A Message from Acting Dean
Brenda McCabe

Welcome back to U of T Engineering after what I hope was a restful break. 
This month's Engineering Newsletter focuses on sustainability. As our planet's growing population continues to require more energy and more materials, our Faculty is leading the way in research and education on how to do more with less. As we explore in this newsletter, our innovations are driving positive change at both local and global levels, and will have significant impact in the years to come.
I am pleased to share that progress from the new Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship is well underway. We are currently awaiting final rezoning approval for the city, and in the coming months we will begin demolishing the TYP building. We will keep you updated on new developments as they are finalized.

– Brenda
