Connect with Students

On-Campus Information Sessions

We welcome you to promote your company to U of T Engineering students through on-campus information sessions. We can help you book space on campus for your session and advertise the event to students. The presentation format, information and speakers are determined by you, the employer.

There are two optimal times in the year to host information sessions:

  • September to November; and
  • January to mid-February.

Most employers opt for sessions that run for one hour. Given students' varied schedules, hosting a session in the early evening or during lunch hour tend to be well attended.

We also work with the U of T Career Centre to ensure that info sessions targeting engineering students are advertised to the appropriate students.

To organize an employer information session on campus, please contact pey@ecf.utoronto.ca. In your message, please indicate the types of students you're looking to attract (e.g., engineering students of a particular discipline, new graduates, current students) and the kinds of positions you're looking to fill (e.g., full-time positions, summer positions, PEY Co-op positions).
