Congratulations to all of the engineers and engineering graduates in Ontario making a difference this year!
OSPE’s role is to provide a platform for engineers to create positive change. There are so many individuals in the profession that are dedicated to leadership and volunteerism, so OSPE will use our blog to celebrate some of the most recent achievements and announcements each quarter. If you want to be featured next, or know someone who has news to share, send us an email or post a comment below.

Dr. Janie Wilson appointed to the Board of Canadian Society of Biomechanics
Dr. Janie Wilson received her BSCE in mathematics and engineering (mechanical) from Queen’s University (2000), followed by an MASc (2002) and then PhD (2007) in biomedical engineering from Dalhousie University (both under the supervision of Dr. Kevin Deluzio, P.Eng., the current Dean of Engineering at Queen’s University). Dr. Janie Wilson runs a multidisciplinary research program in human movement biomechanics, with a focus on understanding the role of joint-level biomechanics and muscle activity in the initiation, progression and treatment of knee osteoarthritis with arthroplasty surgery. OSPE would like to congratulate Dr. Wilson on her new appointment and extend our congratulations to all of the other new Directors of CSB.
