May 28, 2010 - In the News

Fraser Kent, a PhD student in Environmental Engineering, and Jason McCullough, a student in the Master of Applied Science in Environmental Engineering program, are featured in today's Globe and Mail as part of a special Engineers Canada supplement.

Both are highlighted in an article about engineering scholarship recipients who are making a difference.

Kent received an Engineers Canada-Manulife Financial Scholarship valued at $10,000. The scholarship is aimed at providing financial assistance to engineers returning to university for further study or research in an engineering field. Kent's research is focused on finding agricultural, urban and industrial uses for waste water. He is currently investigating methods for improving the efficiency of water-recovery technologies.

McCullough received the Engineers Canada-TD Insurance Leopold Nadeau Scholarship valued at $7,500. He will conduct workshops on local environmental and water resources applications in First Nations communities. The research will provide Canadian engineers with a deeper understanding of water treatment challenges faced by First Nations operators.
