Connect with Students

Information sessions

We welcome you to promote your company to U of T Engineering students through information sessions. We can help you organize the session and promote it to students. The presentation content and speakers are determined by you, the employer.

Currently, both in-person and virtual information sessions are offered, subject to government and University public health direction.

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

  • September to mid-October; and
  • January to early February

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

To organize an employer information session on campus, please contact us. 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, PEY Co-op positions).
