Welcome to the new Dean

The Friends of Engineering welcome the new Dean of Engineering at the University of Manitoba, Dr. Jonathan Beddoes, P.Eng.

Dr. Beddoes’ career includes industrial product and process development, research in industrial and government laboratories, as well as extensive experience in academia. Prior to joining our Faculty  he was a faculty member in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Carleton University for 18 years, including six years as Department Chair. He has taught engineering courses at all levels from first year to graduate studies. Before joining academia he worked at Pratt & Whitney Canada Inc., and Alcan Aluminium for ten years. His research interests have included high strength aluminum alloys for aircraft applications, casting and processing of aluminum for high value added sheet products, processing/recycling of Al-Si alloys, and high temperature materials for gas turbine applications. He is the (co-)author of more than 60 research papers, three patents and two books dealing with industrial processing of engineering materials.

The Friends of Engineering are looking forward to working with Dr. Beddoes to ensure the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Manitoba is the best engineering school in Canada.

Welcome to Manitoba, Jonathan!
