Welcoming small groups of students back for return-to-campus pilot

With strict public health measures in place we’re happy to welcome a select group of students back to class this month at Casa Loma Campus. 

A small group of students from the Mechanical Technician — CNC and Precision Machining program returned to campus July 15 to complete the in-person shop components for two courses required for them to graduate. All students and faculty must wear masks and practice physical distancing. Small groups from other programs at the Centre for Construction and Engineering Technologies will also return over the summer.

This small group is part of a summer pilot program to prepare for the potential of more on-campus learning opportunities in the fall, as public health authorities permit. 

“Students believe the pilot is a good opportunity for them to complete the required shop components so they can graduate," said Adel Esayed, Dean, Centre for Construction and Engineering Technologies. “The faculty and staff find the pilot is a good way to test our capability to deliver the shop/lab portion of any course under the physical distancing restrictions.” 

We plan to welcome another small group of students from the School of Dental Health back to Waterfront Campus in August.  

“The most important thing for us is the safety of our students and employees," Esayed said. “We want our students and employees to feel comfortable and safe when they are on campus.”
