Two Waterloo Engineering doctoral students will receive federal funding to support their research into the treatment of soft biological tissue disease and the separation of organic solvents to help reduce the industrial carbon footprint.  

Arya Amiri (systems design engineering) and Sharafat Ali (chemical engineering) have each won a prestigious Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship valued at $150,000 – $50,000 per year for three years during their doctoral studies. 

In the first event for the Trust in Research Undertaken in Science and Technology Scholarly Network (TRuST), Dean Mary Wells and a distinguished panel of experts, delved into the various challenges researchers and practitioners across disciplines face in building trust with the public.

The evening event, Conversations on Trust in Science and Technology Lecture Series on Tuesday, September 12, centred on how, as society faces crises like shifting geopolitical tensions, climate change and a strained health care system, it's vital to build public trust in research and the scientists who produce it.

A civil and environmental engineering professor joins an elite group of scientists worldwide as the recipient of a prestigious award recognizing her significant contributions to international water research.

Dr. Nandita Basu, a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Global Water Sustainability and Ecohydrology, has been awarded the American Geophysical Union (AGU)’s Joanne Simpson Medal for Mid-Career Scientists. The annual award honours individuals working in Earth and space sciences who have made notable scientific achievements while displaying exemplary character.

Nine students from around the world recently participated in Waterloo Engineering's first Sustainability and Social Entrepreneurship (SSEF) program. 

The program presented the students with a challenge centred on the complex issue of housing. More specifically, how to build 47,000 homes in a way that is sustainable and kind.  


Once upon a time, a group of recent Waterloo Engineering alumni organized regular lunches to stay in touch with their classmates.

Now, 52 years later, Jim Pike (BASc ’69, mechanical engineering) and Tom Corcoran (BASc ’69, electrical engineering) share why these friendships are so valuable later in life.  


Engineering is a profession long steeped in tradition, with the symbolism of hard hats and Iron Rings held in high esteem.

This September, the Faculty of Engineering is introducing a new tradition – the Waterloo Engineering pin - to symbolize students’ commitment to their studies and to each other.

Dr. Chul Min Yeum, an assistant professor in the civil and engineering department at the University of Waterloo, leads a team of researchers using technologies like 5G and augmented reality to identify structural issues in bridges, buildings and other infrastructure before disaster strikes.

Thanks to the University’s Rogers 5G Partnership, Yeum's team can use data-hungry technologies like computer vision and deep learning to improve disaster mitigation tools for civil engineers. 

Waterloo Engineering professors Dr. Kerstin Dautenhahn and Dr. Aiping Yu have been elected to the Royal Society of Canada's (RSC) class of 2023, as announced today by the prestigious society.

Dautenhahn and Yu are two of 101 fellows and members from across the country elected by their peers for outstanding scholarly, scientific and artistic achievements. In all, nine University of Waterloo researchers were announced as recipients of the elite distinction.  

Five incoming students at Waterloo Engineering are starting their studies with between $100,000 and $120,000 in backing from a prestigious scholarship program.

Eric Gao and Ammielle Wambo Becker of systems design engineering, Mahi Joshi of computer engineering, Mikael Haji of electrical engineering and Evie Bouganim of mechatronics engineering are among 10 campus-wide Schulich Leaders Scholarship winners at the University of Waterloo.

Two recipients of the prestigious national Loran scholarships have chosen the University of Waterloo for their academic careers.

Garvit Jain of electrical engineering and Steven Yang of software engineering will begin their undergraduate degrees this fall, each backed by a $100,000 scholarship.
