David Sumner DEC, BEng, MASc, PhD, PEng
Professor Mechanical Engineering

Originally from Montreal, I have been a faculty member in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan since 1999. My main research interests are in bluff-body aerodynamics and experimental fluid mechanics. Most of my research is fundamental in nature rather than applied, and I supervise a small team of four to five graduate students. Using the traditional blackboard and coloured chalk, I teach courses in fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, and thermodynamics. In the past, I have served as our department’s undergraduate program chair and graduate program chair, and have been the accreditation lead for our mechanical engineering program.
