A new Engineering Ambassador Team has been introduced to help future students find what undergraduate program is the best fit for their interests and skills. Recently launched, the team is comprised of current undergraduate students representing all 13 Waterloo Engineering undergraduate programs. Their goal is to share their unique experiences in the Faculty and at the University of Waterloo. Ambassadors will also be the hosts for the Grade 11 and 12 shadow program. A new website has been designed as a starting point for our future students.
