Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering students Thomas Lato (standing), Karim Sachedina (seated) and Mdrashidul Islam (using the computer) worked with Atef Mohany, PhD, Associate Professor, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, to create a prototype for a new vent silencer design for Stoddard Silencers.

Why clamping down on industrial noise is a sound idea

Scarborough, Ontario-based manufacturer Stoddard Silencers of Canada wanted to develop a smaller, cost-effective vent-silencing solution that minimizes noise without sacrificing safety. Together with Mechanical Engineering master’s students Karim Sachedina, Thomas Lato and Mdrashidul Islam, Dr. Atef Mohany created a prototype for a streamlined and acoustically absorptive cone-shaped attachment for Stoddard’s vent silencers.

University’s international research co-ops accelerate career prospects while promoting cultural awareness

Research co-ops prepare undergraduate students for post-graduate school and help them explore what a career in research looks like. Completing your co-op in another country takes that learning experience to a whole new level. Take it from Kandarp Gandhi and Kevin Francis, two University of Ontario Institute of Technology students in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science who completed summer research co-ops at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Ropar in Punjab, India.
