Waterloo Shadow Days Program 

If you are interested in a first-hand glimpse into what it's like to be a student in Waterloo Engineering, register for a shadow day!

You'll have the opportunity to have a day-in-the life experience, attending classes and labs with a current Waterloo engineering student. Details on how the program works

Please note: We will do our best to accommodate your request for specific dates, please understand that you may need to be flexible.

Shadow days are only available Monday-Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm (during class time).
