The InVEST Program aims at finding scalable approaches to enhancing international knowledge & experience for our students.




Together with faculty at partner universities we form collaborating student teams made up of UofT engineering students and counterparts at international universities. Graduate and senior undergraduate students are supervised by faculty at each university and work collaboratively on a research/design question of mutual interest. The research/design question may be specialized or of a multi-disciplinary nature and can be proposed by faculty or a collaborating company/organization in association with either university. Project duration varies and UofT students often gain academic credit for their work.
