Chris Vandelaar Wins Engineering Award of Recognition
Tuesday, April 12, 2011
Chris Vandelaar, Research and Undergraduate Project Manager in University Machine Services (UMS), was nominated for the Engineering Award of Recognition for the work he has done in setting up the student shop space in the Claudette MacKay-Lassonde Pavilion (CMLP) and for the work he has done in setting up and implementing the student shop safety training.
“Because of the work Chris has done, the students are receiving training that not only gives them the safety aspects of working in a shop, but also gives them a basic understanding of machining and manufacturing techniques,” says Western Engineering Dean Andrew Hrymak. “In fact, Western’s Health and Safety team wants to use the training program that Chris has developed as a model for other student shops on campus.” (read more)

Tony Straatman and Kamran Siddiqui, two Western Engineering professors who specialize in mechanical engineering, were asked to reconfigure a mechancial valve know as the Teck® II that has been used in toilets for more than 80 years. The pair worked with the team at University Machine Services to create samples valves for testing.... each one only the size of a stack of six dimes. (read more)
