Words from the awarding committee: "[The program] had over 60 nominations from students across the campus and your nominations stood out among all the members of the selections committee! Seems to us that you are not only doing some great work within the School of Engineering and through the Mechanical Engineering Student Association, but you are also providing a world-class mentoring environment for many of your students." This award epitomizes the value of professionals’ (faculty, staff & supervisors) investment in mentoring students.
