Experiential Learning

Innovation is about the translation of knowledge to create societal benefits. But how does this happen? The University of Toronto creates the largest pool of knowledge in Canada through world-class and leading-edge research. But the translation of that knowledge only happens if we have a skilled workforce ready to drive innovation.

The Impact Centre’s undergraduate courses introduce students to innovation, entrepreneurship and research into specific technologies.

Building on our undergraduate courses, we offer a chance for students to experiment with innovation and entrepreneurship by getting involved with developing companies in our work-integrated learning programs.
