Alumni friendships built over five decades

Friday, September 8, 2023

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.  

Waterloo Engineering has changed significantly over the past five decades since Pike and his classmates graduated. Today’s students and faculty come from all over the world, cohorts are bigger, competition is fierce, technological resources are extraordinary and The Tool got serious.

But one thing remains the same: the Waterloo Engineering student experience bonds you for life.
