200 years of engineering in Canada, Calgary

About this event

Civil engineers design, build, operate and maintain the often "taken for granted" infrastructure that underlies the daily functioning of our society; structures, transportation systems, water resources and treatment, mining and the environment.

This presentation will provide an overview of how civil engineering has evolved in the last 200 years, and how it has improved the lives of everyday people. Reference will be made to important Canadian projects such as the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the Saint Lawrence Seaway and the Confederation Bridge.

Dr Shrive is a Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Calgary and Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers. He has spent much of his career studying masonry structures. In the last few years he has introduced courses on the conservation of historic structures from the structural engineering perspective.
