    Robert Ho (BASc 2014) now works as a Chemical Process Development Engineer.

    Robert Ho (BASc 2014) is proof positive of the old adage to follow our interests and the details will take care of themselves.

    His enjoyment of math, science and building things inspired him to study nanotechnology engineering. Now, as Chemical Process Development Engineer for Siemens Healthineers, the broadness of the nano program helps him "contribute to virtually any technical conversation, whether it’s mechanical, electrical, or chemical in nature."

    In this profile, he shares why he chose UWaterloo, some of his undergrad experiences and his top three tips for students.
