The Hole School of Construction Engineering

Since its establishment in 1990, the Hole School of Construction Engineering (known at the time as the Construction Engineering and Management Group) has helped the construction industry in Alberta improve its project performance and enhance its competitive position by delivering cutting-edge tools and practices to construction owners, contractors, and tradespeople while providing a unique training opportunity for hundreds of highly qualified personnel.

The success and distinctiveness of the HSCE's research and graduate education programs are a consequence of a development of strong industrial research partnerships focused on advancing research, student education, and overall practice. This collaborative approach has garnered widespread support from numerous funding agencies, policymakers, and industrial practitioners and remains a primary example of the achievements that can arise from effective partnerships with industry.
