With connectivity becoming an increasingly important part of our everyday lives, researchers at the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Engineering are exploring ways to use artificial intelligence and simulations to create life-changing wearable technology and smarter assistive software.
On February 12, 2020, students from the Faculty and the university presented their innovative business ideas and plans to a panel of expert judges from the Ottawa community. Three teams brought home prizes that will help to kick start their start-up ideas.
Congratulations to Nora Wong, Olivia Roy and Benjamin Wilson for winning first place at the L'Oréal Industrial Challenge. The theme this year was sustainability, and our students proposed solutions for L'Oréal to reduce its water consumption. Our students stood out from the competing students representing seven Canadian universities!
