In March, the University of Waterloo hosted the 3 Minute Thesis Competition (3MT) - a university-wide competition providing graduate students the opportunity to share their research with a non-specialist audience in three minutes with one static slide. Cash prizes were at stake, and the potential to advance and participate in the provincial finals held at Queen’s University.
Wayne Loucks, an electrical and computer engineering faculty member, has been reappointed as associate dean, undergraduate studies from July 1, 2013 to December 31, 2015. Loucks has served as the associate dean for engineering undergraduate studies since 1998.
"He continues to work in the interests of our growing number of undergraduates," says dean of engineering Pearl Sullivan in a memo to faculty and staff about Loucks' reappointment. "I know that all the departments are grateful that he has agreed to continue leading this important portfolio for the Faculty."
