Network Scientific Director awarded Killam Teaching Prize at the University of British Columbia

Professor Yusuf Altintas has been awarded a Killam Teaching Prize in recognition of his outstanding teaching. Not only does Professor Altintas consistently earn accolades from students for his classroom performance, he has also been very active in curriculum development. Shortly after he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UBC, Dr. Altintas developed the CAA (Computer-aided Automation) Option which evolved into the prize-winning EMEC (Electro-Mechanical Engineering Co-op) program, a combined B.A.Sc./M.Eng. program. More recently, at the time that “Doubling the Opportunity” was implemented, the EMEC program was expanded and broadened with the assistance of Drs. Croft, Rohling and Lu at UBC, and has become the M echatronics Option
