Metallurgical Engineering Ph.D. 1992 Alumnus gives $3.4 million gift to McGill to establish a new interdisciplinary centre



We are proud of Dr. Yan P. Lin’s accomplishments and recognizant of his great spirit of generosity. Dr. Lin arrived to our department in 1986 from China and registered in our M.Eng. degree under the supervision of our late colleague professor Melek Akben. Soon he was promoted to the PhD program, which he completed in 1992. Professor Steve Yue served as his co-supervisor. In the photo Professor George Demopoulos, Chair of our department presents Dr. Lin with a memento from his PhD defense time. Also in the photo, Dean of Engineering Professor Jim Nicell.
