A student design team from Waterloo Engineering recently took first place in its class for the second year in a row at an international rocketry competition in New Mexico.
Waterloo Rocketry, which is comprised primarily of engineering undergraduates, successfully launched its new rocket, Unexploded Ordnance (UXO), to an altitude of 13,412 feet to top 14 teams in the hybrid and liquid rocket category.
Six collaborative research partnerships were established at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and University of Waterloo Workshop on Biomedical Imaging, Devices and Robotics held earlier this month on Waterloo’s campus.
The partnerships between the two universities support student mobility and joint supervision, research and potential publications. The new agreements complement the five established between NUS and Waterloo professors at a workshop hosted by NUS in Singapore last November.
People with diabetes would be able to monitor their blood sugar without drawing blood using a system that is now being developed at the University of Waterloo.
In a recent study, a large research team led by Waterloo Engineering professor George Shaker combined radar and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to detect changes in glucose levels without the need for painful finger pricks several times a day.
Ric Soulis, a longtime Waterloo civil and environmental engineering professor, died June 21 after a brief illness.
Born in Toronto in 1949, Ric was raised in Kitchener where he attended Eastwood Collegiate Institute. He received his BASc in civil engineering in 1972 from the University of Waterloo and then attended Memorial University of Newfoundland.
