Our research partners

The Faculty of Engineering is able to conduct its high-impact research due in large part to the external funding it receives. Members of the Faculty of Engineering are the recipients of a number of provincial and federal grants from organizations like the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation, the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI), and many others.

A lot of our researchers also engage in partnership programs with members of the public and private sector.
