An engineering professor at the University of Windsor is among more than two dozen people who are being appointed to the Order of Ontario.

Hoda ElMaraghy, who has worked at the university for more than two decades, is described in a news release as having been the first female dean of a faculty of engineering in Canada.

The news release also says her research into flexible manufacturing has helped manufacturers around the world.

The Order of Ontario is given to individuals who have "demonstrated excellence and achievement in any field benefiting the people of Ontario or anywhere in the world," according to a news release from the province.

A ceremony will be held at Queen's Park in Toronto on Jan. 20 for ElMaraghy and the other honourees.
