Strategic planning

Two female engineering students working

The Waterloo Engineering Strategic Plan 2020-2025 is our third formal strategic plan and is intended to direct activities within the Faculty of Engineering during this five-year period. The Faculty’s vision, priorities, and goals are the result of a two-year process led by the Engineering Planning Committee (EPC), and involved comprehensive self-studies by our Academic and Administrative units as well as widely consulting with our faculty, staff, and students. 

Through this process, we identified five priorities and their accompanying goals that will allow Waterloo Engineering to continue the momentum that already exists to ensure we are empowering our students, researchers, and staff to unlock potential and create positive change. With optimism and clarity, Waterloo Engineering’s 2020-2025 strategic plan builds on the success of our previous strategic plan and will further our quest to become the epicentre of world’s technology talent.

Our Vision:

"Waterloo Engineering will inspire leaders to define new frontiers. Upholding our tradition of co-operative education, we will continue to stimulate our entrepreneurial spirit and research imagination.

Above all, our engineers and architects are committed to serving society, and building a better future for generations to come."
