Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research is an excellent way for U of T Engineering students to gain research experience working in labs on campus and across the world. In addition to gaining hands-on experience in leading-edge engineering research in action, you will build your resume and network. You can also count hours worked towards your practical experience requirement.  

Many U of T Engineering professors hire undergraduate students as research team members in their labs on campus. There are also specific programs at U of T that involve research - including opportunities to conduct research abroad and see how research unfolds in another country - that are open to engineering students.
