Monica Emelko elected to the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE)
Recognizing excellence in professional engineering
Monica Emelko, Waterloo Climate Institute member and professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is among two Waterloo Engineering faculty members that have been elected fellows by Canada’s most distinguished engineering society.
Dr. Monica Emelko and Dr. Carolyn Ren are among the newest cohort of 55 fellows to be elected to the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) by their peers. Fellows have been selected because of their "outstanding contributions to engineering and for serving as role models in their fields and communities,” said CAE’s president Dr. Soheil Asfarpour in a media release.
The Canadian Academy of Engineering is foremost national engineering institution through which Canada's most distinguished and experienced engineers provide strategic advice on matters of critical importance to the country.
An in-person induction ceremony honouring the 2023 elected fellows will take place June 20 in Victoria, British Columbia.
