The 2019 School of Engineering Executive Associate Dean Awards were handed out at a year-end event yesterday to recognize excellence within the School.
Awards ranged from Administrative and Technical Service Awards to Faculty Research and Teaching Awards.
“We are very lucky to have such a diverse, hard-working and passionate group at the School of Engineering,” explains Executive Associate Dean Rehan Sadiq. “The sustained growth and success of the School is directly a result of the exceptional work done everyday by our faculty and staff.”
Exceptional Service Awards were presented to Kim Nordstrom in the technical category, Samantha Luckow in the administrative category (M&P & BCGEU) and Ayman Elnaggar and Ray Taheri in the faculty category. Yang Cao and Dwayne Tannant both received honorary mentions in the faculty category as well.
Kenneth Chau and Sabine Weyand received the Executive Associate Dean’s Award for Teaching. Jonathan Holzman, who earlier this year received a Killam Teaching Prize, received an honorary mention.
Research Awards were presented to Zheng Liu and Dimitry Sediako.
In the Emerging Faculty Award, Sabine Weyand was recognized for Educational Leadership.
One faculty member and one staff member will be recognized later this summer with Faculty of Applied Science Dean’s Service Awards. Those individuals will be announced shortly.
“We are proud of all of our faculty and staff,” says Sadiq, “they are the backbone of the School and their dedication continues to propel us towards continued success.”
