Evie Bouganim

Evangeline Bouganim

One of the Schulich Leaders in Waterloo Community.

Evie Bouganim, a first-year mechatronics engineering student. For as long as she could remember, Evie loved solving problems, learning new things, and spending most of her free time on the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team, where she held several leadership positions. That’s why it’s no surprise that she’s found a great match with the mechatronics engineering program.   

Evie says she’s most looking forward to “being in a program that’s tailored to content I love and being surrounded by like-minded peers.”  

She has aspirations to lead the design and development of robotics and automation systems with specific application to the biotechnology industry when she graduates.  

The choice to attend Waterloo was a no-brainer for Evie after feeling “welcomed” with every EngChat match and club fair she attended on campus, but it is the university’s “prestigious engineering, co-op programs and faculty that made the decision easy,” she says.
