Dr. Trevor WilliamsDr. Trevor John Williams graduated from Imperial College in 1987 with a B.Eng. in Aeronautical Engineering followed, a few years later, by a M.Sc. in Management Science from Southampton University.

Trevor worked for 23 years in the aerospace industry, for British Aerospace (UK), SENER and CASA (Spain), Dynacs (USA), Eutlesat (France) and MDA (Canada). During this part of his career, Trevor worked on communications satellites, human-rated vehicles and low earth orbit observation satellites

In 2008, Trevor continued his lifelong pursuit of knowledge by commencing his PhD studies at UVic. The title of Trevor’s dissertation is Probabilistic Power Flow Modeling of Renewable Energy and PEV Grid Interactions. This research makes significant contributions to our understanding of the challenges and opportunities presented by the integration into distribution networks of plug-in electric vehicles and distributed energy resources

A special convocation ceremony was held for Trevor at Royal Jubilee Hospital on January 10th, 2013. On behalf of the Senate of the University of Victoria, Dr. David W. Capson, Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, awarded Trevor a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). Trevor passed away peacefully the following morning surrounded by family and friends

At the convocation ceremony, Trevor’s wife Valerie was by his side, as were his brothers Stephen and Philip Williams and his mother Mair Williams, from Wales. Trevor also generously shared this celebration with his fellow students, colleagues, friends as well as UVic faculty members who had the pleasure of working with Trevor during his doctoral studies.

The Faculty of Engineering has established the Dr. Trevor John Williams Memorial Fund to create a legacy in Trevor’s name. If you would like to make a donation in memory of Trevor, you can give via credit card here

Jacques Van Campen UVic Engineering alumni Jacques Van Campen has come full circle from UVic Engineering outreach participant to Senior Vice President of Power Monitoring and Control at Schneider Electric.

An innocuous grade 9 career day visit marked the beginning of Van Campen's journey towards becoming an electrical engineer and a Senior Vice President for Schneider Electric. In 1988, Jacques Van Campen was one of 26 engineers in the first graduating class from the Faculty of Engineering.

Jerome Etwaroo Jerome Etwaroo, a recent graduate from the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was attracted to UVic through its Engineering Bridge program. Jerome had previously worked in Ontario where he held a diploma in electronics engineering. "I have always thought about pursuing a degree in engineering. The turning point for me to return to college and university came when I realized that the work I was doing was very similar to the work of an engineer. Getting an engineering degree would provide me with the necessary credentials and open doors of opportunity."

Dr. Curran Crawford Dr. Curran Crawford's passion is energy and his research is motivated by a desire to enable a societal transition to a sustainable future. Raised in Victoria, Curran obtained his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering at UVic in 2001.

An interest in aerospace took Curran to MIT for his master's degree. During the first year there, he realized his true interests lay in sustainable energy technologies, so a transition took place towards wind turbines. Along with courses in the wider issues associated with energy, he continued his work on wind turbines during his PhD at Cambridge University in the UK.
