Mike Havey, Nihar Biswas, Richard PeddieEngineering professor Nihar Biswas (centre) receives congratulations from athletic director Mike Havey and alumnus Richard Peddie on an award recognizing his support of Lancer student-athletes.

Engineering professor recognized for his work outside of the classroom

Nihar Biswas’s dedication to the University of Windsor extends well beyond the classroom walls. When Dr. Biswas isn’t lecturing on water quality and waste management, the civil engineering professor is helping attract top student athletes to UWindsor.

“While many of our students and staff may recognize Nihar as a frequent visitor to the St. Denis Centre and a regular exerciser on our track, what many probably don’t know is all the work he is doing behind the scenes to help our Lancer teams,” athletic director Mike Havey said April 6 at the Lancer Evening of Excellence.

Engineering students posit climate change responses

UWindsor engineering students are bracing for a wetter future created by climate change by examining and improving the design of local water systems.

Speaker to address the need for smart water systems

Large amounts of electrical energy are currently required to push Ontario’s water through treatment plants and a complex system of aging, corroded and leaky transmission and distribution pipes. In the next 10 years alone, updating Ontario’s water infrastructure will cost $30-40 billion.
