Introduce yourself briefly:
My name is Meggin and I am in Chemical Engineering, class of 2021!
Waterloo Engineering in one word:
I choose Waterloo Engineering because:
To me I learn best by doing so the hands-on co-op experience really spoke to me.
The best thing about my program is:
How diverse the applications are and how much it can be integrated with other disciplines.
About my Co-op experience:
I have worked at companies such as Frito-Lay, Pepsico Beverages and Mondelez in a wide range of roles including production and project engineering.
I wish I had known before I came:
How great it is to have smaller class sizes for my core courses. I had never given it too much thought before choosing Waterloo.
Outside the classroom, I’m involved with:
Engineering Ambassadors, Intramural Sports and I work part time at Davids Tea.
A fun project I’ve completed:
Last term I worked in a group to optimize a polymer injection molding process.
One more thing about me:
I grew up in Victoria BC and am always happy to share my experience with transitioning as an out-of-province student.
