ABOUT ESEC

The Engineering Science Education Conference (ESEC) is an annual one-day conference for Engineering Science students at the University of Toronto. The objective of ESEC is to broaden EngSci students’ horizons in their fields of specialization. Since 2006, we have been inviting world leaders in each of our various options / majors to present lectures to our EngSci students, which explore research, education and career opportunities for young engineers.
