To encourage more domestic candidates to apply to our research-stream programs, we target top candidates from across Canada through a number of strategic initiatives: –– For the third year, we partnered with Canada’s top engineering schools through the Canadian Graduate Engineering Consortium to hold the U of T Graduate Engineering Fair and six similar events across the country in fall 2015. This initiative, which included stops at U of T, the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary, the University of British Columbia, Queen’s University, McGill University and the University of Waterloo, enabled us to reach more highly qualified students to promote the benefits of graduate education and the strengths of U of T Engineering.

–– In February 2016, we hosted 127 top students from other Canadian universities at our second Graduate Research Days event. We provided opportunities for these students to learn more about our programs, discover the innovative research of our faculty members and graduate students and meet prospective supervisors.

In addition to marketing our graduate programs in traditional print and online platforms, for the first time we also launched a graduate studies e-marketing campaign that used the web and social media to target engineering students across Canada. Our general graduate studies campaign ran from November 2015 to January 2016 and the MEng campaign from February to May 2016. We will evaluate the success of these campaigns after the 2016 recruitment cycle.
