Do the impossible.
Engineers and scientists are the creators who turn ideas into reality. At the Lassonde School of Engineering at York University, we are fiercely committed to creating positive change for our students, our communities, and the world around us by empowering creators to put ideas into action that push the world forward. We take abstract ideas and seemingly impossible problems and create practical solutions and design things that have never been made before.
