Sanjeev Bedi, a professor of mechanical and mechatronics (MME) engineering, who has a deep belief in the power of experiential education, is the 2022 winner of a Medal of Distinction in Engineering Education awarded at a gala in Toronto this week by Engineers Canada.

Being the founding director of the IDEASs clinic at Waterloo and holder of the NSERC Chair in Immersive Design, he is one of six engineers and engineering students recognized for excellence and work that will have a lasting impact on Canada and the rest of the world.

One of his proudest achievements was motivating a team of students to build a computer-controlled machine to help low-income young people in India by producing table legs for sale to support their families.

His story has been included in Waterloo News, leading more and more students to success.
