The theme of the inaugural Canadian Design Workshop is Designing Engineering Design Education in Canada. Participation by attendees will be in the form of podium or poster sessions, grouped by theme. Two-page abstracts are due March 1, 2020.
The Canadian Coastal Resilience Forum and the Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change are pleased to present our inaugural documentary screening of the film Anthropocene: The Human Epoch. A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet, ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch is a four years in the making feature documentary film from the multiple-award winning team of Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier and Edward Burtynsky. The film follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group who, after nearly 10 years of research, are arguing that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century, because of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth.
Speaker: Prof. Mohamed Bakr
Title: Effective Teaching of Engineering Courses Using Flipped Classrooms
Date: 25 February, 2020
Invited By: Omar Ramahi
Invited teams of Engineering students will be competing:
- for surprise Challenge Game theme when they arrive at E7-2317 (Conrad Hub)
- for half-hour to earn House (Engineering Departments) points
- for the Winter 2020 season (there are three games scheduled over lunch hour this Fall season)
Lunch will be provided to FANS and TEAMS! But you must pre-register to attend.
Learn more about Enterprise Co-op (E Co-op), a program that allows students to start their own business while earning a co-op credit.
Have you ever wanted to join a hackathon, but thought it was only for coders? Well, Hack the Plastics wants you! Hack the Plastics is a broad skilled hackathon that does not require a coding based final product and will happen from 28th Feb – 1st March, 2020 at the University of Waterloo. You will be tackling ways to fight single use plastic pollution using microbes and producing a technical solution, business plan, and pitch.
Artificial intelligence is changing how the most complex problems in the world are tackled. Whether it’s disease prevention, global refugee crisis mitigation, flood forecasting, marine protection, detecting diseased crops or fighting deforestation are AI has several applications in the developing world.
If entrepreneurship is in your future, let us help you get there.
There will be lots to discover and explore at Civil, Environmental & Geological Engineering's Capstone Design Symposium.
For more information on all the research projects that will be presented, please see the 2020 Civil, Environmental & Geological Engineering Capstone Design Projects page and join us on March 24 to come and explore for yourself! Students will be present from 1:00 pm until 4:30 pm to show and discuss their research.
