GSA Senator 2018-2019: Ahsan Ahmed
"The Senator is the GSA's representative to the University of Alberta Senate" (GSA Bylaw and Policy, Section D: GSA Officers, GSA Bylaw, Section D.BYL.3.3.b).
Hello! My name is Ahsan Ahmed and I am currently studying for a Master of Engineering in Construction Engineering and Management. I am honored and thrilled to be GSA’s representative to the University of Alberta Senate for the academic term of 2018-2019.
I am heavily involved when it comes to developing communities and have volunteered with a number of organizations across Alberta and have served on several University of Alberta committees, including the GSA Nominating Committee and the GSA Appeals and Complaints Board. I am currently a member of City of Edmonton Energy Transition Advisory Committee (ETAC) and the EPCOR’s Water Community Advisory Panel (CAP).
A little about myself: I was born in Pakistan and I graduated from NED University of Engineering & Technology with a Bachelor in Urban & Infrastructure Engineering from the Department of Civil Engineering. I am a Certified Construction Contract Administrator (CCCA) in Canada and have more than 10 years of experience in project and construction management at a Canadian and international level.
As member of the University of Alberta Senate, I am committed to be a positive ambassador and leader by fostering long-term and productive relationships between University Senate and graduate students by identifying and responding to academic development opportunities and by actively seeking input in determining graduate student issues, gathering graduate student opinion, and communicating with graduate students so they can be better represented at the Senate table.
If you see me on campus please do not hesitate to say Hello! Also, feel free to ask or email me if you have any questions.
