The University of Toronto (U of T) has unveiled Canada's first undergraduate engineering science program in machine intelligence, scheduled to launch in September with more than 40 students enrolled so far.

Says U of T's Deepa Kundur, "U of T Engineering has long been an international leader in machine intelligence, making this the perfect place to launch this pioneering program."

In January, the university launched the Master of Engineering in Analytics program, which provides instruction in techniques and strategies to translate large data sets into useful insights.

The university’s new Myhal Center for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship will host the new Institute for Robotics and Mechatronics, as well as prototyping facilities, and space for interaction among students, faculty, alumni, industry partners, and business mentors.
