SPOTLIGHT:



McMaster Engineering's focus on experiential learning

Engineers of the future will be as multifaceted as the world they work in. The complexity of the problems they will be called upon to solve and the multitude of forces acting upon them – social, political, cultural and environmental to name a few – will require them to be critical thinkers and adroit innovators, says Dr. Ishwar K. Puri, McMaster University’s dean of engineering.
