March 18 was our inaugural #GinaCodySchool Day — a celebration of our incredible community of students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends.

In recognition of her generosity and achievements in her field, the faculty was renamed the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science in 2018. It is the first university engineering faculty in Canada to be named after a woman. Learn more.
