Every year, six exceptional co-op students, one from each faculty, are recognized by the University of Waterloo for their contribution to their employer, their community and the further development of experiential education.
Among this year’s winners is Nathan Duarte – a third-year biomedical engineering student. Nathan has also been recognized as one of Canada’s 2018 Co-op Students of the Year by Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning (CEWIL) Canada.
Emily Lam, a fourth year biomedical engineering student, was also recognized and received the 2018 University of Waterloo Co-op Student of the Year Honourable Mentions.
“Across every discipline and level of experience you can find a student who has created a meaningful impact in their workplace,” said Ross Johnston, Executive Director of Co-operative Education at Waterloo. “The growing number of employers from all over the world who hire Waterloo students demonstrates the reaches of our reputation for excellence.”
This year’s winners truly exemplify the magnitude of work Waterloo students can accomplish across the globe.
