Opportunity to provide input to NSERC

Recently, a joint Liaison Committee between the National Council of Deans of Engineering and Applied Science (NCDEAS) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) has been created. Dr. Ishwar Puri, Dean of Engineering at McMaster University and the Chair of the CSME President’s Advisory Committee, is the inaugural Chair of this joint Liaison Committee. It will be an excellent opportunity for all of us to provide constructive feedback to this committee in terms of how we want to shape the various funding mechanisms for Mechanical Engineering pertinent to NSERC programs.

Enclosed, please find the complete list of the committee membership. I plan to send a consolidated feedback to the committee on behalf of our membership. Please provide your inputs by emailing to skmitra@uwaterloo.ca by Nov. 5, 2017.

Cordially,

Sushanta Mitra

CSME President
