Nigerian- born Professor Akindele Odeshi, an Associate Professor and Undergraduate Chair at the Engineering Department of the University of Saskatchewan, received the Fellow of Engineers Canada (FEC) awards by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS). The award was presented during APEGS annual general meeting in Regina on Saturday 4th May 2019.
The prestigious award is given to individuals recognized by Engineers Canada for having given noteworthy service to the engineering profession, upon recommendation by APEG. Engineers upon whom this honor is bestowed are awarded the privilege of the use of the designation “Fellow of Engineers Canada”, or FEC.
About Professor Akindele Odeshi
Prior to joining the University of Saskatchewan as an Assistant Professor in 2008, Dr. Odeshi worked as a Research Associate at the University of Technology Chemnitz, Germany and the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg Canada. He is actively engaged in microstructure-design of metallic alloys for defense, aerospace, and automotive applications. Recent research activities include the role of microstructure in deformation and failure of structural materials under dynamic shock loading. With a view to expanding the applications of C/C composites to areas where their good thermal and mechanical properties are desirable but economically not justifiable, Dr. Odeshi developed a cost-effective method for the manufacture of C/C-SiC composites. His areas of current and future research interest include synthesis and characterization of high-performance composite materials, high strain-rate testing, deformation, and failure analysis, and structure-property-relation in engineering materials. He is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) and Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum (CIM). He currently serves on the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Board of Saskatchewan.
He also serves as a Pastor at the Redeemed Christain Church of God (RCCG), Jesus house for All Nation in Saskatoon.
