About the Myhal Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship

On April 27, 2018, U of T Engineering officially opened the Myhal Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship, launching a new era for engineering education and innovation.

The building offers one of the finest teaching and research environments of any engineering school in the world, fostering entrepreneurship and collaboration among exceptional students and faculty at Canada’s #1-ranked engineering school.

Named in honour of George Myhal (Industrial Engineering graduate of 1978), his wife Rayla and their family, the building embodies key engineering qualities: collaboration across disciplines, experiential learning, leadership and entrepreneurship. It includes flexible, technology-enhanced active learning spaces, prototyping facilities to support both curricular and co-curricular design projects, and dedicated space for student clubs and teams.

The Myhal Centre was designed by U of T alumnus Robert Davies of Montgomery Sisam Architects in Toronto, in association with Peter Clegg of Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios in England. It features interactive classroom technologies, open-concept spaces for leading-edge laboratories and collaborative spaces for students, faculty, alumni and staff. It is also home to leading multidisciplinary research centres and institutes.

Our diverse community includes more than 5,200 undergraduates, 2,400 graduate students, 260 faculty members, 320 staff and 50,000+ alumni. Through innovations in engineering education, we prepare the next generation of global engineering leaders with strong technical foundations and professional competencies in multidisciplinary research, teamwork, leadership and entrepreneurship. Our faculty members are international leaders in research who collaborate across disciplines to address critical global challenges.

 

Acknowledgment of Traditional Land

We wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
