Help shape the future of Systems Design Engineering!

All alumni of the Systems Design Engineering program (SYDE) are invited to join a virtual roundtable discussion on Wednesday July 19 or Thursday July 27 with the chair of the Department of Systems Design Engineering Dr. Lisa Aultman-Hall and select professors.

To meet the evolving needs of our society and profession, the department has embarked on a renewal of our undergraduate program curriculum. The faculty are excited to share a progress update and hear your response to the guiding principles that have informed this work. We invite you to be part of the conversation to help shape our world-leading program for problem-solving engineers.

In addition to meeting four of our brand-new faculty members, you will have an opportunity to share your thoughts, feedback, and ideas with Lisa, as well as ask questions. Register for one of the two date and time options – we hope you can join us!

Lisa Aultman-Hall Headshot
Dr. Lisa Aultman-Hall is Professor and Chair of the Department of Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. Dr. Aultman-Hall focuses on transportation systems, especially methods to collect unique databases for modeling and analysis of long-distance travel, transportation sector emissions, network resiliency, streetscape design, and non-motorized transportation. Until recently, she served several leadership roles at the interdisciplinary University of Vermont Transportation Research Center. Dr. Aultman-Hall is active with the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies where recent roles include chairing the National Transportation Data Committee and the 2018 National Household Transportation Survey (NHTS) Conference. Dr. Aultman-Hall brings modeling of real-world spatial behavior to the modeling of charging demand for electric vehicles with the Joint Clean Climate Transport Research Partnership (JCCTRP) led by the University of Quebec at Montreal. Her expertise in automated vehicles focuses on how they will be used for passenger travel including long-distance trips and elements of equitable access.
