Turkstra Talks is a distinguished speaker series that brings cities into our classrooms to revitalize our urban perspectives and motivate our connections to cities.
The Turkstra Chair in Urban Engineering invites experts from professional practice, government, and academia to present a talk on the state of the art in their field. Students have a chance to broaden their horizons in urban engineering, and faculty have an opportunity to engage in the urban discourse together.
Every month, the Turkstra Chair in Urban Engineering invites a distinguished speaker from professional practice, government, and academia to present a lecture on the state of the art in their field, giving students an opportunity to enhance their understanding of cities, and offer faculty an opportunity to engage in the conversation. Each event will provide an opportunity for participants to engage with the material presented and to interact with the speaker in a more meaningful manner in a networking social.
Speakers will have a profile on the University of Waterloo’s website on Urban Engineering in Cities. A poster for the event will be posted to faculty and relevant student groups on campus.
