Two School of Engineering civil engineering researchers are being recognized by the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering with CSCE Fellowships. Professors Rehan Sadiq and Kasun Hewage are among a group of civil engineers being celebrated for their election as Fellows into the organization.
The Canadian Society for Civil Engineering has a long-standing tradition of recognizing members for their career achievements and for the excellence of their technical papers. CSCE Fellowship recognition is based on an assessment by peers of a candidate’s career achievements, contributions to civil engineering, and their demonstrated leadership within CSCE and the profession.
