Summer orientation welcomes a new cohort of Master of Engineering students

Peter Frise, associate dean of engineering for professional programs, welcomed Master of Engineering students at an orientation session on Friday, May 3.

The day included presentations on academic policies, course requirements, faculty advising, students’ rights, peer support, and mentorship, followed by a campus tour provided by the representatives of the Engineering Society and lunch at the campus Whamburg location.

Students finished the orientation with a bingo game run by alumni development co-ordinator RJ Sivanesan as an icebreaker to help people get to know each other and have a little fun as they build their community at the University of Windsor.

“Windsor Engineering is delighted to welcome our incoming Master of Engineering students who have chosen Canada from many countries all over the world,” Dr. Frise says.

“The MEng program is a gateway to advanced engineering excellence. It is a great example of higher education and provides a strong foundation for students to expand their technical expertise and develop professional skills.”

He calls the program more than simply an academic pursuit: “the MEng degree is a life-changing opportunity that gives students the knowledge and abilities to succeed in the engineering industry in Canada.”

The orientation sessions demonstrate the University’s commitment to student achievement, paving the way for a successful future for all MEng candidates, says Frise.

“Through its demanding academic program, state-of-the-art resources, and nurturing campus community, students are equipped to tackle the challenges posed by the dynamic environment in industry.”

The next cohort of students will be welcomed in September for the fall 2024 term. Learn more about the Master of Engineering program.
