Earlier in the year, our undergraduate student chapter produced an annual report for the CSCE (Canadian Society of Civil Engineers) and amidst fierce competition, their report took home one of the coveted awards!
The CSCE Student Affairs Committee evaluated final annual reports (2015-2016) from 24 schools and awarded Waterloo the Most Improved Student Chapter.
The competition was very keen with many outstanding reports, but the committee was extremely impressed with the professionalism and the quality of our report.
The committee emphasized the importance of continuing to grow our chapter and improve on the quality of our activities and participation, particularly in the areas of developing programs to further increase membership, and developing special projects with engineering content that will benefit parties outside the chapter membership.
Being involved in projects like this, is a great experience for our students and shows their leadership qualities and potential, to future employers.
