The first ever Waterloo Undergraduate Nanotechnology Conference (WUNC) was held at the Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre on Saturday, November 7, 2015. The conference featured presentations and posters by researchers, graduate students, and industry members, at the cutting edge of nanotechnology. This conference was fully organized by undergraduate students from the Nanotechnology Engineering program who took the initiative and wanted to seize the opportunity to learn more about the scope of nanotechnology in academia as well as industry.
