As a true innovator in the field, he is the founding director of the NSERC Holistic Innovation in AM Network, a pan-Canadian initiative that connects seven universities and over 24 private companies. He has also filed 18 patents, has transferred or disclosed over 35 technologies and recipes to the industry, and is well-published with a textbook and over 175 scholarly articles. His continued innovation and passion for the industry have led to three start-ups being founded. He also leads the University of Waterloo’s Multi-Scale Additive Manufacturing (MSAM) Lab in downtown Kitchener, where students can engage with cutting-edge 3D printing technologies and boost innovation to address global supply chain challenges. 

The Canadian Academy of Engineering works in cooperation with senior academies in Canada and internationally. The CAE is a founding member of the Council of Canadian Academies (CCA) and a member of the International Council of Academies of Engineering and Technological Sciences (CAETS), which includes 31 engineering academies around the world. Plus, the CAE is a member of the Partnership Group for Science and Engineering (PAGSE), an association of more than 20 Canadian organizations in Science and Engineering that educates federal leaders on the importance of Canadian research and innovation, nationally and internationally. 

The induction ceremony is scheduled in London, Ontario, for May 28, 2024. Congratulations, Ehsan!
