A scene from Star Wars and iced coffees from Tim Hortons provided inspiration for one of six winning projects pitched by University of Waterloo engineering students this week at the Norman Esch Capstone Design Awards competition.
Two professors at Waterloo Engineering will be the recipients at convocation ceremonies this spring of awards for exceptional teaching.
Sanjeev Bedi, a professor of mechanical and mechatronics engineering, and Dan Davison, an electrical and computer engineering professor, will each be honoured with a Distinguished Teaching Award. The prestigious awards come with $1,500 to pursue teaching excellence.
An endoscope for arteries and a wearable oxygen device are the goals of two Waterloo Engineering student teams that have won $50,000 each to turn their fourth-year design projects into business startups.
