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.
One key feature of Waterloo Engineering’s strategic planning process is an annual review, which allows us to examine our progress and propose changes in direction. Our third progress report demonstrates excellent progress toward many of our strategic goals.
With this report we have aligned our timelines with the University of Waterloo strategic plan (published in 2013) by extending our strategic plan to 2018. We have maintained our Vision 2015 aspiration, key priorities and baseline, but we will no longer be using the Vision 2015 title. Following a thorough review by the Engineering Planning Committee, some goals and strategies have been updated to meet our strategic needs to 2018.
