Department of Knowledge Integration

The Department of Knowledge Integration is home to two unique programs: the Bachelor of Knowledge Integration undergraduate degree; and Waterloo Unlimited, a one-of-a-kind high school enrichment program.

We are committed to providing education and enrichment opportunities that transcend traditional disciplines and prepare our students to adapt to and engage with our complex world.

  1. Sept. 30, 2016KI alumni team up in design project competition

    Alexandra Olarnyk, BKI '15, Adam Thorsteinson, BKI '14, and Rebecca Mendes from Waterloo's GBDA program, recently worked on a very cool project.

    They entered a package design competition and their design was chosen into the top 40 of the best works, after a jury analyzed over 700 entries from 46 countries. It was displayed in Prague at the CZECHDESIGN Gallery.

    The challenge was to design a cardboard package that can be used again after its initial use.
