During the Fall Convocation on October 28, 2017, two M.Sc. in Biological Engineering students were conferred their degree: 1) Obiora Samuel Agu with the thesis “Microwave-assisted alkali pretreatment, densification and enzymatic hydrolysis of canola straw and oat hull”, and 2) Charley J. Sprenger (see photo) with the thesis “Classification and densification of municipal solid waste for biofuels applications”. Both students were supervised by Lope Tabil. Obiora is proceeding with his Ph.D. degree and Charley is currently working as Project Leader, Engineer-in-Training at the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute in Humboldt, SK.

SK regional director, Oon-Doo Baik interviewed two members (Cory Bart and Dane Steen, both from Mechanical Engineering) of The University of Saskatchewan ¼ Scale Tractor team named “U of S Sled Dogs”. The team has been participating in the ASABE International ¼ Scale Tractor Student Design Competition since 2002. For the competition, all the competing teams are provided with the same engine and a set of tires (31 hp Briggs & Stratton and Titan tires). The design of their tractors is a good open-ended project totally up to the teams. Numerous judges from industries evaluate each design for innovation, manufacturability, serviceability, safety, sound level, and ergonomics. Teams also submit a written design report. Their tractors will be tested for pull, maneuverability and durability.
