The Centre for Global Engineering (CGEN) is a multidisciplinary research institute at the University of Toronto which is mobilizing engineering researchers and students to solve the world's most intractable problems. Our mandate is two-fold:

      To catalyze cutting-edge engineering research, and produce evidence-based solutions to the Grand Challenges facing the world's most vulnerable populations. To date, we have undertaken research projects which tackle food insecurity, water access, sanitation, energy poverty, safe housing, education, and community capacity-building both in low-income countries and in indinginous communities here in Canada

      To train the next generation of engineers to adapt to growing trends in globalization and to become effective global citizens

We accomplish these goals through a range of programs which you can learn more about here:
