Professor Pollard Wins Alumni Achievement Medal

Congratulations to Professor Emeritus Andrew Pollard who received the Alumni Achievement Medal from the University of Waterloo. The Alumni Achievement Medal is the highest honour that the Faculty of Engineering bestows on its graduates, and alumni receive it in recognition of their professional achievements, community service or academic excellence.

Professor Pollard was awarded the medal in recognition of his world-renowned research in fluid mechanics, for establishing numerous academic-industrial institutions, and for his ongoing mentorship and dedicated support of his students. “I am honoured and humbled by this recognition," he said. "It is a testament to my teachers then, and also to the students I have had the privelege to teach. I hope they have similarly benefited.” Click here for a link to the full announcement.
