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.
