In its first year participating in Doors Open Toronto, U of T Engineering welcomed 1,200 people to the new Myhal Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship.
On May 25 and 26, the city-wide event created an opportunity for thousands of residents from across the Greater Toronto Area to explore more than 150 of the most architecturally, historically, culturally and socially significant buildings across the city.
Throughout the weekend, the nine-level Myhal Centre hosted a diverse range of activities and exhibits throughout its floors, illustrating the many ways the new building fosters collaboration, active and experiential learning, and sparks engineering innovation. Visitors also had the opportunity to interact with students and volunteers, as well as share their impressions on social media.
