Celebrate! Teaching. Learning. Research.

Dr. Chui has been invited to this year's event and will be recognized for receiving the Canadian Academy of Engineering Fellow. Congratulations, Dr. Chui!


Professor Gerhard Schickhofer is awarded the 2019 Marcus Wallenberg Prize for the devlopment of cross-laminated timber, CLT, which has made wooden skyscrapers possible. The Prize was announced during the 2019 World Wood Day Symposium in Austria on 22 March.


ARTS research group is proud to acknowledge one of our group members (Md Abdul Hamid Mirdad) has won the award of 2019 Catherine Lalonde Memorial Scholarship. Md Abdul is a 3rd year PhD candidate in Civil Engineering at University of Alberta. His thesis examines the structural performance of Mass Timber Panel-Concrete (MTPC) Composite Floor System with an insulation layer and inclined Self-Tapping Screws, at both 30° and 45°, to facilitate a partial shear transfer and composite action between the components. And this is the second time that student from ARTS research group wins this prize. Congratulations Abdul!
