Tuesday, December 1, 2020

It is with great sadness that we share the news that Professor Igor Ivkovicpassed away on Friday, November 27, 2020. 

Igor was a Lecturer and the Associate Chair Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Systems Design Engineering. He completed his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Computer Science and PhD degree in Software Systems Engineering, all at Waterloo. He was always a passionate supporter of the University.

Greatly admired by students and colleagues for his enthusiasm and passion for teaching, and his commitment to the university. Igor proudly and happily participated in many aspects of the success of Waterloo including regularly participating in recruitment events as he worked directly to encourage the next generation of Waterloo Engineers, and in his content development for Engineering Design Dayz with our current undergraduate students. His contributions and dedication to our Faculty are unparalleled.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Igor’s wife Shabnam who graciously shared Igor with us.

More details on how we will honour Profossor Igor Ivkovic's life and his service to the Faculty of Engineering and the University of Waterloo will be shared as they are made available.
