This term, Spring 2022, the Civil Engineering Capstone Design Project was back in-person (though we’ve kept the progress meetings online!) and created this collage of teams. It’s been a very busy and productive term for all the CIVE400 capstone teams that produced excellent conceptual and preliminary designs in their Phase 1.




As part of the Fourth Year Design Project and Capstone 2022, the team “Wastes to Treat Wastes Inc.” from Environmental Engineering received the ESTEN Foundation award by placing 1st in Canada, with an award value of $1,500.

CIVE Student leader + advocate

My name is Naomie Seh Abomo and I am a 3A Civil Engineering student. My industry interests include master planning and resilient urban development. In my free time, I partake in leadership roles such as Social Events, Vice President, and President of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) UW chapter and other roles that allow me to affirm and empower particularly black and underrepresented students. I also take great pleasure in singing and dancing, and spending quality time with my dear friends and family.

The University of Waterloo's Engineers Without Borders Chapter presents our Sustainable Engineering Design Challenge! If you are a high school student passionate about learning more about the engineering design process, excited about talking & learning from current engineering students & professors, and collaborating with like-minded individuals then this event is for you!

Our competition will be on March 20th from 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm where you will be competing in teams of 2-4. You can sign up with or without a team (we will place you in a team with other students). Sign up for a night of learning, innovating, competing, and most importantly, winning prizes!

Are you interested in quantum mechanics or cryptography?

Then check out CPI's next event on Feb 28th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Learn how quantum computers can create security risks and how we can mitigate them!

CPI's Michele Mosca and Sara Zafar Jafarzadeh discuss why it is important to act now, even though cryptographically-relevant quantum computers are not available.

The Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change's (IC3) Board of Directors has appointed Juan Moreno-Cruz from School of Environment, Enterprise and Development, Monica Emelko from Civil and Environmental Engineering, and 

During the days of Jan. 28-29, a team composed of four undergraduate students from the Faculty of Engineering, Planning, and Accounting & Financial Management Students at the University of Waterloo competed in the 8th edition of the Annual Ryerson Real Estate Case Competition “Expand Your Empire (EYE)” where they won both the First Place Grand Prize and the Most Feasible Design for a total cash prize of $11,500.

Nominated by current CEE graduate student, Soosan Bahramian, Monica Emelko was selected to receive one of the Faculty of Engineering’s Awards of Excellence in Graduate Supervision for 2021 and is being considered for the University-wide Award to be announced next month.

Join us for a special edition of Research talks, "Black History is World History: From Moment to Global Movement," featuring Michaëlle Jean, University of Waterloo Chancellor, St. Paul’s University College and former Governor General and Commander-in-Chief of Canada.
