Western Engineering Design Day - Civil & Environmental Engineering Competition
Friday, February 18
8:30 am

Eight teams of fourth-year Western Civil & Environmental Engineering students will present their designs for two preliminary projects to a panel of judges. 

The first project, assigned by the City of London, instructed students to design bridge and culvert structures to replace the existing culvert that carries Wonderland Road over Snake Creek, near the London Museum of Archaeology. The designs must accommodate increasing Wonderland Road from two to four lanes while maintaining traffic except for one 48-hour closure.

The second project, assigned by Western, instructed students to design a modern, state of-the-art, environmentally friendly, and energy-efficient building to replace the aging Biochemical Engineering Building. The building should be a sustainable development education initiative that is unique in Canada, utilizing ground-breaking conservation concepts and practices, and future technologies. It should integrate technological and environmental aspects of engineering to serve a vision and a purpose.

Please note: this event is not open to the general public.  We encourage anyone interested in the projects to attend the City of London Design Competition on Tuesday, March 1 in Conron Hall (University College) from 7:00 - 10:00 pm.
