Vision 2010 campaign

View of Engineering 5 overpass across Ring Road

Canada's premier engineering school

The Faculty’s Vision 2010 strategic plan has guided Waterloo Engineering over the last five years and it has led us to a position where we are the top engineering school in Canada and counted among the leading engineering schools in North America.

Our vision was not simply to become bigger by increasing our faculty complement, the number of graduate students or by adding additional space for learning and research. Our vision was to grow strategically in areas that would enhance the overall quality of our educational and research programs.

We are very proud of the progress made to-date.
