Future Engineering students

Shadow Days and Tours will be closed as the university moves to an online classroom through Winter 2021. 

To get in contact with an Ambassador, prospective students are encouraged to fill out an EngChat request or send an email to any ambassador with a profile.

How can our Ambassadors help you?

Each of our Ambassadors have a profile that you can read through to learn more about what they enjoy about their program, their co-op experiences, and any extra curricular activities they participate in on campus.

Feel free to contact any of our ambassadors, using the contact information on their profiles, with all your Waterloo Engineering questions!

Experience a day-in-the-life of a Waterloo Engineering student by requesting a Shadow Day with one of our ambassadors. Applications are open during regular classes, typically beginning two weeks after the start of each term (September, January, and May). 

Note: Shadow Days are currently not available due to COVID-19.

Visiting the Waterloo campus? Take an Engineering tour with one of the Ambassadors! This tour allows you to focus on Waterloo’s Engineering faculty, its facilities, programs, and student life. You’ll learn about labs, classes, and extracurricular activities — all from the perspective of a current student. To book a tour, please fill out the tour request form.

Note: Tours are currently not available due to COVID-19.

Can't make it to campus? Fill out an EngChat request and you can be matched with one of our Ambassadors for a video or voice call. We currently support Skype and Google Hangouts. This is a great opportunity for prospective students to connect with a current engineering student and ask questions!
