The talk will cover the following topics:
Come and explore Systems Design Engineering's Capstone Design Symposium!
You are invited back to campus to the Systems Design Engineering Symposium-day lunch. This year is extra special: the department was officially formed in 1968, so it's their 50th Birthday this year!
Join us for a complimentary lunch (and maybe a bit of birthday cake), exclusively for systems design engineering alumni, where Dr. Ning Jiang, a recently hired professor in Systems Design and the Director of the Waterloo Engineering Bionics Lab, will speak on cutting-edge research in the area of human-machine interfaces. Indeed, such interfaces have a very likely possibility of affecting nearly all of us, embedded in every corner of our society: at work, at home, on the road, in classrooms, hospitals, and gymnasiums. Such human-machine interfaces can be already found in a vast array of different sectors including manufacturing, rehabilitation, fitness tracking, office ergonomics, entertainment, law enforcement, and defense, in the form of prostheses, orthoses, wearable fitness bracelets, sensorized garments, and exoskeletons.
Following lunch and the research overview of Professor Jiang, you will be invited to the System Design Capstone Design Symposium at the Davis Centre where you can spend the rest of the afternoon (or as much time as you'd like) connecting with current 4th year students who will display their design projects until 5pm.
Parking: Lot C and Lot Q are available for entry by coin or credit card at a rate of $5 per day.
