Engineering researchers awarded provincial funding

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Four professors at Waterloo Engineering, including WIN Director Sushanta Mitra and WIN member Kevin Musselman, were recently awarded $570,000 in provincial funding to build their research teams and pay for research-related infrastructure.

Werner Dietl (electrical and computer engineering), Kevin Musselman (mechanical and mechatronics engineering) and Lan Wei (electrical and computer engineering) will each receive $140,000 over five years through the Early Researcher Awards program to help promising new researchers.

Sushanta Mitra (mechanical and mechatronics engineering) was awarded $150,000 through the Ontario Research Fund-Research Infrastructure program for equipment to characterize capillarity and wetting for under-liquid systems.

Campus-wide, 15 researchers at the University of Waterloo were awarded $2 million through the two programs, part of a larger investment by the provincial government meant to give Ontario a competitive edge.
