Whereas a committee of former students, colleagues and friends of Jagannath Mazumdar, Adjunct Professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and of Applied Mathematics has raised the sum of $13,500 and given it to the University for the purpose of establishing a prize, the following rules are hereby made:
- There shall be a prize to be known as the "J. Mazumdar Prize in Engineering and Mathematics" which shall be available for award annually.
- (a) The value of the prize shall be $650 or such other amount as the Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences may from time to time determine.
(b) The prize shall be in the form of a certificate and a cash cheque of the said amount.
- To be eligible for the prize, a student must have completed the requirements of the Bachelor of Engineering degree in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences.
