Computer Engineering 2027
Jack Wang

Introduce yourself briefly: 

My name is Jack Wang. I’m currently in my first year in Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo and I am in the class of 2027. 

Waterloo Engineering in one word: 


I choose Waterloo Engineering because: 

I enjoy engaging in hands-on activities and I would like to expand my interests in the field of computer science and not just software. 

The best thing about my program is: 

It forces you to stay on top of your work and other endeavours. 

I wish I had known before I came: 

Learn about math and programming concepts outside of your classroom to best prepare and ease into the life of an engineer. 

Make friends with people both inside of your program and outside of your program. 

The burrito bowls in CMH’s food market are great 

Know when you could afford to be unproductive and act on it 

Outside the classroom, I’m involved with: 

As I’m writing this, I’m currently part of UWaterloo’s Computer Science Club and UWaterloo’s Orbital Design Team. I’m hoping to be a part of the Blockchain Club, the Data Science Club, the Badminton Varsity Team, the Chinese Student Association, the UW Blueprint Design Team, Waterloop, and Watonamous. 

A fun project I’ve completed: 

As I’m writing this, we haven’t completed any project in my term. However, I know that I will be looking forward to the project in my ECE 198 course where we have to use a hardware kit to create a hardware program. 

One more thing about me: 

My hobbies are reading classic novels, coding, and playing badminton.
