Sunscreen warning markers earn top grades at Women Entrepreneurs Bootcamp

Sunscreen warning markers earn top grades at Women Entrepreneurs Bootcamp.

Here is an interesting story about some of our Nanotechnology Engineering students, who used their creativity and expertise in materials science to develop a business idea for a compound that warns you when you need to re-apply sunscreen.  They won a $15,000 prize to help carry on building their start-up company.

There was another story a while ago about nanotechnology engineering graduates who were developing an improved de-icer compound for use in frost removal or control.  Just a couple of examples of what nanotechnology engineering students do in the area of entrepreneurship.

  1. Hi Professor Anderson,

    I have a question about courses taken online. The Waterloo Engineering Admission Office sent me an email saying that adjustment may be made to overall admission average if courses are take outside day school. Can you just give me an idea about how the “adjustment” is made? Is it like a 3% deduction or something else?

    Thank you very much Professor.
