What is the MME Clinic?

The MME Clinic inspires better student learning through authentic engineering activites including hands-on, practical applications, and engagement with the community in a space where students can experience integration between topics, courses, and programs.

WATiMake is home to the MME Clinic. It is a MME undergraduate student facility equipped with rapid prototyping tools and equipment to encourage the integration of engineering design into class activities. WATiMAKE is located in the Douglas Wright Engineering (DWE) building in room 3508 and 3509. MME Clinic staff assist students with their projects and activities, develop new activities, provide instruction on safe use of equipment, and maintain the facility.

SolidWorks Certification Program

The University of Waterloo currently offers two exams from the SolidWorks Certification program: 

  • SolidWorks Certified Associate (CSWA)
  • SolidWorks Certified Professional (CSWP)

These are designations that demonstrate a user's proficiency of mechanical design using SolidWorks.

If you are interested in taking either the CSWA or CSWP exam, more information can be found in the 2024 SolidWorks Certification Presentation.
