Strategic planning

Following the completion of Waterloo Engineering’s extremely successful Vision 2010 plan period, we initiated a comprehensive planning exercise that resulted in the second strategic academic plan for the Faculty of Engineering.

Published in May 2012, Vision 2015: Building on Excellence presented a set of goals and strategies aimed at achieving our aspiration to be a truly world-class school of engineering. In 2014 we aligned our timelines with the University of Waterloo strategic plan (published in 2013) by extending our strategic plan to 2018.  

Final Report

In 2018 we successfully closed our strategic planning process. Our Vision 2015+ Strategic Plan has shaped the future of Waterloo Engineering for the next 60 years. Through this plan, we made significant advancements including the building of world-class infrastructure, introducing new undergrad programs, expanding the quality of our graduate studies and reinforcing our ongoing commitment to nurturing entrepreneurship.
