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 presents a set of goals and strategies aimed at achieving our aspiration to be a truly world-class school of engineering. With this new plan, we’ve set the stage for even greater success.
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 second progress report demonstrates excellent progress on many of our Vision 2015 goals.
With this report, we also begin the process of aligning our timelines with the University of Waterloo strategic plan (published in 2013), by extending our targets to 2018. In the next year, the Engineering Planning Committee will consult with our community members and review our current goals and strategies to ensure they are sufficient to meet our strategic needs to 2018.
