John Brash, Director of the newly established McMaster School of Biomedical Engineering, will be presented with the R.S. Jane Memorial Award. This award is presented to an individual who has made new significant contributions to chemical engineering or industrial chemistry in Canada. It is the premier award of The Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering.

Brash has worked in biomaterials and biocompatibility research for some 35 years, with emphasis on materials for use in blood contact, which are required for devices such as vascular grafts, coronary stents and heart valves. He has been a faculty member in the Department of Chemical Engineering at McMaster since 1972.

John MacGregor

John MacGregor will receive the Award in Industrial Practice. This award recognizes a distinguished contribution in the application of chemical engineering or industrial chemistry to the industrial sphere. MacGregor joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at McMaster University in 1972, after working in industry for several years as a process specialist with Monsanto Company in Texas. He is a Distinguished University Professor and Dofasco Chair in Process Automation and Information Technology.John MacGregor He is also cofounder of the McMaster Advanced Control Consortium that is sponsored by many international companies.

Suzanne Kresta, a PhD alumna of the Department of Chemistry at McMaster University, and currently a professor at the University of Alberta, will receive the Syncrude Canada Innovation Award. This award is presented for a distinguished contribution in the field of chemical engineering while working in Canada. Kresta is co-editor of the award winning Handbook of Industrial Mixing and the author of a number of widely cited papers on turbulent mixing in stirred tanks.

ESL teaching in Canada

by ESLteacher

I'm not Canadian, but if you don't find vocational ed jobs easy to get up there, you may want to look into intensive programs for international students up there. Such programs (the good ones are part of universities or at least closely affiliated with them) must be experiencing a boom in Canada. It's too hard for students, including Asians, to get visas to the U.S. right now because of stupid new laws and red tape after 9/11. So lots of them are choosing to go to other countries instead, and I would assume Canada would be one of them.
