Brock Solutions has partnered with the University of Waterloo Engineering school to bring real-world engineering problems to the classroom.

UW has an initiative called the Ideas Clinic, where students will have the opportunity to design and build solutions to solve industrial problems on physical equipment. Brock has worked closely with the UW faculty to define real-world industry problems in which the students will work in small teams to solve.

The team has successfully completed the Proof of Concept phase of the endeavor leveraging the skills of two groups of UW co-op students, where Brock served as subject matter experts and advisers. The systems are going through refinement this semester and will be rolled out to all second-year students in the summer.

About the University of Waterloo / IDEAS Clinic

The University of Waterloo is ranked Canada’s most innovative university with over 41,000 students. The Engineering Ideas Clinic was created to provide a learning environment where students work on industrial-based problems and projects. Waterloo and the Ideas Clinic have been exploring methods of in-class exposure to real-world problems for the past five years.
