Grand Challenges Speaker Series

Recognize your role as a global leader.

In 2020, McMaster Engineering launched The Pivot, the largest project-based experiential learning engineering program that the world has ever seen. Central to this program is the development of five key competencies in all engineering students in the areas of research, multidisciplinary engagement, entrepreneurship, multiculturalism, and social consciousness. 

The Grand Challenges Speaker Series seeks to highlight the importance of these five competencies in the ever-changing world. We are hosting guest speakers from different areas of the industry to deliver engaging sessions for each of these critical skills, how they appear in the professional world after graduation, and how you can pursue opportunities to develop them throughout your degree.

In 2021, each session will be held on Zoom on the following dates:

  • February 4th, 2021
  • February 25th, 2021
  • March 18th, 2021
  • April 8th, 2021
