Fostering creativity and inspiring 21st-century learning and innovation.

Attracting and empowering the finest faculty, staff and students depends on our ability to provide an environment that fosters creativity and inspires 21st-century learning and innovation at the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering.

The Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CEIE) is a much-needed response to the sweeping changes taking place in engineering. Through new commitments, we can help build this iconic new building.

Located next to Simcoe Hall and facing onto St. George Street, the CEIE is destined to become a landmark at U of T. Dynamic, flexible environments will break down artificial barriers between people, foster collaboration, encourage active learning and accelerate innovation.

The CEIE will be a vibrant hub that enables U of T Engineering to set a new standard for engineering education and research and position the Faculty among the most innovative in the world.

Student Impact

As U of T Engineering continues to find new ways to enhance the student experience, the CEIE will play a central role. It will enable the Faculty to prepare tomorrow’s engineers through dynamic, flexible environments that will break down artificial barriers between people and focus on enhancing experiential and collaborative learning opportunities. The CEIE will help set a new standard for engineering education in Canada and position the Faculty among the most innovative in the world.

Regional Impact

A strong university helps build a strong city. U of T Engineering has a long history of nurturing exceptional researchers, students and alumni entrepreneurs and leaders whose success contributes to the regional marketplace and positively impacts job and wealth creation in Toronto. The CEIE will combine some of the University’s premier centres and institutes, incubators and industry partnership opportunities under one roof, providing students and researchers unparalleled resources to move their research into marketable products and services.

Global Impact

The CEIE will house multidisciplinary hubs that bring together some of the most innovative minds across the Faculty and the University to address the greatest challenges — from energy to enabling technologies. The Faculty’s ability to attract the brightest students, many of whom go on to establish themselves in countries around the world, is due in part to these renowned institutes and centres. These centres have already made a tremendous impact around the globe, improving lives through creative engineering solutions.

Building innovation from the ground up: We’re setting a new standard for engineering education at U of T’s Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering with plans for a state-of-the-art building on the St. George campus which will become one of the finest teaching and research environments available at any engineering school in the world.
