Divena Raina

Introduce yourself briefly: 

My name is Divena Raina, and I am from Markham, Ontario. Currently, I am a 1B student in Management Engineering, class of 2027. 

Waterloo Engineering in one word: 


I chose Waterloo Engineering because: 

The University of Waterloo is one of Canada’s premier universities for engineering. I chose Waterloo Engineering because it provides a unique combination of in class learnings and co-op experiences to help shape my career. 

The best thing about my program is: 

What I really like about this program is that the learnings can be applied in a wide range of industries. It is a unique program that offers skills in programming, data analytics, optimization, organization analysis and other great topics! 

About my co-op experience: 

I look forward to having my first co-op this coming Spring 2023! 

I wish I had known before I came: 

Time management is key when transitioning into University and it is important to maintain a balance between academics and your personal life. 

Outside the classroom, I am involved in: 

● EngChats Ambassadors 

● Engineering Tour Guides 

A fun project I’ve completed: 

In 1A, for MSCI 100, I coded a financial planning tool using Excel and Visual Basics Applications. I liked how I could be creative with the project by adding different functionalities and designing an interactive interface. Overall, it was an enjoyable learning experience and I look forward to developing new skills for future projects in the program. 

One more thing about me: 

I love volunteering and giving back to my community!
