Stay in touch. Get engaged. Make an Impact.

Impact is the University of Toronto Department of Materials Science & Engineering’s magazine. Named after a traditional materials testing technique, it also describes how members of our community make a difference and influence their peers through excellence and personal dedication.

Published annually from 2012 to 2015, the magazine featured the talent and commitment of our alumni, faculty, students, and staff to engage our stakeholders and the engineering community at large.
