When Katie Arnold needed solder for an engineering project she didn’t need to travel far to get it.
The fourth-year mechanical engineering student stopped by RidgidWare, an electronic components and hardware shop conveniently located across from the C&D and beside the Engineering Ideas Clinic in Engineering 7.
The Ontario Advanced Manufacturing Consortium (AMC), a joint partnership between McMaster University, University of Waterloo, and Western University, is helping to accelerate industry adoption of advanced manufacturing technologies, which will create jobs and strengthen the province’s reputation as a leading manufacturing region.
Since AMC was launched in April 2017, nearly 100 companies have benefited from the advanced manufacturing experts and state-of-the-art facilities at Waterloo.
Top Waterloo teams at this year’s Ontario Engineering Competition (OEC) will compete against the best from across Canada on campus later this winter.
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.”
