Engineering Science Research Opportunities Program (Engineers for the World)

The motto in EngSci at U of T is Engineers for the World (E4TW) because their goal is to educate engineers who seek to solve the world’s most critical problems, have compassion, want to collaborate with people from various backgrounds, and use technology to improve life for citizens across the globe.

The ESROP – E4TW fellowship is for EngSci students wishing to conduct summer research on projects related to the social, ethical, political, and human rights impacts of technology.

Placements have included work at the Citizen Lab at U of T’s Munk School of Global Affairs for research at the intersection of the Internet, global security and human rights. EngSci students have participated in summer projects on network security, malicious software analysis and the technical aspects of Internet filtering, surveillance, and censorship circumvention technologies, and the political implications of such technologies.
