One Grid, One Community: Zihao's Story

Visualization of villagers using community areas outside for physical activity

Waterloo isn’t the only city nearby that’s bustling with UWaterloo academia.  Soon-to-be pharmacists populate the School of Pharmacy, while architecture students are settled half an hour away from our main campus, in the heart of downtown Cambridge. 

Behind the Scenes: Orientation

Happy End of Orientation Warriors!

We hope you had a spectacular week meeting new people in your faculty, navigating campus, and cramming in as much fun as you can before classes begin.  Everyone involved in it certainly enjoyed every aspect of bringing Orientation to life for you. 

Encouraging passion with STEM and the HeForShe IMPACT scholarship

With a passion and love for engineering, Anjali Joshi, a first-year Mechanical Engineering student, found it an easy choice to pursue a STEM degree at the University of Waterloo. Anjali is one of the six recipients of the 2016 HeForShe IMPACT scholarship, which is a part of the University of Waterloo’s IMPACT 10x10x10 initiative to advance gender equality.

Taking the wheel: One student’s path to Engineering at UWaterloo

​Picking a university program isn’t always easy, but when you follow what you love it makes choosing that much easier. For students like Matthew Rose, a first year in Mechatronics Engineering  and a graduate of Bluevale Collegiate Institute, his involvement in his high schools’ Electric Car Club was a chance to pursue his passion and get first-hand experience in his future career.

Every year, engineering students from across da face-off in the ultimate structural design challenge. This year’s competition, hosted by the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) annual conference in London, Ontario, invited Canadian universities to submit one capstone design project for consideration. Out of 39 talented design teams, University of Waterloo selected “Four Flags Amusement” to represent Warriors on the CSCE stage.

Nanotech gardening startup takes root

Most novel applications of nanotechnology tend to revolve around the fields of medicine or micro-robotics, leaving other fields largely unexplored. Recent Nanotech Engineering alumna Sonya Wach set out to change that by revolutionizing our approach to gardening.

Nanotech Engineering students show that size matters

Ready to face some of the best university teams from Romania, India, and the United States, UWaterloo’s own Nanotech Engineering students took the 2016 Mobile Microrobotics Challenge. After packing up their trusted microbot, the team made the journey to Sweden, where they competed in tests of autonomy, accuracy and assembly. 

A duel for the ages

If you think about athletics, fencing is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. Yet for Marc Lo this dueling pastime is the only sport that matters. This month, the Computer Engineering student is gearing up for a contest of weaponry, black masks and uncompromising technique.

Elven army? Almost, it’s the UWaterloo Archery club!

UWaterloo archers channeled their inner Lord of The Rings spirit, hitting the target at this year’s Inter-university Archery Tournament. At the end of March, the club travelled to the University of Toronto for the fifth annual Ontario-wide competition. Shooting 60 arrows each was no sweat for the UWaterloo teammates, and much like Robin Hood, the team aimed true, winning first place overall with 3,058 points.
