Go From Creative to Creator
Engineers and scientists are the creators who turn ideas into reality.
At Lassonde, we are fiercely committed to creating positive change for our students, our communities, and the world around us by empowering creators to put ideas into action that push the world forward.
We take abstract ideas and seemingly impossible problems and create practical solutions and design things that have never been made before.
