Welcome to the Sedra Student Design Centre

The Sedra Student Design Centre consists of over 20 000 square feet of space dedicated to design teams and student projects. We have more than two dozen design teams, all of which are student-led, and many of which compete internationally. We are the largest facility of our type in North America.

  • 20 000 square feet of space across two floors exclusively for students, with a dedicated sanding bay, paint room, and garages for team projects.
  • Dedicated CAD workstations for teams to develop their designs.
  • Two meeting rooms for students' use, plus an open-concept work area for teams to collaborate on their projects.
  • Home to Waterloo's 3D Print Centre, with two professional-grade Fortus 3D print machines.
  • Adjacent to the Engineering Student Machine Shop, which provides students with training, advice, and resources on design projects.
  • Hosts Waterloo events like Capstone Design Symposiums and provides space for Engineering Science Quest summer camps.
