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 almost 10,500 students enrolled in 2019. In 2018/19, external research funding from Canadian and international partners exceeded $96 million, a strong indication of our extensive industry partnerships and the excellence of our engineering research programs.

  1. June 2, 2020Students help build worldwide antibody tracker

    A group of Waterloo Engineering students have contributed to the COVID-19 cause by helping to develop an online dashboard to track and synthesize the results of antibody studies from around the world.

    The five students - Nathan Duarte, Jordan Van Wyk, Austin Atmaja, Simona Rocco and Abel Joseph - teamed up with Canadians at universities in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom, plus a federal task force of experts, to pull off the ambitious project.

  2. June 2, 2020Researchers developing COVID tracking app

    As economies begin to reopen, Waterloo Engineering researchers are developing technology that will notify users and public health when individuals come in close contact with someone confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19.

    Patricia Nieva and William Melek, both Waterloo mechanical and mechatronics engineering professors, and their students are developing contact tracing software for an app called TraceSCAN.

  3. May 29, 2020Lecturer argues COVID lessons apply to climate fight

    Waterloo Engineering lecturer Nadine Ibrahim posed a compelling question in a recent opinion piece: can we use lessons learned during the COVID-19 crisis to also set our resolve to tackle climate change?

    Ibrahim, who holds the Turkstra Chair in Urban Engineering, argues that the structural and behavioural changes forced by the global pandemic could pave the way towards a truly sustainable - and still prosperous - way of life.
