Our professors, instructors and librarians are passionate about their work, and dedicated to having an impact on their students in our fields of scholarly endeavour, in our contributions to our community, and in making a difference by solving real-world problems. As faculty, instructors, and professional librarians, we are committed to pushing the boundaries of inquiry, mobilizing knowledge, and promoting unique learning experiences for our students.
The pursuit of excellence in teaching and research are foundations of Carleton University and, without question, our 2014 achievement award recipients excel in their efforts. Researchers are discovering new areas of knowledge, professors are integrating experiential learning opportunities in the classroom and providing students with opportunities to engage with cutting-edge research and their local and global communities, contract instructors are encouraging critical thinking and inspiring creative inquiry.
Congratulations to the 2014 achievement award winners from the Faculty of Engineering and Design!
