The original 2017 edition of this title was published in recognition of Dr. Mozammel Khan’s career in quality assurance instruction and positive impact on graduates of Sheridan College’s Quality Assurance Manfacturing Management program (PQUAS), with proceeds from the book supporting the Mozammel Khan scholarship Foundation. Khan, originally from Bangladesh, taught in Singapore before immigrating to Canada in the 1990s, where he founded the first post-secondary QA program of its kind in Ontario at Sheridan College.
Editor Lorraine Fraser collects heartfelt letters of appreciation to Khan from alumni of the PQUAS program, who share memories, successes and challenges from their time as students at Sheridan, as well as describing his impact on their careers in the field. In an autobiographical chapter, Khan shares his background in engineering and quality assurance, his journey as an immigrant, and his involvement in developing Sheridan’s PQUAS program. Dr. Iain McNab (Dean of Faculty of Applied Science and Technology) further discusses Khan’s personal history and career at Sheridan in an interview, while his political life and impact for other new immigrants are explored by Professor Jack Urowitz (Faculty of Animation, Art and Design) and Dr. Soumitra Nandi (Faculty of Applied Science and Technology).
