Management Engineering 2024

My name is Claudia and I am in 2A Management Engineering. I really enjoy being active and getting involved around campus with St.Jeromes, EngSoc, UW Varsity programs and research. Claudia De Fazio

Waterloo Engineering in one word:

Engaging

I choose Waterloo Engineering because:

The coop is an invaluable way of figuring out what you want, and don't want, to do as a career.

The best thing about my program is:

The variety of topics we learn about. Between industrial engineering topics, optimization and HCI, we learn about so many new and interesting things every term.

About my Co-op experience:

I have worked as a QA intern, looking at how we make sure websites are functioning to proper specifications. I did this at a large company, so learning about governance of data, and processes was an invaluable skill.

I wish I had known before I came:

Don't be afraid to ask the questions you want answered and look outside of Engineering to find opportunities for yourself.

Outside the classroom, I’m involved with:

Athletics as a varsity team member, campus ministry, EngSoc, UWaterloo IISE and Waterloo Ready peer mentorship. I also help with orientation as a leader.

One more thing about me:

I am very interested in research and am working in a lab during my school term this Fall.
