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.

Two management engineering teams won the top two awards in the undergraduate category at this year's Canadian Operations Research Society (CORS) 2015 Student Paper Competition held in Montreal.  A third team placed in the competition's top five. All the students' papers were also their 2015 Waterloo Engineering Capstone Design projects.

A Waterloo Engineering Team  won the 2015 Electric Mobility Canada Student Competition, an event co-sponsored by AddÉnergie and Electric Mobility Canada. The award came with a $4,500 charging station for Waterloo.

At the competition held in Halifax teams were presented with an electric vehicle (EV) power train configuration and battery charging issue to resolve. Each team prepared a presentation of its issue, a solution and a plan for adoption. The Waterloo team proposed a Metal/Air – LiIon Hybrid vehicle as the technical solution:
