In 2010, the University of Waterloo was ranked Canada’s No. 1 comprehensive research university for the third year in a row in the annual “Canada Top 50 Research Universities” survey conducted by the national consulting firm Research Infosource.
The University of Waterloo celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2007, harking back to the first applied science classes offered starting July 1, 1957, by the temporary “Waterloo College Associate Faculties.” Gerald Hagey, president of the Lutheran-affiliated Waterloo College, had enlisted support from business leaders in Kitchener-Waterloo, a modest industrial city in midwestern Ontario, to create a program to train engineers and technicians who were desperately needed for Canada’s growing postwar economy.
