Congratulations to IC3 members, David Clausi, Jonathan Li, and Chao Tan, who were elected as Fellows to the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE).

The CAE is the national institution through which individuals, who have made outstanding contributions to engineering in Canada, provide strategic advice on matters of critical importance to Canada and to Canadians. Fellows of the CAE are nominated and elected by their peers, in view of their distinguished achievements and career-long service and are committed to ensuring that Canada’s engineering expertise and experience are applied to the benefit of all Canadians. 

The newly elected fellows were three of seven University of Waterloo faculty members that were elected.
