Learn about IP over FREE PIZZA

Hey ECE grads, GECoS (the collaborative effort between all engineering graduate societies, who brought you Halloween pub night) has a professional development event for you:

Does your research have commercial potential?  Are you working with an industry partner?  Or are you interested using your research to do a technology start-up? Come and find out how to leverage your research to create IP (Industry Partnerships) and how that IP is used to build commercial value.

During this interactive workshop, you’ll go away knowing more about:

– What makes your research commercially relevant?

– UT Inventions Policy – who owns what and why and how to access IP for commercial use?

– How does all the money shake out when you make it?

This Lunch&learn event will be hosted by Karen Temple from the Innovations & Partnerships Office (IPO) at the University of Toronto.

Free lunch will be served for participants.


Date: Nov 15, 12-1:30pm

ECEGSS Elections & Orientation Pub Night

ello to all our returning students and a warm welcome to all our new students joining us this Fall term. We will be hosting our annual elections, followed by an orientation pub night, at the end of this month to kick off the beginning of term, introduce new students to their fellow ECE graduates, and elect new ECEGSS representatives for the ’17-’18 term!

In addition to the current positions we will be proposing the addition of two new positions, an Athletics Director and a Professional Development Director. We will vote on these new positions prior to the election, and if the motion is passed we will be accepting nominations for them on the day of the elections.

If you plan on attending the event, please make sure you register below so we know how much food to order. If you register for the pub night by the end of the day on Friday Sept. 15th you will receive two free drink tickets at the event. All other registrations received prior to the event will receive one free drink ticket.

Voting will take place at the event – voting by proxy is not permitted so be sure to attend and take part in the secret ballot (and eat/drink/mingle).
