Waterloo Engineering students placed first and third in both the Innovative Design and Senior Design categories and second in the Junior Design category at OEC held at McMaster University earlier this month. The first and second place teams will move on to compete in the Canadian Engineering Competition (CEC) to be held March 1-3 in Engineering 7.
Waterloo Engineering research received a boost with the awarding of two Canada Research Chairs (CRCs) included in a national announcement to help “keep Canadian research at the forefront of discovery today and in the future.”
With the help of seven University of Waterloo co-op students, Canada’s first Spatial Atomic Layer Deposition (SALD) system is up and running. At the celebratory ribbon cutting on May 10, 2018, project leader Professor Kevin Musselman said he couldn’t have done it without the co-op students who helped design and build the machine.
“I was sitting at my desk the whole time. I don't think I ever lifted a finger so it was entirely built by the students,” laughs Musselman.
