$2-million donation supports McGill-industry collaboration and entrepreneurship

March 26, 2012

A $2-million endowed donation from alumnus William Seath will now allow McGill University's engineering faculty to place greater emphasis on the "development" aspect of research and development. The new William and Rhea Seath Awards in Engineering Innovation will support and recognize annually 2 individuals in the faculty -- either undergrads, graduate students, or professors -- who are conducting groundbreaking research with the potential for entrepreneurship. Another portion of the donation will support a full-time Industrial Research Development and Engagement Officer in the faculty. McGill News Release
