This is what I want to be doing when I'm done.
Department of Civil Engineering
This department within the Faculty of Engineering is being rewarded for developing an innovative undergraduate design course in 2002-03. In the course, 63 fourth-year Calgary engineering students gained real-life, hands-on international experience in Portugal working on design proposals for a project related to Alta de Lisboa, the largest urban renewal project in Europe. The students worked with the Portuguese developer (Sociedade Gestora de Alta de Lisboa) on the highly multidisciplinary, cross-cultural and challenging design and management project. U of C engineering professors Dr. Janaka Ruwanpura and Dr. Andrew MacIver managed the course, which included more than 40 academic and industry advisers from Calgary and Lisbon.
