Seminar on Engineering at York University

Richard Hornsey, D.Phil, P.Eng.
Associate Dean, Faculty of Science & Engineering, York University

Computer, Geomatics and  Space engineering programmes offered by York University will be discussed.

Engineering at York University was founded in 2001 and the first of our pioneering students graduated in 2005. The new School of Engineering with its offices in the Computer Science and Engineering Building, was founded to provide a unique and dynamic engineering environment within the Faculty of Science and Engineering. In response to the needs of engineering in the 21st century, York University offers three exiting engineering programs: Computer Engineering, Geomatics Engineering, and Space Engineering. The school now consists of approximately 180 undergraduate students and 27 faculty.

The presentation will highlight the programs offered, disciplines, available facilities, and current research in the faculty. Noting also future directions and involvement in the engineering community. Followed by a tour of the robotics, communications, VR, surveying facilities, and space instrumentation labs.
