The Governor General Gold Medal, one of the highest honours in academia and research in Canada, is awarded to Dr. Tejinder Singh, who graduated in 2020 from the Faculty of Engineering, has received the medal for highest standing in a doctoral program. It is the most prestigious award a graduate can attain in a Canadian university. The university nominates only one PhD graduate with highest academic standing from all fields of study. This medal celebrates the impactful research and scholarly excellence.

Electrical and computer engineering alumnus, Dr. Tejinder Singh, has won the Young Engineer Prize for his work on "Reconfigurable PCM GeTe-Based Latching 6-Bit Digital Switched Capacitor Bank" presented at the 2020 European Microwave Integrated Circuits Conference (EuMIC). 

ECE’s Huayong (Johnny) Jia, PhD student under the supervision of Professor Raafat Mansour, was awarded the 3rd place Best Student Paper prize in the Student Paper Contest at the 2020 Applied Superconductivity Conference (ASC) [Virtual] for his research on “Wide-band Triplexer Realized in Niobium-Based Multilayer Substrate.”

Raafat R. Mansour, Ph.D., P.Eng., F.I.E.E.E., F.E.I.C., FCAE, was honoured at the 2014 Ontario Professional Engineers Awards with the Engineering Medal for Research and Development. 

The Engineering Medal honours those association members who have contributed substantially to advancing the engineering profession, and recognizes excellence in the practice of engineering.

Dr. Tejinder Singh, former PhD student and currently a Research Associate under the supervision of Professor Raafat Mansour, was awarded Best Paper award with Honorable Mention among Top 10 papers at the prestigious 2021 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Atlanta, GA for his research on “Scalable Non-Volatile Chalcogenide Phase Change GeTe-Based Monolithically Integrated mmWave Crossbar Switch Matrix.”

Navjot Khaira and Armin Smajevic of CIRFEreceived Engineering Excellence Fellowships. These fellowships are awarded to the top candidates in Engineering fields. 

Navjot is currently holding an Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS), a competitive provicial graduate scholarship. Navjot and Armin also received President's Graduate Scholarship for the duration of their fellowships.

Congratulations Navjot and Armin!

Tejinder Singh was awarded CMC’s Brian L Barge Microsystems Integration Award for “Miniaturized mmWave Chalcogenide PCM GeTe-Based Switch Matrices for Wireless and Satellite Communications Systems.” Judges praised his novel microwave switch networks, offering applications in telecommunications and consumer electronics, for its “low power, cost-effective transceiver using a modular approach, incremental solution at 67 GHz.” His presentation demonstrated contribution to every aspect of his project, including simulation, emulation,

ECE’s Tejinder Singh, PhD student under the supervision of Professor Raafat Mansour, was awarded the 1st place Best Paper award in the Student Paper Competition (SPC) at the prestigious 2019 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Boston, MA for his research on “Monolithically PCM Based Miniaturized T-type RF Switch for Millimeter Wave Redundancy Switch Matrix Applications.”

ECE’s Gowrish Basavarajappa, PhD student of Professor Raafat Mansour was awarded Best Paper Award in Advanced Practice Paper Competition (APPC) held at the most prestigious 2019 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS) at Boston, MA, USA for his research work on “A Tunable Coaxial Filter with Minimum Variations in Absolute Bandwidth and Q Using a Single Tuning Element.”
