    New Collaborative Program in Engineering Education Now Accepting Applications
    The University of Toronto is proud to announce a new Collaborative Master's and Ph.D. Program. The EngEd Program will launch in September 2014 and be offered through the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering and the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education
    The Collaborative Program in Engineering Education (EngEd) is an interdisciplinary program designed for students looking to join a vibrant community of scholars pursuing research and learning at the nexus of education and engineering. Students will complete a graduate degree from a traditional field of education or engineering (e.g. Chemical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering) that is enriched through course work and a thesis relating to engineering education. Research is supervised by graduate faculty members in a number of home departments. Opportunities exist to assess and apply research findings as part of instructional initiatives within the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering.
    To learn more about EngEd Program please contact Professor Greg Evans at greg.evans@utoronto.ca
