Entrepreneurship is a vital part of the FEAS ecosystem—and a central feature of that ecosystem is the Norman Esch Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship Awards program. The Esch Awards provide financial assistance to current FEAS students with the purpose of enabling new, innovative ideas for products, inventions and technologies that are relevant to the Canadian economy now and in the future. Since 2013, the Esch Foundation has given $2 million to support student entrepreneurship at FEAS, furthering the research, development and commercialization of ideas for 245 students and counting.
For more information on the entrepreneurship opportunities at FEAS, including the Esch Awards, visit our Entrepreneurship page.
Featured Student Entrepreneurs
At FEAS, our student leaders do outstanding work outside of the classroom. Their contributions strengthen our university community and help foster diversity and engagement.

Student Volunteer Shoutout
The Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science Dean's List recognizes undergraduate students' outstanding academic achievement in an academic year. To be eligible for consideration, you must:
- Carry an average unit load of 4.0 billing units or higher for the two terms of the academic year under consideration (fall and winter).*
- Obtain a minimum GPA of 3.5 for the academic year under consideration. The minimum GPA applies for both the fall and winter terms exclusively, in addition to your overall GPA for the year.
- Obtain passing grades in all courses and a clear academic standing for both terms.
- Not have received any Disciplinary Notations (DNs) in the academic year under consideration.
*For chemical engineering students, the winter term of the fifth semester and the fall term of the sixth semester will be weighed against the Dean’s List criteria when reviewing eligibility, to compensate for the mandatory co-op program requirements.
