MIHIL

Graduate 2016, Neuroscience “When I got a phone call that I would be receiving these awards I was really surprised and wasn’t sure what to say.” Mihil is last year’s recipient of the John Black Aird Scholarship for the top student at U of T. It was the fourth year in a row a student from U of T Scarborough has received the honour. He also received the Governor General’s Silver Medal, awarded to the graduating student with the highest marks among all U of T science students. “What I appreciate about the labs I worked in at UTSC is that you get to try everything – running experiments, analyzing data, writing reports,” Mihil says. “It’s diverse training that you may not get elsewhere.”

The feature also intends to help production companies save money by reducing the time needed for physical rehearsals. The wearable technology tracks a dancer or choreographer performing a routine. Bracelets then track how other dancers match the base routine. The app calculates statistics for a dancer’s accuracy, tracks their improvement over time and highlights moves they have difficulty with. William and Axel attribute their success to the tools and mentors they had access to while collaborating in The Hub.

Becky chose UTSC because of the wellknown Co-op International Development Studies program.

To round out her experience, Becky was heavily involved on campus with a variety of clubs and associations, aligned with both her academic and personal interests. “I think that is why UTSC turned out to be the perfect fit for me; a smaller campus and a smaller program where the professors know me by name. I got to work closely with people who are highly motivated, invested in social issues, and extremely talented.”

Co-op Chemistry and Environmental Science “When I was a high school student, I had a passion towards pursuing further studies in the chemistry field. Reflecting on my undergraduate years, I definitely can say that not only was I able to follow my passion but I can also proudly say that I would not have chosen any other program or school for my undergraduate studies. My program provided me with a platform to build my knowledge not only through readings and lectures but also by hands-on experience in laboratory environments. Upon completion of my first year of undergraduate studies, my desire for Chemistry grew much more progressively resulting in my interest to apply for the Co-op Program. This outstanding co-op program not only allowed me to take the theory I learned in classes and apply it in a work setting, but allowed me to enhance many soft skills and make many different connections. Moreover, I had the privilege of developing close relationships with professors, teaching assistants and lecturers.” Viewbook 2018/2019
