  • Engineering student? Get hired.

    Submitted by enginehire

    enginehire is a platform built to help engineering students find internship and job opportunities. Do you know which students are the most successful coming out of engineering school? Turns out it's not the students with the highest GPAs, it's the students with the most experience.

    The thing is, you don't have to work at Google or Tesla to get valuable experience.

    We work with local engineering companies that are interested in hiring students. The way it works is pretty simple, once you create your enginehire profile, if your skills and interests align with a potential employer's requirements, we will connect you with the company. That means companies will contact you with opportunities targeted to you, instead of you awkwardly trying to force your resume onto a recruiter at a career fair full of software positions.

    It's fast, it's free, if you want to find out more and build your profile, visit enginehire.me.

These two concepts are widely used in fields of civil, mechanical and electrical engineering.

    Then you can write a simple Arduino code, build the electric swing, an extremely simplified version of momentum wheel, and investigate its natural resonance frequency.

    When: January 24, 2017

    Where: WB342

    Time: 6:00 PM

  • SEA - Sustainability Conference

    Submitted by Denis Lantsov
    9:00 AM, January 28th, 2017
    Enercare Centre

    As advances in sustainability and renewable energy proposals become increasingly prominent; policymakers, business leaders, and even individuals share the responsibility of implementing and incorporating these proposals into pre-existing systems.

    Much has been talked about, and many ideas have been exchanged, but what has been done and what should be done?

    Under the theme “From Policy to Practice”, the 2017 UofT Sustainability Conference aims to showcase how various sustainable projects, ventures and policies are currently being applied within industry practice.

    The conference brings together and connects individuals and groups from a variety of backgrounds: government, university, corporate, etc, in order to discuss sustainability within a broad range of sectors.

    Recently, there has been an ongoing initiative to implement sustainable ideas and plans through various technologies and policies. However utilizing these technologies and applying these policies are not easily accomplished. “How do we take these Policies and apply them to Industry Practice?” That is the question we strive to address with the 2017 UofT Sustainability Conference.
