The professorships were created by a landmark bequest from the estate of alumnus Erwin Edward Hart (BASc 1940). The seven professors are all within the first 10 years of their careers and have demonstrated a high level of research excellence and exemplary graduate student mentorship.
“Our inaugural Hart Professors exemplify the richness and diversity of research and education across our Faculty,” says Cristina Amon, dean of the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering. “They are addressing society’s most relevant challenges, from sustainable energy to human health, while nurturing the next generation of global engineering leaders.”
