Dean's Research Awards

Please note: We are not currently accepting applications. Please check back regularly for information on the 2020/2021 program. 

One way you can get involved in world-class research is through the Dean's Research Awards program. This program is available to all full-time engineering students, beginning in their second year of studies, who have a previous-year minimum GPA of 3.2 - your GPA will be calculated using the last two full terms of graded coursework.

As a participant, you'll receive a modest financial award and gain valuable practical research experience.

Participating in the program and conducting research enhances learning by giving you a more in-depth understanding of the lessons you've learned in the classroom.

The award must be held during a Fall/Winter academic term (i.e. not on a co-op work term) and you can not receive a DRA for a project in which you are also receiving credit.



Deadline for Applications for Fall/Dual Term projects - October 15
Fall Term Presentations - December
Deadline for Applications for Winter Term projects - January 31
Winter & Dual Term Presentations - April
