Hackers at the University of Waterloo topped counterparts at more than 2,000 other schools to take first-place honours in a North American league for the popular invention competitions.
The result reflected the fact over 3,200 Waterloo students took part in more than 150 events supported by Major League Hacking (MLH) during the 2017-2018 season and finished in the top three at 30 of them.
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.
Waterloo Engineering faculty members have become new fellows of IEEE and the Engineering Institute of Canada.
Kerstin Dautenhahn, a cross-appointed professor of electrical and computer engineering and systems design engineering, was named an IEEE fellow for her contributions to social robotics and human-robot interaction.
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.”
