Industrial engineering students offer optimization strategies to local companies

A local seatbelt manufacturer will save nearly $10,000 a year thanks to a warehouse optimization strategy produced by industrial engineering students at the University of Windsor.

Ahmed Khalid, one of several students who worked with TRQSS as part of a capstone project, said his team proposed using ultrasonic sensors to help the Windsor auto supplier track products in its warehouse.

Engineering students place second in provincial design competition

A team of fourth-year environmental engineering students earned second place in a provincial competition for designing an innovative stormwater management system accentuated with green spaces.

After submitting a 120-page report, Christina Ure, Shannon Deehan, James Park and Lina Florian had 15 minutes to present their design to a panel of judges April 2 at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa. This year’s Water Environment Association of Ontario’s Student Design Competition challenged eight university teams to design a storm water management system for Exhibition Place, a mixed-use district located by the shoreline of Lake Ontario in Toronto.

Engineering students promote diversity and inclusion

At UWindsor Engineering, we believe that one of the most important ingredients for creative thinking is diversity. We are committed to fostering a respectful, fair, and inclusive learning and working environment for all of our students, faculty and staff. From all of us at the Faculty of Engineering, we would like to say #YouBelong.

Women account for an average of 19 per cent of engineering students in Canada, a participation rate essentially unchanged since 2013, says Eleane Paguaga Amador, president of the Women in Engineering Club and a third-year industrial engineering major.

Technology pioneered at UWindsor aims to assist visually impaired

A UWindsor engineering professor and student have developed a personalized navigation system that has the potential to assist the visually impaired and those in low-visibility environments.

Unlike most navigation systems, which rely on a GPS satellite signal, Dr. Jalal Ahamed and Joshua Jaekel’s wearable smart device uses motion and acoustic wave sensors to detect nearby objects — the same way bats use sound waves to navigate.

Engineering students win provincial competition, advance to nationals

A miniature autonomous vehicle four UWindsor students built in less than six hours has placed first in a provincial engineering design competition.

Third-year engineering students Peter Doris (general mechanical), Lukasz Pach (civil), Tristin Gumiela (automotive) and Ben Levine (industrial) won the senior design category at the Ontario Engineering Competition held Jan. 27-29, 2017 in Ottawa for creating a miniature autonomous snow plow that cleared a road, stayed in its lane and avoided parked cars.

Mechanical engineering students receive international research award

Mechanical engineering students at the University of Windsor have been recognized on an international stage for their research in designing a 3D printable hand brace that can assist people with connective tissue disorders.

Master’s student Andre Khayat and doctoral candidate Hamed Kalami received the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) Young Researcher Award after Khayat presented to an audience of industry leaders and academic researchers at the 12th IFAC Workshop on Intelligent Manufacturing Systems held Dec. 5-7, 2016 in Austin, Texas.

Industrial engineering students lauded by IISE

A UWindsor student chapter of industrial engineers has been recognized for its leadership and engagement in local and national industrial engineering initiatives.

The Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE), the world's largest industrial engineering professional society, presented the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) Windsor Student Chapter with a bronze award for its progress and overall achievements in 2015-2016.

Environmental engineering at UWindsor provides students with boundless opportunities

Christina Ure is completing her Master of Applied Science in Environmental Engineering.
Christina Ure is completing her Master of Applied Science in Environmental Engineering.With a foundation in environmental engineering, Christina Ure knows the future is hers to build.

That’s because her degree from the University of Windsor makes her adept in the valuable art of solving problems.

“As an environmental engineer, we do a lot of problem-solving work for some of the world’s biggest issues,” Ure said. “That gives us a really good base for other fields – whether that’s business, law or medicine.”
