Personal Reflections on the Life of George Soulis

I first met George when I interviewed for a position as assistant professor in Systems Design Engineering in early 1976. His questions and comments at my interview seminar were a large part of my decision to join the department—here was a man with warmth, insight, creativity, and breadth. I soon came to realize that both my personal and professional life were to be shaped by George. He was the founding chair of the department. He was largely responsible for bringing the discipline of design into the curriculum for engineering, not just at Waterloo, but across Canada.
