What would it be like to take exciting classes while discovering new landscapes and cultures? Have you ever thought about conducting research in Bombay, Paris, Buenos Aires or Hong Kong while completing your degree? The Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering works in cooperation with the Centre for International Experience (CIE) to offer students great opportunities to study at more than 150 top-tier institutions in 40 countries.

Jeffrey Skoll Joint BASc-MBA

The Jeffrey Skoll BASc/MBA program provides University of Toronto engineering students with the opportunity to pursue a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree at the Rotman School of Management immediately after completion of their BASc.  This program is unique in Canada.  Students admitted into the program will be considered for a Skoll scholarship to partially offset the Rotman MBA tuition.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

There are many occasions in which students are required to use personal protective equipment (PPE) including:

  • safety footwear bearing the CSA Green Patch

Students are required to purchase their own PPE.

All field trips, laboratories, and other events require advance briefing on the nature of the potential hazards and students are required to attend these briefings and to follow the provided instructions.
