In order to address the diversity of disciplines, concentrations, experience, interests, and ambitions of the MEng students, E295 has a variety of course sections with different goals and deliverables. In the Fall, the objective of the course is to allow each student to hone in on their individual communication skills.
Your goal is to enroll in a section that most closely corresponds with your experience and goals, so please review the information below carefully.
Please note that the course will appear as Engineering 295 Communications for Engineering Leaders on the transcript regardless of your section/stream.
