Professor Federico Rosei, Director of the INRS Centre Énergie Matériaux Télécommunications, is the recipient of the 2017 Outstanding Engineer Award from IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Canada. The award recognizes outstanding Canadian engineers who have made important contributions to electrical and electronics engineering.
This is not the first time Dr. Rosei's remarkable contributions to engineering in Canada have been highlighted. His election as a fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada in 2013 and of the Canadian Academy of Engineering in 2015 attest to his status among Canada's engineering elite.
Dr. Rosei holds the UNESCO Chair in Materials and Technologies for Energy Conversion, Saving and Storage (MATECSS) and the newly established Canada Research Chair in Nanostructured Materials. His ever-growing national and international reputation is reflected in the numerous awards and honours he has received in recent years from around the world.
Dr. Rosei will receive a medal and plaque at the IEEE Canada awards ceremony, part of the Annual IEEE Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering next May 1, 2017, in Windsor, Ontario. The theme of the conference is "Two Great Nations Innovate the Technology."
Our heartfelt congratulations to Professor Rosei on this new honour!
