What we do

The InVEST Program staff facilitate initial matchmaking between UofT students and faculty and counterparts at international universities, enable quality virtual interactions between team members, and offer value-added opportunities for student teams to learn about effective teamwork strategies, intercultural understanding and communication and other pertinent topics that prepare them for work in the increasingly globalized and distributed engineering landscape.
