Friend of the Faculty Award

This prestigious award, created in 2005, was established to provide tangible recognition to an individual, company, organization, group, or foundation for their support of the Faculty of Engineering. The Faculty of Engineering is supported by many friends but some may not have necessarily graduated from Waterloo Engineering.

The award will examine accomplishments based, but not limited, on the following criteria:

  • volunteerism
  • promotion and publicity of the Faculty
  • fundraising efforts
  • financial assistance
  • hiring graduates and co-op students
  • research collaborations
  • government support
  • University governance
  • participation as speaker or lecturer

This award will recognize the important role that the community plays in supporting the University of Waterloo and the Faculty of Engineering.
