Why am I in Engineering?! 4

Grad school applications are looming over my head and I am in an uncomfortable position.  I am just beginning to realise that this safe and secure world of “School”, of which I have been a part for 16 years, is drawing to a close.  It is the end of an more »

This SKULE Engineer and Her F!rosh Week Story

I remember being in my final year of high school, all excited and nervous for university life. I had already accepted UofT Engineering feeling pretty good about myself since I’d be studying in the heart of downtown Toronto, attending that program that required you to be smart (definitely some arrogance there)… Aside from the excitement though, I was stressing more »

Michael Lucky: MECH 1T5

What made you choose your discipline? I like Mech things, always had a dream to design roller coasters and Mech is the main thing that would allow that. What do you think about your discipline now? 2nd year, first semester is rather unfocused on the mechanical side of things, so more »

Layan Kutob: INDY 1T2 + PEY

What made you choose your discipline? After attending the discipline info sessions I decided on INDY because it was the only program that combined my interest in both engineering and business. The reason I wanted to do engineering is not to be a technical person but rather a problem solver, more »

Matt Lattavo: CIV 1T4 + PEY

What made you choose your discipline? I knew I loved Transportation, but I also had a long-time desire to try Architecture. Civ seemed appropriate (in fact, when I was applying to other Universities, I applied to their Civil Engineering Programs). I also loved the fact that fourth-year is completely open; more »

Albert Huynh: CHEM 1T2 + PEY

What made you choose your discipline? I always had an intrinsic interest in chemistry and its applications. I thought that being able to meld this with business and design aspects would be really appealing. It’s also a very broad discipline; outside of traditional applications of chemical processing, chemical engineering can more »
