In the news: Engineering prof retires again after building Mac-Mohawk link

The Hamilton Spectator has this story about professor Ishwar Singh, who's retiring after more than 40 years with Mohawk and McMaster University. Ishwar played a key role in building a collaborative and award-winning Bachelor of Technology program that combines the best of a Mohawk and McMaster education. “He’s probably the smartest man I’ve ever met in my life, yet he has the ability to bring that knowledge to students at any level in their academic career, and help them understand and become passionate about their own discipline,” Cheryl Jensen, Mohawk’s vice-president responsible for academic matters, told The Spectator. “He’s so motivating. He’s brilliant and he’s a gentle, kind spirit.”
