Welcome to McMaster Engineering.
Through our Innovation from Excellence strategy, McMaster Engineering facilitates numerous opportunities for our faculty and staff members and students to make an impact locally, nationally and globally.
This strategy enhances our diversity and experiential learning for our students. It improves student retention, professional development, our community and engagement with our city and region. As well, it advances the impact of our research and innovation.
We are proud of the gains we’ve made in several key areas, including hiring more women faculty, launching an innovative joint engineering and health sciences program, offering students more opportunities to create start-ups, decreasing student attrition, bolstering our partnerships with industry and alumni and improving our international reputation.
We continue to hire top faculty members in important research clusters, such as bio-innovation, smart systems and nanotechnologies to meet the big challenges facing our world. Collaboration and interdisciplinary research across campus is a focal point, with new partnerships launched in the areas of smart systems and biomedical research.
We encourage our graduates, faculty members, and staff, as best as they can, to focus on openness, to be unafraid of being pioneers and become among the first to ward off the bad associated with disruptive change.
Our students are educated to recognize that engineers alone will not be able to change the world. We teach our students that diversity of thought and disciplines matters.
