It is in recognition of his distinguished engineering contributions and outstanding achievements that he received this highest professional engineering honour.
Benoit Gosselin, a full professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, a member of the CERVO Research Centre and a world-renowned expert in energy-efficient microelectronics and biomedical technologies, joins his colleagues Paul Fortier and Denis Laurendeau, also professors in the Department and previously elected honorary members.
The recent recipient of $1M in funding for the development of a new technology to study the development of Alzheimer's disease is one of a small number of engineers who can aspire to this designation from the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) annually.
Only members who have made outstanding contributions and dedication to Canadian engineering can be considered for this designation. Following a highly competitive nomination and selection process, Professor Gosselin, also a researcher at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Rehabilitation and Social Integration (CIRRIS) and the CERVO Centre, was selected.
His contributions include the innovative new wireless microelectronic platforms he designed that have helped change the way we now study brain function and its associated diseases, as well as the 2018 NSERC Brockhouse Canada Prize for Interdisciplinary Research in Science and Engineering and the 2019 OIQ Engineering Innovation Award he won.
Elected members have distinguished themselves in various sectors including business, academia and government and are nominated and elected by their peers and current CAE members as Honorary Fellows of the Academy.
Congratulations to Professor Gosselin!
