Prof celebrated as top grad student supervisor

Tuesday, March 19, 2024

Dr. Peter Huck has been honoured for his commitment to graduate students’ success with an Award of Excellence in Graduate Supervision.  

Huck, a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the NSERC Chair in Water Treatment, has graduated close to 100 PhD and master’s students and supervised more than 15 postdoctoral scholars. 

The award winners are nominated by current or former grad students who have received guidance or informal mentoring from the instructor they are putting forward.  

Huck was praised by students and colleagues for his mentorship and commitment to creating lasting connections with the next generation of engineers.  

As one former graduate student put it, “[Dr. Huck] is not merely an academic mentor but a lifelong friend who builds honest and genuine relationships with each of his students.”    

Huck is currently considering applications from graduate students.  

Go to Waterloo recognizes outstanding supervisors of graduate students for the full story.
