Welcome to the new SWIGS website!  SWIGS is the Students of the Water Institute – Graduate Section.   

We are a graduate student organization located at the University of Waterloo and are the graduate student arm of the Water Institute.

We are an interdisciplinary team of graduate students at the University of Waterloo, who all share a common interest in water and water related research.

We have just launched our new website and will be adding a lot of new material and content over the next few weeks, so check in regularly.  We will even be hosting some contests that could win you amazing SWIGS swag.

If you would like to find out more please come by our upcoming SWIGS BBQ, on October 23rd, 1-2pm in the Rock Garden at the University of Waterloo.

As we launch this new website and our new blog we’d like to send a BIG THANK YOU to Collin at the University of Waterloo MadLabs, for all of his help!  We hope that this website, and our blog will help graduate students interested in water to find us, to find each other, and to find many opportunities to support their research and scholarship goals, here and abroad.
