On January 21st, 2016, the UBC CSCE Student Chapter welcomed over five hundred industry representatives, alumni, and Civil Engineering students to another successful Industry Night. This annual event is the largest student hosted networking event within the Faculty of Applied Science, providing students with an excellent opportunity to network with Civil Engineering professionals in an open and social environment.
Over 100 industry members and alumni attended Industry Night this year with 26 companies providing sponsorship for the event. During the formal presentation part of the event, the four platinum sponsors, Fluor Canada, Glotman Simpson, Keller Canada, and Kryton International, each took the stage to speak about their companies. Student Chapter President, Curtis Flack, spoke briefly about the Chapter’s activities and student members before passing it over to CSCE Vancouver Chapter representative, Tian Wang, to present three CSCE scholarships. The scholarships were awarded to three Civil Engineering students who have demonstrated initiative and commitment to bettering the Civil Engineering community.
Networking and mingling resumed after the speeches. Several of UBC Engineering’s student design teams, including Concrete Canoe, the EERI Seismic Design Team, Steel Bridge, and Concrete Toboggan, had displays set up showcasing their respective design projects.
The UBC CSCE Student Chapter would like to thank all of our guests as well as our sponsor companies for making this our most successful Industry Night so far! We are very grateful for the generous support provided by sponsor companies; this support is integral to the success of the event. A complete list of sponsor companies can be found here.
