Nanotechnology Engineering at the University of Waterloo

Nanotechnology Engineering is a multi-disciplinary engineering field, which draws from and benefits areas such as materials science and engineering, chemistry, physics, biology, and medicine.

Waterloo's Nanotechnology Engineering programs are offered collaboratively through the Department of Chemical Engineering and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering, and the Chemistry Department in the Faculty of Science.

  1. Feb. 1, 2017Waterloo Undergraduate Nanotechnology Conference (WUNC) connects students, academia and industry

    More than 200 students, faculty and representatives from industry gathered at the second annual Waterloo Undergraduate Nanotechnology Conference (WUNC) to learn from each other about how nanotechnology is taught and used in industry. This successful student-organized event, held at the Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre in November, presented role models and inspiration to the next wave of nanotechnology engineers.

  2. Jan. 26, 2017New Nanotechnology Engineering Student Society underway

    Students from Waterloo’s Nanotechnology Engineering program will soon have a new student society to unify its cohorts and graduating classes and represent their concerns within the University’s larger engineering community. The Nanotechnology Engineering Student Society (NESS) aims to foster an alumni network, create an official forum for program-specific concerns, and organize and host outreach events for the program’s students and faculty.

  3. Nov. 18, 2016Medella Health named runner-up in Dyson Award competition

    Congratulations Medella Health for its 2016 James Dyson Award success! The Waterloo start-up won one of two international runners-up awards for its smart contact lens, which monitors its wearer’s glucose levels. Its noninvasive blood testing capability has the potential to revolutionize blood monitoring – to the benefit of millions of diabetics.

    Nanotechnology Engineering graduate Huayi Gao, co-founded Medella Health along with Waterloo Science graduate Maarij Baig and former Science and Business student Harry Gandhi.
