Grantek Sponsors Best Design at Annual Waterloo Design Symposium

Community Service at Grantek

Each year the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Waterloo hosts a student design symposium. The Capstone design provides Waterloo Engineering students a unique opportunity to conceptualize and design a project related to their chosen discipline, all while showcasing their talents.

The Design Symposium reinforces the concepts of team work, project management, and research and development. These are all concepts Grantek upholds and emphasizes amongst its employees. Subsequently Grantek was proud to support this great event by sponsoring the prize for ‘Best Design’ again this year!

Grantek’s guest judges Bryon Hayes and Christian Muggeridge awarded this year’s Grantek Design Award to Airsense. As a group Airsense created an affordable and effective method for collecting air quality data in order for the smart cities of the future to be able to better predict, and take preventative measure on potential incidents. They developed a platform that can be easily integrated into urban infrastructure, providing real-time air quality data openly, and to everyone.
