This Etkin Medal for Excellence was established by the late University Professor Bernard Etkin (EngPhys 4T1), who served as Chair of Engineering Science (1967-1972) and Dean of the Faculty (1973-1979). It commemorates his career-long interest in the theory and application of solid and fluid mechanics, subjects he taught for many years to EngSci students and which were the basis of most of his research and professional work. The medal is awarded annually to an EngSci student on the basis of outstanding performance in selected courses in solid and fluid mechanics in the second and third year of the curriculum.

The U of T Student Leadership Awards (UTLSA)-formerly Gordon Cressy Awards-are presented to graduating students for outstanding student leadership, service, and commitment to the university.
