Congratulations to the Department of Chemical Engineering’s Professor Hamed Shahsavan for his recent honour by the National Academy of Sciences in America. He was the lead author of a paper chosen as a finalist for a Cozzarelli Prize, which recognizes the top work published by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) in 2020.

Today the Faculty of Engineering has shared detailed and program specific class format plans for September 2021 with our incoming and current students.

Each department has posted details in a LEARN course for current undergraduate engineering students and in a TEAMS channel for current architecture students. These details are based on the information we shared with the Registrar’s Office, which is responsible for University-wide schedules and classroom space.

Professor Rajinder (Raj) Pal of the Department of Chemical Engineering is a world-renowned researcher and an award-winning instructor with a reputation for helping students understand some of the discipline’s most complex and abstract concepts relating to transport phenomena and thermodynamics.

Zhongwei Chen, Canada Research Chair in Advanced Materials for Clean Energy and Chemical Engineering Professor and Linda Nazar, Canada Research Chair in Solid State Energy Materials and University Professor, received more than $2 million in infrastructure funding from the federal government’s Canada Foundation for Innovation for the proposed Ontario Centre for Battery and Electrochemical Research.

Chemical Engineering Professor Tizazu Mekonnen has been named Inaugural Director of the Indigenous and Black Engineering and Technology (IBET) PhD Project. This new partnership, which includes the University of Waterloo and five other Ontario universities, aims to diversify academia and Canadian technology industries by increasing the number of Indigenous and Black Canadians pursuing engineering and technology degrees at universities across Ontario.

The Department of Chemical Engineering’s Aiping Yu has been awarded a prestigious 2020 E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship.

Each year, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) recognizes six highly promising early-stage researchers in the natural sciences and engineering with an E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship, in recognition of their efforts and to enhance their research capacity so that they can become leaders in their field and inspire others.

Professor Emeritus Ken O’Driscoll passed away on August 4, 2020, at the age of 89.

O’Driscoll was an internationally respected polymer science researcher, a talented teacher, and a kind and inspirational mentor who worked in the Department of Chemical Engineering between 1970 and 1992. His research in polymerization kinetics and polymer synthesis and characterization influenced many products we know and still use today, including hydrophilic contact lenses (also known as ‘soft contact lenses’), which he developed in 1971.
