Faculty and students join international summer exchange at China’s Peking University
MIE graduate student named top 30 under 30 by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers
The federal grant program encourages top researchers to use scientific or technical, social and business innovation to address some of the most pressing global health challenges. This year’s recipients also include Lian Leng (MIE MASc 1T0, PhD 1T5) and Professor Axel Guenther (MIE, IBBME), who created a 3D skin printer to provide burn victims with skin grafts.
It’s an innovative design that has netted its designers, then-fourth-year IBBME engineering students this year’s John W. Senders Award for Imaginative Design. From U of T Engineering, the award is “for the imaginative and successful application of the principles of human factors to the design of a medical device." Professor Senders is an emeritus faculty member of MIE.
Mechanics of Machines by Professor Emeritus William L. Cleghorn and Nikolai Dechev was recently published in its Second Edition. The book ideal for courses in kinematics and dynamics of machines. It covers the basic concepts of gears, gear trains, the mechanics of rigid bodies, and graphical and analytical kinematic analyses of planar mechanisms.
Prof Jean Zu received NSERC Engage funding for the "Development of testing and analysis methodologies to characterize the performance of an innovative hydraulic impact hammer".
Congratulations to Olga Arevalo-Quintero (supervisor: Professor Olivera Kesler), the 2014-15 recipient of the Mercedes-Benz Canada Graduate Fellowship for Fuel Cell Research. This award is intended to fund research and training of world-class researchers and engineers in the field of fuel cell research.
