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.
Congratulations to VivaSpire, DropLab and Avro Life Science – and especially the Nanotechnology Engineering students who are key parts of these emerging companies – for their wins at the Fall 2016 Velocity Fund Finals.
VivaSpire, made up of four Nanotechnology Engineering (NE) students, Chris Hajduk, John Grousopoulos, Mostafa Saquib and Pablo Enrique, won a Velocity Fund $5K prize intended to help early-stage companies grow their venture. VivaSpire develops superior portable oxygen delivery systems for patients in need of oxygen therapy.
