The University of Waterloo will deliver a Spring Academic Term that will be conducted online.
“We have made the decision to continue with an alternative delivery system for Spring Term, meaning that regrettably we are not going to deliver in-person course activity," said Feridun Hamdullahpur, president and vice-chancellor of Waterloo. “While there is nothing like learning in person, this allows us to make sure that we can continue to deliver a great academic experience for our students during this extraordinary time.
A new system combining artificial intelligence (AI) with human knowledge promises faster and more accurate cancer diagnosis.
The powerful technology, developed by a team led by engineering researchers at the University of Waterloo, uses digital images of tissue samples to match new cases of suspected cancer with previously diagnosed cases in a database.
The University of Waterloo has developed a tool to help the capital markets incorporate physical climate change and extreme weather risk into investment decisions.
Researchers at Waterloo's Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation developed a climate risk framework which will help institutional managers to guide investments, securities commissions to assess disclosure, and credit rating agencies to measure risk by incorporating the impacts of climate change into business analysis.
Researchers have utilized 3D printing and nanotechnology to create a durable, flexible sensor for wearable devices to monitor everything from vital signs to athletic performance.
The new technology, developed by engineers at the University of Waterloo, combines silicone rubber with ultra-thin layers of graphene in a material ideal for making wristbands or insoles in running shoes.
When that rubber material bends or moves, electrical signals are created by the highly conductive, nanoscale graphene embedded within its engineered honeycomb structure.
It is with deep sadness that the University of Waterloo community learned of the loss of one of its students, Ambar Roy, a first-year student in the Faculty of Environment.
Ambar went missing in the Spring of 2019 near Iqaluit.
The University has reached out to Ambar’s family to offer its condolences and support and stands ready to give them any assistance we can provide. A funeral service for Ambar will be held in Toronto on March 7.
