Congratulations to Han Liu, Darron Phann, Daniel Stranart and Luke Wiersma, whose Nanotechnology Engineering Capstone Design team won first place in the Innovative Design category of the Ontario Engineering Competition (OEC) at the University of Guelph.
In addition to their exciting concept – a nanomaterial that detects the source of meat decay – Nanotechnology Engineering students Nina Jeorje, James Oswald, Heemal Parimoo and Connor Rupnow have a keen – and award-winning – understanding of the business concepts required to commercialize their technology.
Congratulation to Nanotechnology Engineering alumni Amr Abdelgawad (BASc 2016, Nanotechnology Engineering, MBET 2017) Youssef Helwa (BASc 2015, Nanotechnology Engineering, MASc 2017, electrical engineering), co-founders of NERv Technologies, and their colleagues, including Waterloo Engineering alumnus Abdallah El-Falou (MASc 2017, electrical engineering), for their latest win: first place in the Entrepreneurship World Cup (EWC).
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
