Dennis Mitchell (Civil Engineering)
"I am honoured and grateful to receive the Research Excellence Award from the Faculty of Engineering. The contributions from many graduate students over the years, and the collaboration with Research Associate, Dr. William Cook, have made this possible. I am also grateful to McGill University for providing a stimulating environment for innovative research."

Ahmed M. El-Geneidy (School of Urban Planning) - Early Career
"This award is an honor that I share with the amazing students who have worked with me over the years as part of the Transportation Research at McGill (TRAM) research group, and without whom my research would not have been possible. I wish to thank these current students and alumni, as well as my colleagues in the School of Urban Planning who nominated me for the award. Thank you also to the Faculty of Engineering for this very special recognition. It means a lot to me."

Jorge Angeles (Mechanical Engineering)
"Receiving this award is a honour that I share with all those who have helped me, achieve this recognition. I wish to thank the colleagues who nominated me and those who supported my nomination. My research work has flourished since I joined McGill almost 26 years ago. Thanks to the research support that I found in the McGill environment, I could complete these projects at an unprecedented rate."
