About UTEK

UTEK is U of T's flagship competition, held every January. The competitions challenge a wide variety of skills, such as design, communication, and teamwork, as well as give students the opportunity to network with academia and industry professionals. Competition winners are given the opportunity to compete at the provincial level at the Ontario Engineering Competition, and potentially at the national level at the Canadian Engineering Competition.
