Students in sleds

SWIGS is the graduate student group of the Water Institute dedicated to fostering the community of water researchers at the University of Waterloo. Any student who is, or has an interest, in graduate water research is welcome to our events!

The goals of SWIGS are to:

  • Provide venues of collaboration between graduate researchers  in all departments and faculties
  • Host events to promote interaction between students
  • Foster networks between students, faculty, industry/professionals
  • Provide a series of speakers, workshops, etc. that enriches the student experience

With over 400 members representing unique perspectives from all six University of Waterloo faculties, SWIGS helps connect graduate students who embrace and value an interdisciplinary approach to water research and learning.
