National Engineering Week!

It's National Engineering Week next week, with the Ontario page here.

As usual, there's a nice supplement in the Globe and Mail, although the 2008 edition isn't up yet. As usual, lots of good articles including ones on Environmental challenges, Alternative Energy, Engineering in the Life Sciences, Auto Innovation, Robot Games, a couple of Engineering Careers and Engineering in Space.

Now that York's Engineering Program has been accredited, we actually figure quite prominently in the supplement. There's a nice ad and Prof. Spiros Pagiatakis gets quoted in the article on Environmental Challenges.

Not only that, but there's a a good chunk of an article devoted to Space Engineering projects at York. Projects by Profs. James Whiteway and Ben Quine are featured -- and a rather fuzzy picture of Ben with his thermal vacuum chamber.
