McGill PhD student Jonathan Bouchard (supervised by Professor Jim Clark) was awarded an “Honorable Mention” for the best Student Paper Award for our paper “Quality Control of Stereoscopic 3-D Compositing Using Half-Occlusion Geometry” published in the Motion Imaging Journal, awarded by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) in October 2017. Congratulations Jonathan!
The IEEE Photonics Society Engineering Achievement Award is given to recognize an exceptional engineering contribution which has had a significant impact on the development of laser or electro-optic technology or the commercial application of technology within the past 10 years. It may be given to an individual or to a group for a single contribution of significant work in the field. No candidate shall have previously received a major IEEE award for the same work. Candidates need not be members of the IEEE or the Photonics Society. The Award consists of an honorarium of $2000 and a medal.
Congratulations to Mr. Srinivas Vanka, Ph.D. Student under the supervision of Professor Ishiang Shih (and former ECE Professor Zetian Mi) who was awarded the Best Presentation Award at Symposium NM7—Semiconductor Nanowires for Energy Applications for his presentation titled "An InGaN Nanowire/Si Tandem Photoanode for High‐Efficiency Photoelectrochemical Water Splitting".
McGill University is the world’s third-best university for the study of Anatomy & Physiology, behind only the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, according to the 2017 QS World University Rankings by Subject.
The seventh edition of QS Quacquarelli Symonds’s analysis of subject-specific university performance, released today, lists the world’s best universities for the study of 46 different subjects. Anatomy & Physiology is one of four new subject categories introduced in this year’s listing.

Some potentially good news for aging Baby Boomers: researchers believe that they have developed a hip replacement that will last longer and create fewer problems for the people who receive them than those currently in use. The secret? An implant that “tricks” the host bone into remaining alive by mimicking the varying porosity of real bones.
Interestingly, the key factor that distinguishes the new implant is that is LESS rather than more solid than those in current use, while still being just as strong.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at McGill University invites applications for two tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor. McGill is among the top research intensive academic institutions in Canada, attracting over one-half billion dollars in competitive research funding each year. It has been consistently ranked in the top 25 universities worldwide in a number of recent surveys. Successful candidates will play leading roles in maintaining McGill’s international reputation of excellence in research and teaching. We are particularly interested in the areas of d
Congratulations to Professor Fabrice Labeau, who has recently been honoured by the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society (VTS):
3D depth-sensing camera shown to measure walking difficulties
A commonly used device found in living rooms around the world could be a cheap and effective means of evaluating the walking difficulties of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients.
The Microsoft Kinect is a 3D depth-sensing camera used in interactive video activities such as tennis and dancing. It can be hooked up to an Xbox gaming console or a Windows computer.
The Gatineau native and McGill University student was named the first Canadian winner of the Infiniti Engineering Academy competition on Thursday. That earns him a yearlong paid internship in Europe, with his time split evenly between the Infiniti Research Centre in Enstone, England, and the Renault Formula One racing team, which has its headquarters in Cranfield, England.
McGill University of Montreal, Canada won the Zero Emissions, or electric, category of the challenge last weekend at Michigan Technological University's Keweenaw Research Center.
