In 1890, Robert Alexander Ross (1865–1936) was awarded the first BASc/diploma in mechanical engineering from the School of Practical Science. Fast-forward to 2015, and we are excited to celebrate the 125th year of mechanical engineering at U of T.

Tangy the bingo-playing robot will make its debut as part of pilot study at a long-term care facility in Toronto in the coming weeks. Statistics Canada estimates people aged 65 and older will account for almost a quarter of the population by 2051. Prof. Goldie Nejat at the University of Toronto says health-care robots represent the biggest source of funding for her lab from government and industry.
In January 2015, Professor Yu Sun was elevated to Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) – the institute’s highest grade of membership. The distinction is reserved for members who have attained extraordinary accomplishments in an IEEE field. Less than 0.1 per cent of voting members are selected annually for the member-grade elevation. Prof. Sun’s IEEE Fellow was through the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS).
Professor Hani E. Naguib has been elected to Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers ASME. The Fellow Grade is the highest elected grade of membership within ASME, the attainment of which recognizes exceptional engineering achievements and contributions to the engineering profession. The Fellow grade is considered a distinction among ASME members.
