Faculty of Applied
Science & Engineering
Sustainability touches all of our lives and engineers, especially those at U of T, are working on innovative solutions and inventions that make industry, cities and technologies more sustainable.
\"We’re building the technologies that will power the world cleanly in the future.\" Professor Ted...
U of T engineers are at the forefront of research in sustainable and renewable energy, clean water, bioremediation, power systems, sustainable mining practices and urban infrastructure. Sustainability is about creating efficiencies, applying creativity to challenging problems, providing new opportunities and protecting our scarce and non-renewable resources. It is about invention, not rejection. And it is about embracing innovation in a way that boosts the global knowledge economy and provides economic benefits and opportunities. Our research can also influence policy makers, institutions and the public to make informed decisions and bring about change.
Support of the Faculty’s exceptional research in such areas as the resilience of urban infrastructure, sustainable materials processing, mining innovation, energy storage, energy generation through anaerobic digestion and underground water remediation will allow us to re-imagine our built environments, preserve our planet and protect our world’s diverse species for the benefit of generations to come.
