The University of Waterloo is building one of the largest university-based facilities in the world to advance additive manufacturing (AM) and help companies adopt AM processes for innovative and customized products.

Backed by nearly $27 million in cash and in-kind support, the lab will enable Canadian companies to tap the enormous potential of AM, commonly known as industrial 3D printing, while also further developing the technology through research.

Researchers at National Taiwan University have recognized the University of Waterloo as an impressive force among Canada’s engineering institutions. Waterloo Engineering ranked second in Canada in the 2015 Taiwan Ranking’s engineering field, and first for Chemical Engineering. The University of Waterloo also ranked in Canada’s top five for the Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science and Mechanical Engineering subjects.

Two graduate students will represent the Faculty of Engineering on April 2, 2015 at the University of Waterloo's 3rd annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competitionCompetitors have 1 static slide and 3 minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their research to a non-specialist audience.

In March, the University of Waterloo hosted the 3 Minute Thesis Competition (3MT) - a university-wide competition providing graduate students the opportunity to share their research with a non-specialist audience in three minutes with one static slide. Cash prizes were at stake, and the potential to advance and participate in the provincial finals held at Queen’s University.

Top engineering students from coast to coast, as well as from China, Bangladesh and India, spent last weekend on campus finding out about Waterloo Engineering’s graduate programs and what our university and community has to offer. During the 50 Grads Weekend, held from November 3 to 6, students met with potential graduate studies advisers, learned about our research programs and centres, found out about funding opportunities and heard about collaborations with technology, automotive, financial, health and environmental companies.

The University of Toronto is offering an Advanced Skills in Journalism for Engineers program for engineering alumni and engineering graduate students who wish to work in media. The program will provide up to 10 engineers with eight months of mentored experience as freelance business correspondents to major news organizations in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. including: the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star, Postmedia Network , the Thomson Reuters Foundation, The Financial Times, the BBC and The Washington Post.

Engineering graduate students and alumni are invited to attend Engineering Connections on November 8, 2011 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the Best Western hotel in Orangeville. The free networking event for engineers of all disciplines, experience levels, and graduate students exploring employment opportunities is sponored by the Workforce Planning Board of Waterloo Wellington Dufferin.

Prithula Prosun, a recent graduate of Waterloo’s School of Architecture, was recently honoured by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada for applying leading-edge research to real-world situations. Prosun, one of 12 recipients of the NSERC 2011 Innovation Challenge Awards, was recognized for her work on low income flood-proof technology (LIFT) housing for the Bangladeshi poor. For her architecture master’s thesis Prosun developed a house that rises with flood waters and then lowers once flooding recedes.

Morteza Ahmadi, a Waterloo systems design doctoral candidate, has been honoured with the Krescent (Kidney Research Scientist Core Education and National Training Program) Allied Doctoral Award for his project on a nanotechnology-based wearable artificial kidney. The award is one of only two presented this year by the Canadian program. Ahmadi’s doctoral supervisor is John Yeow of systems design engineering.
