Creating sustainable solutions to infrastructure challenges

As our cities age, so too do their infrastructures. From crumbling bridges, outdated fire hydrants to aging municipal water pipes, much of our country's infrastructure is in need of substantial maintenance or replacement. 

Waterloo Engineering’s smart infrastructure experts are shaping innovative cost-effective solutions to meet Canada's infrastructure challenges.

Through the use of sensors and smart data acquisition technology, our interdisciplinary researchers are coming up with innovative ways to assess and protect infrastructure and reduce the risk of failures caused by natural and man-made hazards.
