ACE Events

The ACE Seminar Series provides opportunities that will accelerate, cultivate, and empower student success.  Through ACE, undergraduate engineering students will have the opportunity to engage with staff, faculty and peers to learn and apply academic strategies, life skills, and co-curricular opportunities in order to maximize their university experience.  These sessions will help ease the transition into U of T Engineering and increase student success not only during their time here, but also help students prepare to transition out of school into the professional community.
