Welcome to Engineering

The faculty and staff of Engineering are happy to welcome our first and second year students to campus for the first time and to welcome all faculty, staff and students back to campus after such a long time.

Safety is a key consideration for the engineering profession and for our faculty. The onus on us as individuals to make responsible decisions for ourselves and those around us.

In Memoriam, Fred Otto, Professor Emeritus, Dean of Engineering (1985-1994)

It is with a heavy heart that we pay tribute to Fred Otto, former Dean of Engineering. Fred was an outstanding leader in our industry, community, and beyond. A kind and generous man who always put the spotlight on others around him, making everyone feel unique and empowered. Fred had a significant impact on the future of the Faculty of Engineering, developing the first environmentally focused chemical engineering course and expanding the Co-Op program. Over the past three decades, generations of engineers were inspired and influenced by their DiscoverE experience, a program established under Fred's leadership to provide fun, interactive engineering experiences to youth. In honour of. Fred, we invite you to make a donation to the fund established by his family, the Fred and Helen Otto DiscoverE Endowment, in his memory.
