Two Schulich School of Engineering professors and a University of Calgary alumnus have been recognized by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) with Summit Awards.

Jocelyn Grozic, associate dean (research), received the Women in Engineering and Geoscience Champion Award for her passionate support of women in engineering. She has striven to create an inclusive and supportive environment since joining the faculty.

Josephine Hill, Tier II Canada Research Chair in Hydrogen and Catalysis, received the Research Excellence Award for her leading-edge research on alternative energy and sustainable fuel generation. Her research focuses on improving the efficiency of chemical and electrochemical processes to reduce their effects on the environment.

“Dr. Josephine Hill and Dr. Jocelyn Grozic are outstanding examples of engineering leadership within the Schulich School of Engineering,” says Bill Rosehart, dean of the Schulich School of Engineering. “As a school, we are focused on fostering diversity and research that makes a difference. These awards demonstrate the hard work, dedication and vision to achieve these goals.”

Meanwhile, UCalgary alumnus Tracey Stock received the Community Service Award for outstanding contributions to society. He has given more than 100,000 hours of volunteer service to various non-profit organizations, including 45 years with Scouts Canada, and has made 625 blood, plasma, and platelet donations to Canadian Blood Services.

The APEGA Summit Awards celebrate leadership and excellence in the practices of engineering and geoscience in Alberta.
