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.”
A robot designed to safely defuse landmines without an explosion was one of six major winners at the Norman Esch Capstone Design Awards competition for senior Waterloo Engineering students held March 30.
The next big innovation to hit the marketplace could be among the Waterloo student projects on display at the annual Capstone Design symposia beginning March 16.
Senior-year engineering students at Waterloo will exhibit projects ranging from a technology that reduces agricultural water waste through intelligent irrigation systems to a device that may help people with Parkinson`s disease avoid falls.
An easy-to-use system that enables farmers to reduce agricultural water waste through real-time data cleaned up at this year's Canadian Engineering Competition held at McGill University March 4-6.
Designed by five electrical and computer engineering students, Project Reservoir is an agricultural water control and environmental monitoring system consisting of low-cost field sensors which collect real-time soil and environmental conditions.
