On Saturday, November 28, the sixth annual Waterloo Nanotechnology Conference (WNC) will bring together students, employers, researchers and entrepreneurs to discuss the exciting future of nanotechnology. This virtual event provides an exclusive opportunity to learn about careers, opportunities and resources in the world of nanotechnology.
All students (high school, university, college and graduate) and industry professionals are welcome to join us as we explore three unique aspects of nanotechnology: health, environment and information.
Join us to learn more about the exciting research being conducted by masters students in the Chemical Engineering department.
Interested in learning the essentials of entrepreneurship?
In partnership with Entrepreneurship Society and Renison University College, join us at a Renison Workshop: Entrepreneurship 101 session to learn how to find the right problem and right solution from Conrad School Lecturer, David Rose.
The Conrad School is hosting a Speakers' Series as part of the annual Women Entrepreneurship Week 2020 global awareness and celebration.
Join us virtually on any of the following dates and times:
Tuesday, November 24th, between 12:00 p.m. and 12:45 p.m.
Thursday, November 26th, between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
Friday, November 27th, between 12:30 p.m. and 1:15 p.m.
The Department of Chemical Engineering is pleased to welcome you to hear Professor Eliza Fong discuss her work leveraging biomaterials engineering to build in vitro patient tumors that more closely reflect critical cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions in the tumor microenvironment. She will describe how growing cells in the third dimension influences the cancer cell phenotype and changes drug sensitivity. Her research will improve therapeutic opportunities for cancer patients.
On the 19-20th November, 2020, the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) will host the “International Workshop on Nanotechnology for a Sustainable Future”.
Future undergraduate engineering students are invited to join us for an admissions-focused webinar that will focus on the admissions process and cover topics like how to apply, tips for your Admissions Information Form (AIF), and more!
Our panellists will include our Director/Associate Director of Admissions as well as current students who successfully went through the process themselves.
This one-hour online webinar info session will focus on application and admission for international students. International academic equivalencies and English Language Proficiency (ELP) will be discussed in detail.
The Conrad School is hosting a lunch hour Speakers' Series as part of the annual Global Entrepreneurship Week 2020 global awareness and celebration. Please join us to hear 30-45-minute presentations covering entrepreneurship topics.
Please join us to hear a webinar by Professor Alison Scott (PhD ‘19), winner of the 2020 Park and Veva Reilly ChE Medal for Proficiency in Research. She will discuss her work on a general framework for the design of polymeric materials, which maximizes experimental resources and optimizes the resulting polymer product’s suitability for its intended application. Professor Scott will discuss two distinct (yet related) case studies to demonstrate that the framework can be useful in many industries and applications and for any type of polymeric material.
Register for this FREE, 4-week Mental Toughness program (1 virtual workshop/week on Mondays 6:00-7:30 pm, starting November 2, 2020). The program is tailored for women-identifying students, where you will learn how to cope with the stress and anxiety you face from living your life as a student, how to budget properly so that you can have financial freedom later, what skills you need to develop to become the leader you want to be (and how to develop them), and the truth behind health, nutrition and your body weight.
