Message from the UT-IMDI director

I am extremely pleased by the success of the Institute for Multidisciplinary Design & Innovation at the University of Toronto, now in its third year of offering industry based summer projects. As our 2014 student project book highlights, we had 24 exciting projects and students.  These students demonstrated their skill, aptitude and great work ethic at Bombardier Aerospace, Pratt & Whitney Canada, UTC Aerospace Systems, Magna Advanced Technologies, Van-Rob Kirchhoff Automotive, Magellan Aerospace, Honeywell Aerospace, MDA Corporation, General Motors Canada, Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, SPP Canada Aircraft, Litens, Mount Sinai Hospital, and Holt Renfrew/The Poirer Group. Lead by our UT-IMDI Advisory Board of senior managers from amongst our industry partners, we are confident that UT-IMDI will continue to be a beneficial collaboration between academia and industry, in addition to providing U of T Engineering students with the best access to gain practice in the field.
