ECE Professor Sherman Shen named University Professor
Wednesday, April 5, 2017
The University of Waterloo owes much of its international reputation and stature to the quality of its eminent professors. The designation "University Professor" is the way Waterloo recognizes exceptional scholarly achievement and international pre-eminence. Once appointed, a faculty member retains the designation until retirement.
Not counting retirees, it is anticipated there will be one University Professor for approximately every 60 full-time regular faculty members, with at most two appointments each year. Such appointments are reported to Senate and the Board of Governors, and are recognized at Convocation.
Congratulations on this extraordinary achievement Sherman!
