Helping to lead Internet of Things-based projects

Esteve Hassan, an Electrical and Computer Science professor at Mohawk College, leads Internet of Things-based projects in the new Technology Automation Lab (IIOT).

Hassan came to Mohawk in 2017 and immediately availed himself of the research resources and support available at Mohawk. Through his talent and experience, Esteve works with the IDEAWORKS team to solve industry challenges quickly in the transformative area of IIOT.

“Mohawk is a leader in applied research and has a strong reputation,“ says Hassan.

Hassan has completed the first phase of two projects funded through the Ontario Centres of Excellence and is involved in several others in health care, building automation and IIOT.

“There are big things ahead for the lab,” said Jeff McIsaac, General Manager of the Additive Manufacturing Innovation Centre at Mohawk. “It will bring great benefits to our partners and position them well to understand and adopt the technology.”

Hassan holds a PhD and a master of engineering (MEng) from the University of Limerick in Ireland, and a master of science (MSc) from the University of Jordan. He has taught at Brandon University, and is passionate about student learning. “I try to inspire them to reach their potential. It’s up to us to show them how to leave their mark.”
