Engineering Faculty's Academic Plan

The Faculty's Academic Plan is the result of thorough consultations with faculty, staff, students and alumni. This Plan, which was approved on October 6, 2011, sets our academic and administrative directions for the next five years. It aims to strengthen our research-intensive culture, academic rigour, global reputation and visibility, enrolment, excellence in students’ experiences inside and outside the classroom, funding models and our internal and external collaboration, outreach and influence.

Engineering Faculty Annual Report 2009: Performance Indicators

The Faculty's inaugural Annual Report summarized the Faculty's 2008-2009 data, comparing it with historical data as well as peer institutions. It also served as a foundation for the Faculty's self-study and academic planning endeavours. Follow the link to explore the sections of the Annual Report.

Task Force on Globalization

In early 2008, Dean Cristina Amon, in consultation with the Chairs and Directors of the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, formed a Task Force on Globalization and Engineering to consider how the Faculty’s education and research missions should take into account globalization trends and global challenges – how we can better prepare graduates for a global workplace and how our research initiatives should be influenced by and proactively address global challenges. Explore the final report for details, and read about the Centre for Globalization.

Task Force on Engineering and Public Policy

Led by Professor Doug Reeve, the mandate of this group is to build awareness of the intersection of Engineering/technology and public policy. Through panel discussions, focus groups for alumni and students, and student surveys, the Task Force completed its report, which includes recommendations on educational programs (at the undergraduate and graduate levels) and organization in Engineering and Public Policy. Comments in response to the Committee's Report are welcome; please send via the Dean's Office at dean.engineering@ecf.utoronto.ca

Task Force on Outreach

The Task Force on Outreach was appointed to identify activities that are strategically aligned with our academic mission, linked to our recruitment efforts. Led by Professor Susan McCahan, Chair, First Year, five recommendations were suggested, including a definition of  'outreach'; the identification of three primary purposes and measures for Pre-University Outreach; the establishment of a Faculty Outreach Office to report to the Chair, First Year; and the clarification of current and future programs.

Divisional Space Review and Development of a Master Plan

The Space Review Committee was established by Dean Cristina Amon in September, 2008. The report is presented in three distinct and cohesive sections to include specific observations from undergraduate and graduate representatives respectively serving on the Committee. Both representatives sought out input through discussion and interaction with their respective peer groups in the preparation of these representative observations. It should be noted however that no formal student town-hall meetings were held and that both reports received the full support of the Committee for the Divisional Space Review and Development of a Master Plan.
