As a child, Camosun Mechanical Engineering faculty member Imtehaze Heerah was fascinated by his father’s work as Manager of the Public Works department for the town of Vacoas, Republic of Mauritius.

“My dad was always surrounded by heavy machinery and he was dealing with operations, people and sourcing all day,” he recalls. “I was exposed to the whole field from the bottom up and I took a liking to it.” At home, he’d dismantle his toys to discover how they worked. “My thinking was that if someone put it together at some point I should be able to take it apart and figure it out—that was just a natural thing for me.”
