Partnerships established between Waterloo and NUS

Thursday, June 28, 2018

Six collaborative research partnerships were established at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and University of Waterloo Workshop on Biomedical Imaging, Devices and Robotics held earlier this month on Waterloo’s campus. 

The partnerships between the two universities support student mobility and joint supervision, research and potential publications. The new agreements complement the five established between NUS and Waterloo professors at a workshop hosted by NUS in Singapore last November.

A total of 24 faculty members took part in the Waterloo workshop hosted by Rick Culham, Waterloo’s vice-dean of engineering and associate dean, international.

NUS representatives also held a presentation for engineering doctoral and post-doctoral students who might be interested in participating in NUS’s new entrepreneurial incubator program called Start-up Runway. The initiative is designed to train doctoral students and post-docs in starting a company based on their research expertise and results.
