Volunteers needed for "Human Performance and Cognitive Workload in Haptic, Audio and Visual Environments" study

I am a graduate student from Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Waterloo. I am contacting you because I am conducting a study in my graduate research for my Master’s thesis on the topic of “Human Performance and Cognitive Workload in Haptic, Audio and Visual Environments” under the supervision of Professor David Wang of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo. I am currently seeking volunteers as participants in this study.

If you volunteer for this study, you will be asked to wear a noise cancelling headset, use a computer monitor and use a haptic device. A haptic device is used for bilateral touch communication between the user and a computer simulation. You will be asked to complete 3 virtual reality settings. Each setting will last 5 minutes. A one minute training session will precede each virtual reality setting. A break will be given after completing 3 tasks. After completing all virtual reality setting, you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire and asked general questions about your experience and you will be given a feedback and appreciation letter. This study will approximately last 30 minutes.  

I would like to assure you that the study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through a University of Waterloo Research Ethics Committee (ORE#20633). However, the final decision to participate is yours. If you are interested in participating, please contact me at with the best days and best times for you. 

Should you have any questions or concerns about the study, please do not hesitate to contact Professor David Wang at or 519-888-4567 x33968.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
1. Students who selected courses but something went wrong because of: enrollment capacity in a course **a time conflict **an academic enrolment block was applied after course selectiondropping or failing a course after course selection** Please re…

CS/Data Science/Digital Hardware option transfers NOW OPEN

The CS Undergraduate Advising Office has opened applications for CS transfers for Fall 2017. The online application is available at will be open from Tuesday, December 5 until Sunday, December 31, 2017, at 11.59 p.m.

We're accepting applications for:

Transfer from Math to CS - at a minimum, must have taken CS 136 or be taking it in Fall 2017.Transfer from CS to BCS (Data Science) - must have taken STAT 231 or be taking it in Fall 2017.Transfer from CS to CS/Digital HardwareAdding a Joint CS to an out-of-faculty planTransfer from outside of Math to CS (pending approval from Math)Answers to common questions about the transfer process can be found in the CS FAQs (particularly #2 and #151).
