Welcome to Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo
Established over 40 years ago, the Department of Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo was the first-of-its-kind in Canada, and still is, hosting the most flexible programs and interdisciplinary areas of research. Systems design covers technical, environmental, socioeconomic and political aspects of the engineering process using systems design methodology.
Our community is home to more than 700 students, 35+ dedicated faculty and supportive staff, with thousands of alumni worldwide – including some of the most successful entrepreneurs to graduate from Waterloo.

A novel method developed by graduate students from Kimia Lab, Waterloo Engineering, Mohammed Adnan (1st-year MASc.), and Shivam Kalra (2nd year Ph.D.) has the potential to have a major impact in histopathological image analysis and cancer diagnostics. Their technique uses artificial intelligence (AI) to render digital representations of extremely high-resolution biopsy images.
