The National Order of Quebec is the highest order of merit in the Canadian province, which was established in 1984 when Lieutenant Governor Jean-Pierre Cote approved by Royal Assent the National Order of Quebec. The honourary ceremony is to be held on 7 June.

According to the McGill University website, Habashi is widely known in his field for the innovative formulation, modeling and application of finite element methods to computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

His work has kept Canada “on the map" in terms of worldwide CFD R&D. He has developed efficient applied mathematics solutions to a wide range of complex aerospace problems for aircraft, rotorcraft and jet engines. In the in-flight icing area, his unique formulation has resulted in a code used worldwide throughout the aerospace industry.

A McGill graduate, Habashi joined the McGill Faculty of Engineering in 2000, and holds the post of Industrial Research Chair of the NSERC-J.-Armand Bombardier-Bell Helicopter-CAE for Multidisciplinary Computational Fluid Dynamics. He is also an Honourary Professor at TongJi University in Shanghai.

Habashi is a co-founder of the supercomputer consortium CLUMEQ, the Canadian Society of CFD and of Quebec’s joint Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering. Recognised around the world as a pioneer in his field, Habashi has received numerous scientific and industrial awards and accolades, including NSERC’s Steacie Prize, the Killam Prize in Engineering in 2009 and the James C. Floyd Award from the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada in 2010.

He also received the 2011 McCurdy Award given out by the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI)

Habashi is also the nephew of the great Egyptian Egyptologist Labib Habashi who was responsible for many great discoveries in Luxor and Upper Egypt.
