  2. Aug. 21, 2018Nebula wins $5k award at Velocity Fund Finals

    Congratulations to Nanotechnology Engineering’s Aurora Torrijos and Environmental Engineering’s Dana Shahry whose team, Nebula, won $5,000 in seed money at the 22nd Velocity Fund Finals in July. Their prize includes an offer to live in Velocity Residence, an innovative and entrepreneurial environment where students have access to the latest technologies and the opportunity to learn from a network of mentors and entrepreneurs.

    With Nebula, third-year students Torrijos and Shahry are developing systems to provide clean drinking water through fog harvesting.

  3. Aug. 3, 2018WEEF funding supports NE labs

    The Waterloo Engineering Endowment Foundation (WEEF) has been a long-time, strong supporter of the Nanotechnology Engineering program. It continued that support in the Spring 2018 term with a very generous and appreciated contribution towards hardware that will provide NE students with more state-of-the-art equipment and opportunities to develop their knowledge of the nanoscale world.

    WEEF contributed $37,828 towards the purchase of the following equipment for the Nanotechnology Engineering undergraduate student labs:
