Today, more than half the world’s population lives in cities, and that number is only increasing. Tomorrow’s urban centres will face rapid population growth and increasingly complex challenges. The Turkstra Chair in Urban Engineering was created to prepare students for the difficult issues that our future cities will face. The newly-appointed Chair, Nadine Ibrahim, took the position in January 2019. Through unique coursework and extracurriculars, she’s introducing new educational attitudes that will help students learn from a network of faculty, industry professionals and global experts.
