Engineers Canada has recognized a U of T Engineering professor and two alumni with Engineers Canada Awards. The national awards celebrate engineers who have made distinguished contributions to Canada. Professor Amy Bilton (MIE) received the Young Engineer Achievement Award, recognizing an engineer under 36 years of age for outstanding contributions. Alumnus Ted Maulucci (MechE 8T9) garnered the Meritorious Service Award for Community Service, presented to an engineer who makes exemplary volunteer contributions to the community. Alumnus Larry Seeley (ChemE 6T6, MASc 6T8, PhD 7T2) received the Gold Medal Award, the organization’s highest honour, recognizing exceptional individual achievement and distinction in engineering.

“These three extraordinary engineers demonstrate the tremendous contributions that U of T Engineering faculty and alumni are making at all stages of their careers, as well as the impact and breadth of those contributions” said Dean Cristina Amon. “On behalf of the Faculty, I congratulate them on this richly-deserved recognition.”
