UWSpace is the University of Waterloo's institutional repository for the research and scholarship produced by its faculty, students, and staff. A service of the Library, UWSpace provides researchers with a free, secure, and long-term home for the presentation, dissemination, and preservation of their research and scholarship. By utilizing UWSpace researchers ensure their work achieves compliance with the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications.

Looking for Waterloo theses and dissertations? UWSpace contains all theses and dissertations published from October 2006 on, and a subset from 1996 through 2006, when electronic submission was optional. Older theses can be accessed by searching the library catalogue by title or author last name.

Making a deposit has never been easier. Complete the Library's short copyright review and deposit service form and we’ll determine the copyright status of your publications, identify the versions that are eligible for deposit, and make the deposits on your behalf.

  • Fair and Efficient Resource Scheduling in Heterogeneous Multi-Agent Systems 

    Omidi, Mohammadhadi (University of Waterloo, 2024-02-22)
    The performance of machine-learning applications heavily relies on the choice of the underlying hardware architecture, encompassing factors such as computational power, scalability, memory, and storage capabilities. These ...
  • Enzymatic degradation of PET plastic 

    Griffiths, Erin; Slowinski, Stephanie; Honek, John; Van Cappellen, Philippe; Rezanezhad, Fereidoun (University of Waterloo, 2024-02-02)
    Previous work has shown that the degradation of plastics such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET) using commercial grade enzymes is possible and highly effective in lab settings. However, the environmental factors controlling ...
  • A study of common bug fix patterns in Rust 

    Robati Shirzad, Mohammad; Lam, Patrick (Springer, 2024-02-12)
    Rust is a relatively new programming language which allows programmers to write programs that have low-level control over resources while still ensuring high-level safety guarantees (for programs written in safe Rust). ...
  • Vestibulocollic and Cervicocollic Muscle Reflexes in a Finite Element Neck Model During Multidirectional Impacts 

    Correia, Matheus; McLachlin, Stewart; Cronin, Duane (Springer, 2021-05-03)
    Active neck musculature plays an important role in the response of the head and neck during impact and can affect the risk of injury. Finite element Human Body Models (HBM) have been proposed with open and closed-loop ...
  • Optimization of muscle activation schemes in a finite element neck model simulating volunteer frontal impact scenarios 

    Correia, Matheus; McLachlin, Stewart; Cronin, Duane (Elsevier, 2020-03-07)
