Individuals all across Ontario get a look into research at UOIT thanks to the Engineering Week Ontario 2005 poster

OSHAWA, Ont. - According to Professional Engineers Ontario, there are 65,000 engineers currently in the province. This week, the work of Dr. Ibrahim Dincer, a professor in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) is featured on posters all across the province in celebration of Engineering Week Ontario 2005.

Dincer and his team from UOIT have been assessing the use of fuel cell vehicles as an alternative to automobiles powered by fossil fuels. They are studying the environmental and economic impacts, as well as the technological challenges associated with the use of fuel cell technology.

In October 2004, Dincer was awarded the Premier's Research Excellence Award (PREA), a distinction that brings $100,000 in research funding from the province.
