MME professors secure $14.5 million in funding for innovative research projects

Congratulations to Dr. Kaan Erkorkmaz and Dr. Hamid Jahed, both professors in the Department of Mechatronics and Engineering, for receiving a boost from the Canada Foundation for Innovation.

Erkorkmaz's research focuses on the digital transformation of manufacturing and was awarded $6.4 million, and Jahed's research, which explores cold spray technology, has received an investment of $8.1 million. This means that the newest funding total for these two mechanical and mechatronics research projects is $14.5 million.

As of now, both professors are actively seeking applications from graduate students who are interested in their cutting-edge research. If you're intrigued by their work, we encourage you to explore the application process here

The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) is a non-profit corporation that invests in research infrastructure at Canadian universities, colleges, research hospitals and non-profit research institutions.
