Omar Ramahi - Electrical and Computer Engineering

Prof. Omar Ramahi from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, who holds the NSERC/RIM Industrial Research Associate Chair, has been named one of Waterloo’s four top graduate supervisors for 2010.  Prof. Ramahi is identified as an exceptional scholar who has co-authored more than 250 research publications and maintains a very active research program.  The letters of support that came from past and present students were consistent in their praise of his mentorship, his sociable and personable nature and his ability to encourage the very best from his students not only by journeying with them but through example.  His role as a mentor continues when the students have left his group, providing support, encouragement and even career counseling.
