How to make the most of your time with us during your visit: 

  • Ask your questions in-person to our student ambassadors about all things MacEng. The ambassadors are excited to share information about their programs and MacEng experiences such as co-op, research, extra-curricular involvement, etc.  
  • Connect with faculty and staff about the programs and support services available. 
  • Take a MacEng Tour* (approx. 45minutes-1hour in length) with our student tour guides. These are walking tours so please inform your tour guide if you require any accommodation considerations.  
  • Spin the wheel to win some MacEng swag to start building your collection! 
  • Explore the rest of campus on your own, but be warned, you may fall in love with it quickly! 
  • Please refer to the FAQs found on the “Arriving to Campus” below for details regarding the event location and parking. 


MacEng Tours

Due to the limited availability of our tour guides, and to ensure an enjoyable experience for our guests, there is a capacity on each departing tour. Tours will be on a first-come, first-serve basis departing every 15 minutes. The last tour departs an hour before your time slot ends.  

If you do not want to join a tour, or the tours have departed, you are welcome to request a DIY MacEng Tour (map and facts) for you to explore MacEng facilities on your own.  

Please be aware that MacEng Tours are not a full campus tour and will only be going over the Faculty of Engineering dedicated areas of McMaster’s campus. For more information to join a general campus tour, please check here.
