Thesis Courses

An excellent way to gain research experience is through a thesis course. Offered in the majority of programs, these courses allow upper-year students to conduct a thesis on an approved subject under the supervision of any faculty member at the University of Toronto. The thesis provides students with an opportunity to conduct, document and experience engineering-related research as an undergraduate student. Students must obtain the permission of the academic unit for their proposed thesis topic and locate a professor who agrees to supervise them. Consult the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering Academic Calendar or speak with an advisor in your academic unit. https://engineering.calendar.utoronto.ca/
