Global Engineering Week would not be possible without our fantastic partners.
The Center for Global Engineering (CGEN) is a cross-disciplinary research center with over 30 collaborating faculty members from across the University of Toronto. CGEN was created to enable faculty and students to develop transformative, creative solutions to address some of the world’s most important problems. Focusing on the pillars of (1) food and nutrition, (2) water and sanitation, (3) health, and (4) shelter, CGEN’s scope spans across Engineering disciplines. The Centre has forged partnerships across the University of Toronto, as well as other academic institutions and non-profit organizations around the world. Since its inception in 2009, CGEN has led several high impact projects around the world, including:
EWB U of T strives to address social injustices where there are difficult constraints, diverse stakeholders, and no clear solutions. EWB UofT does this through offer a year long curriculum to our members to give them fundamental knowledge of global development. We then support them in applying this knowledge through ownership of socially impactful projects in Canada or overseas. EWB operates at U of T to grow leaders that will have positive impact on failing social systems across the world.
Through collaborating with professors across the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, Global Engineering Week will be impacting over 2,500 students via course curriculum in 2018. The participating courses include:
