Learn by doing

Our undergraduate students are immersed in hands-on learning. Like Nick Birch and Tyler Rhodes who, through an entrepreneurial co-op work term, formed their own company to build a tree-planting robot.

Undergraduate studies

Dynamic, hands-on learning; research that makes a vital impact; and discovery and innovation in Canada's most extraordinary academic environment provide an Edge that can't be found anywhere else.
