We are the largest engineering school in Canada, with over 10,100 students enrolled in 2018. 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. Oct. 22, 2019Researchers invent a better way to coat liquid drops

    Technology invented by researchers at Waterloo Engineering could improve the targeted delivery of drugs within the human body.

    The researchers developed a faster, cheaper way of coating and protecting liquid drops as they fall through a thin layer of liquid shell, a process that uses gravity and other natural forces.

  2. Oct. 21, 2019 RidgidWare offers everything from nuts and bolts to tools

    When Katie Arnold needed solder for an engineering project she didn’t need to travel far to get it.

    The fourth-year mechanical engineering student stopped by RidgidWare, an electronic components and hardware shop conveniently located across from the C&D and beside the Engineering Ideas Clinic in Engineering 7.

  3. Oct. 16, 2019System uses AI to identify collapsed lungs from x-rays

    Researchers at Waterloo Engineering have developed technology that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to identify collapsed lungs from chest x-rays with greater accuracy than radiologists.

    The system can now identify 75 per cent of cases - compared to less than 50 per cent for medical experts using chest x-rays - and researchers are working to boost that rate to more than 90 per cent.
