Two Waterloo Engineering grads have won prestigious EY Ontario Entrepreneur Of the Year awards for their individual contributions and spirit of entrepreneurship. Both entrepreneurs, John Baker and Matt Rendall, received their well-deserved awards at the Ernst & Young Awards Gala in Toronto on October 24, 2013.
The University of Waterloo is “Canada’s Silicon Valley” and the place to be “if you’ve got a big technology idea to turn into a billion-dollar company,” according to the annual Globe and Mail Canadian University Report released this week.
The report highlights Waterloo’s “massive co-op program”, the largest in the world, and points out that the university offers Canada’s only undergraduate degree in nanotechnology engineering.
Ahmed Abdelrahman, a mechanical engineering master's student, won the top Peer Recognition award in the Poster Presentation/Competition at the recent Canadian Wind Energy Association meeting and annual research meeting of the NSERC funded Wind Energy Strategic Network (WESNet) held in Toronto. His winning poster was entitled Experimental Testing of Load Alleviation using Trailing Edge Flaps: Rig Design and Instrumentation.
