Ontario premier tours Engineering AMC facilities

Friday, August 9, 2019

During a visit to Waterloo Region on Friday, Ontario Premier Doug Ford came to campus to see Professor Michael Worswick’s Waterloo Forming and Crash Lab and experience first-hand one of the largest academic laboratories for such research.

Worswick is co-Principal Investigator for the $35-million Ontario Advanced Manufacturing Consortium (OAMC), a joint initiative involving the University of Waterloo, McMaster University and Western University.

Funded by the Province of Ontario, the OAMC works with industry partners across a diverse range of markets to accelerate innovation and facilitate industry access to professional research staff, world-class equipment and large-scale infrastructure, enabling industry-focused R&D on rapid project timelines. 

Ross Romano, Ontario Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities, was also in attendance.
