Ideas that change the world

“McMaster has a long history of impact and has translated its knowledge out to society for decades … whether it’s in health sciences or engineering, business or science, social science and humanities. We want to translate ideas and help society deal with problems, be it climate change, infectious diseases or fake news.”

Entrepreneurship is a mindset

“Entrepreneurship is about more than building companies, it’s a mindset. Especially for students, engaging in the entrepreneurial process is extremely valuable. You acquire skills around teamwork, collaboration and risk-taking. These are skills that are going to benefit students no matter what career path they choose.”

Sean Van Koughnett
Associate Vice-President (Students and Learning)
Dean of Students


What does Made at Mac mean?

“Made at Mac means two things to me. One: Innovations that positively impact our local and global society. Two: It’s about the people — the students, faculty, clinicians and staff who have been trained and developed at Mac and go out there and do innovative and impactful work.”
