University of Waterloo

In 1957, innovation and entrepreneurship brought University of Waterloo into being, as a group of business leaders imagined a new university built to tackle some of the world’s most daunting challenges.

It was the age of the Cold War and the space race, when a single computer filled a room. Discoveries in science, medicine and engineering were coming fast and furious. Industry leaders in Kitchener-Waterloo knew moving forward meant more than just training people in the technology of the day.

Waterloo was built to teach people to think in new ways. That meant reaching out across disciplines and faculties, sharing resources, and sparking new directions in research. It meant working hand-in-hand with industry, letting people own their intellectual property and the success that came from commercialization.

Constructed on a foundation of science, engineering and math, Waterloo has also become a leader in environmental education, architecture, the arts, psychology and human health.

A chemical engineering building was the first to rise in 1958, followed by a physics and mathematics building a year later. Waterloo’s first arts building opened in 1962, the same year the young university graduated its first class of engineers.  In 1967, Waterloo became home to the country’s only English-language school of optometry.

Mathematics professor Wes Graham.

In the early 1960s, mathematics professor Wes Graham made Waterloo among the first universities in the world to give undergraduates access to state-of-the-art computers that at the time filled a room. That spirit of risk-taking and innovation caught fire with students and researchers alike, helping to define this region’s enduring global identity as a technology powerhouse.

 

After Hagey’s retirement in 1969, President Burt Matthews continued to take Waterloo in new directions, adding the world’s first department of kinesiology, and programs in emerging areas including earth sciences, clinical psychology and accounting.
