Waterloo Engineering undergraduate teams won four major awards in this year’s Ontario Engineering Competition (OEC) in the Innovative Design, Programming and Re-engineering categories.
Hosted by the University of Guelph from January 17 to 19, OEC brought together engineering students from across the province to compete in eight unique challenges designed around the theme of Improve Life.
Waterloo Engineering teams won first and second place in the Innovative Design category.
Waterloo Engineering’s RoboHub is highlighted in an episode of the "The Age of A.I.", a documentary series covering the ways artificial intelligence, machine learning, and neural networks are changing the world.
Engineering 7’s state-of-the-art robotics research, testing, and training facility is profiled in Episode 6 entitled Will a robot take my job?, one of the world’s most googled questions.
Municipal transit services could increase ridership by co-ordinating with, not competing against, commercial ridesharing companies.
Waterloo Engineering researchers found that transit-ridesharing links in poorly serviced suburban neighbourhoods, where frequent bus service on fixed routes is cost-prohibitive, could help get people out of their cars by making transit more convenient.
