Vatistas named EIC Fellow


The Engineering Institute of Canada will honour George Vatistas, professor in Concordia's Department of Mechanical Engineering, for his excellence and professional service at its annual awards gala in Ottawa on February 25, 2012.

"What an unexpected gift for me to start the New Year to be named a fellow of the prestigious Engineering Institute of Canada," said an honoured Vatistas." "I had no idea that I had been nominated. It is a distinct honor to be among the illustrious roster of past fellows."

Since 1963, the Council of the Institute has elected annually to the grade of Fellow a number of engineers in recognition of their excellence in engineering and their services to the profession and to society.
