Breaking Barriers: Rethinking Armor Design for Female Soldiers

Not all heroes wear capes, but they do wear armour. Meet Dr. Michele Oliver, a trailblazer from the School of Engineering at the University of Guelph, who is working towards making armour more accommodating for the real-world superheroes - our soldiers. The twist? Her study focuses on determining whether armour needs to be tailored for female soldiers, a long-ignored demographic in military armour design.

Food Day Canada 2023 - What do Engineers have to do with Food?

When people think of food, they think of farmers, grocery stores and restaurants, they don’t think of engineers. To celebrate Food Day Canada, we asked Dr. Kevin M. Keener, the Barrett Family Foundation Chair in Sustainable Food Engineering, to provide some insight into the relationship between engineering and the foods we enjoy. In response, Dr. Keener, shared the spotlight with a few of his students working in the Sustainable Food Systems Innovation Lab.

University Chairs for Women in Engineering discuss challenges, opportunities

Queen’s Chair for Women in Engineering Heidi Ploeg and University of Guelph counterpart Jana Levison agree engineering climate and retention are forefront issues.

In a profession that prides itself on solving problems, gender equity remains perhaps the most elusive goal for the engineering industry.

That challenge is the reason International Women in Engineering Day is celebrated each year on June 23.
