Countdown to UTERC 2023
Wednesday, August 2nd, 2023
The U of T Engineering Research Conference (UTERC) is returning for its 3rd annual edition! UTERC provides students, researchers, and industry professionals with a unique opportunity to engage virtually with the work of our graduate students while learning more about the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering’s leading research. This year’s theme is boundless connections, with the ultimate purpose of providing networking opportunities, to encourage collaborative problem solving, and to continue to build the community of students and alumni from U of T.
The format of the conference will involve graduate students presenting short oral presentations, while posters will be presented through a poster contest. The presentations will showcase research across the Faculty’s 6 Innovation Clusters (Advanced Manufacturing, Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence, Human Health, Robotics, Sustainability, and Water).
As a leading research faculty, the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering is pushing the limits and pioneering initiatives in this increasingly digital world. While continuing to fight against these difficult times, now more than ever it is vital to keep our community connected and meet the needs of our students. Through innovation and collaboration, what we can achieve together is truly boundless.
We hope you choose to participate in our conference!
