Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Together, we will create entrepreneurial thinkers
We are a world leader among young universities, located in Canada’s most enterprising city.
The next generation of entrepreneurs is emboldened by our energetic vision to become Canada’s entrepreneurial university – a centre of business and academic excellence that fuses ideas with action.
Our entrepreneurial and innovative spirit ignites enterprising solutions. Our graduate and undergraduate students gain a vigorous approach to problem solving that well serves communities. We enable them to become inventive, effective and conscientious planners and leaders.
The new Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning demonstrates our willingness to be in the vanguard of entrepreneurial thinking, teaching and learning. It’s a fresh approach and the first of its kind in Canada.
We are enabling thinkers to become entrepreneurs and inspiring business people to spark positive changes with lively and effective concepts.

Learning in a collaborative environment
Future engineers learn best by doing.
The Capstone Design Program and the Capstone Design Fair offer students opportunities to tackle real-world problems that can impact communities. The fair showcases high-tech gadgets and innovative design.
Final-year engineering students can develop engineering ideas from concept to design – and often to prototype. Collaboration is a key component of the capstone course.
What is the community response to the popular and growing fair? Most often, “Wow.”
