"I chose engineering because I wanted to make a change in the world. The foundation of knowledge and engineering mindset I gained during my time at the University of Windsor has definitely done that for me. Be it my bioremediation research work in Northern Delhi, opportunities within the campus entrepreneurial community to develop my own business or simply participating in intramural sports leagues, there has been no shortage of opportunities for development and professional growth in the University of Windsor campus."
Dylan Verburg BASc (Honours) in Environmental Engineering
