What is Lassonde Edge?
Lassonde Edge is a transitional program for new students entering university and all future technology leaders.
Through Edge’s seven modules, you will gain unique and complementary perspectives on life, work, learning, and the world after university. Each module is custom designed and delivered by Canada’s leading tech and design experts to help you gain a variety of tools to tackle almost any tech or social challenge.
By the end of the program, you will have built your own “personal compass” – a tool to apply these newly-gained perspectives – empowering you to succeed in the opportunities ahead of you in university and beyond.
