Dr. David Bacon was a leader - well ahead of his time. He is remembered by alumni as both a rigorous and a compassionate educator and mentor who had a knack for blending statistical theory and practice in the classroom. As a professor many of his students called his courses the most useful they've ever taken and during an eleven-year term as dean from 1980 to 1991, he emerged as an early champion of women in engineering. The David W. Bacon Distinguished Speaker Series will attract academics and industry leaders from around the world to share insights into the technical aspects of their work and its applications.
Dr. Andrew Daugulis has been granted the 2015 Ontario Professional Engineers Engineering Medal - Research and Development Award, in recognition of his contributions to research and development, particularly in the field of phase-partitioning bioreactors. Dr. Daugulis received very strong support from five senior researchers in academia and industry.
The Ontario Professional Engineers Awards (OPEA) program is presented jointly by Professional Engineers Ontario, and the Ontario Society for Professional Engineers. Dr. Daugulis will be receiving his medal at the OPEA Awards Gala in November of this year.
