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.
The event was a forum to connect undergraduates, graduates, and faculty members from the Faculties of Science and Engineering which included students not just from the NE programs but from other programs across campus. The event lived up to expectations which was to offer the perfect opportunity to get a glimpse of the exciting and inspiring future of the field across a variety of disciplines that are impacted because of nanotechnology.
The WUNC organizing team would like to thank the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN), the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering who all graciously supported this initiative. Their goal for the coming years is to have a larger audience and reach out to more companies and academics who express an interest in nanotechnology.
