The 2017 UBC CSCE Industry Night took place on January 26th in the Pharmaceutical Science Centre. The Chapter welcomed almost four hundred guests, including industry representatives from 76 companies, UBC alumni, and Civil Engineering students. This year’s Industry Night was the largest networking event hosted by any CSCE student group across Canada and the most successful one in the chapter’s history.
The event began with casual mingling and formal presentation started with a welcome message from the Lead Industry Night Coordinator, Peggy Shen. After that, representatives of Platinum Sponsors Acciona Infrastructure Canada, Flatiron Construction, Fluor, Kryton International and RAM Engineering were invited to the stage to present about their companies. The stage was then passed on to Chapter Co-Presidents Antonio Castro and Tyler Ezzy to speak briefly about the chapter’s achievements this school year. The Chair of the CSCE Vancouver Section, Graham Walker, concluded the presentations by announcing the winners of the CSCE Scholarships. These recognize and reward students that take initiative and make contribution to the Civil Engineering community.
Networking resumed after the presentations. Guests were encouraged to visit booths set up by civl student design teams Concrete Canoe, EERI Seismic Design Team, and Steel Bridge to showcase their projects and works.
