Canada's Largest Engineering School
Ranked among the top 50 engineering schools worldwide, Waterloo Engineering is committed to leading engineering education and research.
We are the largest engineering school in Canada, with over 10,500 students enrolled in 2021. In 2019/20, external research funding from Canadian and international partners exceeded $86.8 million, a strong indication of our extensive industry partnerships and the excellence of our engineering research programs.
An interdisciplinary research team from the University of Waterloo is using artificial intelligence (AI) to identify microplastics faster and more accurately than ever before.
Led by Dr. Wayne Parker, a professor of civil and environmental engineering, the research team’s advanced imaging identification system could help wastewater treatment plants and food production industries make informed decisions to mitigate the potential impact of microplastics on the environment and human health.
An interdisciplinary research team from the University of Waterloo aims to tackle CO2 emissions in the value chain by transforming CO2 into valuable chemicals needed by industry.
Led by Dr. Luis Ricardez-Sandoval, a professor of chemical engineering, the research team aims to develop a computational framework that will accelerate the design and discovery of novel materials that will facilitate the transformation of CO2 into useful industrial gases using atomistic modelling, advanced optimization, machine learning techniques and laboratory experiments.
The Waterloo Engineering community rallied for Giving Tuesday on Nov. 28 to support two funds that empower students with the means to pursue their academic ambitions and prepare for professional success.
In total, 183 donors supported the Waterloo Engineering funds with $61,230 in donations.
We are excited to announce the 9th Annual Conference on Vision and Intelligent Systems (CVIS 2023), to be held on December 5-6th, where the goal is to bring together both academia and industry to share their joint expertise to promote the advancement and application of artificial intelligence, computer vision, and imaging technologies in various areas of academic and industrial interests. CVIS 2023 is free for all to attend and hosted at UW.
Learn how to get Management engineering skills with the Master's and PhD programs and the key steps to be accepted in the Department of Management Science and Engineering at the University of Waterloo.
Management science and engineering is a broad and interdisciplinary study of problem-solving and decision-making in organizations. It uses a combination of analytical models, data science, and behavioral sciences to address society's most complex problems.
This workshop hosted by Dallas Squire of Onkwehonwe Games offers participants the opportunity to learn about the history and culture of the people of the Six Nations (also called Haudenosaunee) through Traditional Games.
Interactive and hands-on, their approach to teaching is indigenous in its foundation. While learning about traditional games of the Six Nations of the Grand River, participants will simultaneously be learning about and experiencing local First Nations culture. In Kanyen'keha Onkwehonwe translates to ‘the original or first people’. The traditional way of many Onkwehonwe is to live in harmony with Mother Earth. Living in this good way requires a balance of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Games were and are still used as a way to stay healthy and connected to a person’s community. Six Nations traditional games are used to enhance individual and team skills, as well as create sportsmanship, connection and laughter.
This event is part of the “ADE for Game Communities: Enculturing Anti-Racism, Decolonization, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (ADE) in Games Research and Creation” series from the ADE Committee of the Games Institute, University of Waterloo, and is supported in part by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
