Our Vision


Wearable computing is becoming the next transformational technology that is shaping the future of the technological landscape. WearTech is a platform that provides students with resources and bridges them to the wearable industry. We are more than just a student club.

WearTech is an engineering student club started by a group of University of Toronto students to make wearable technology more accessible to students who wish to gain greater understanding and develop skills related to the industry.

Our goal at WearTech is to promote and enrich students with knowledge pertaining to wearable technologies through workshops, seminars, and design projects. Students will be working with cutting-edge technologies including, but not limited to, software development, mobile development, embedded systems programming, hardware programming, and mechanical prototyping.
