The best way to learn more about the Faculty of Engineering is to come for a visit! Take a campus or faculty tour, attend one of our special events or participate in a shadow day.

Tours of the Faculty of Engineering

You’ll learn about labs, classes, and extracurricular activities — all from the perspective of a current student. Tours run daily (Monday-Friday) at 10:30am and 3:30pm.
