. EngSci prepared me to be successful after graduating, not just through the wealth of knowledge I gained, but by helping me develop a personality that embraces challenges and chases the impossible.”
