Engineering students win world recognition

The University of Windsor’s student chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers has attracted international notice for its outstanding achievements.

The chapter will be recognized virtually in late fall by the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) at its world conference, receiving an award in the association’s international division for hosting the Best Student Chapter Meeting, which included a panel session with industry professionals from the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority, CanWEA, and Chall.Eng. Corporation.

Lindsay Miller-Branovacki, the chapter’s faculty advisor, says it is a highly motivated group of students made up of 14 members across engineering disciplines, all with an interest in energy engineering.

“I am very impressed with the initiative they have taken over the last year to launch this chapter, promote it to the UWindsor student body, and organize meetings with influential industry speakers,” she says.

Teams are evaluated on their activity, events, fundraising, and meeting topics and relevance to the energy industry.
