Engineering Research Office - Centres and Institutes

Many researchers in Engineering are organized into clusters that promote the key thrust areas for research promoted by the University and Faculty. Sanctioned by the University Senate, centres and institutes are established in areas where Waterloo has extraordinary research strengths, and anticipates extraordinary results.

Internally, centres co-ordinate infrastructure and resources, encourage collaboration, and integrate research from one end of a system to another. Externally, centres foster partnerships with industry and government, and raise the profile of Waterloo's research in strategic areas.
