Measuring Excellence In the 2015 calendar year, U of T Engineering faculty members were recognized with 16 major awards and honours for excellence in research and teaching and contributions to the engineering profession. Fourteen of those awards were from prestigious national and international engineering bodies, twice as many as any other Canadian engineering school. That figure represented 21 per cent of all national and international awards received by engineering professors across Canada, even though our faculty members comprise only 5.5 per cent of engineering faculty members nationally.
