Dean's Message - October 2012

We're pleased to announce sponsorship from A Thinking Ape Technologies  in support of upper-year computer science courses that incorporate mobile development. The new funding will enable the purchase of 2-3 generations of Android phones to be available for students to sign out from the William G. Davis Centre (DC) library.

27 students from our Faculty have distinguished themselves as “Academic all-Canadians” this year. These varsity athletes have also managed to maintain a very strong academic standing.

Congratulations to John Doucette and Bei Chen, honoured recently for excellence in graduate studies, and to Eduardo Martin-Martinez, awarded the prestigious Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship from Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Eduardo is working with Achim Kempf in quantum information science.

My thanks to Michele Mosca for appearing on TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paiken to explain the significance of the Mike and Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre (QNC) opening.
