Brewery Tour

Fredericton is practically overflowing with local beer, from new start-ups to award-winning breweries. With the highest concentration of craft breweries and tasting experiences in the Maritimes, Fredericton offers a brew for every taste.

This event is as easy as it gets: hop on a bus and tour around town enjoying delicious, locally crafted beer! The tour will make stops at three of Fredericton’s hottest microbreweries returning to the hotel just in time for bed. (Feel free to stay out late too!) Food will be provided.

Infrastructure in the Information Age

A discussion on the future of civil engineering, how data and technology is changing our built environment and what challenges face our youth.

While the civil engineering profession has lagged to embrace technology, evidence is mounting that the way civil engineers “do business” is changing dramatically. We are using drones to conduct high resolution surveys, smart cars are changing the design of our roadway network, mobile technology is allowing us to collect massive amounts of data, and artificial intelligence is helping municipal planners make decisions. How can we embrace this changing landscape in the civil engineering profession? What barriers and challenges can we anticipate? What can we expect to happen in the next 20 years?

Student Awards and Competitions

National Civil Engineering Design CAPSTONE Competition – The CAPSTONE project is the cornerstone of many accredited civil engineering programs in Canada. Each civil engineering program will be invited to submit a nomination for a single entry into the competition in any specialty area. Two students from each nominated team will attend the conference and present their project in a poster session before a jury. The winner and runners-up will be announced at the Student Awards Luncheon.

National Student Chapter Leaders Workshop – This workshop will provide a stimulating platform for incoming CSCE Student Chapter leaders from across Canada to interact and exchange ideas. The workshop will address topics such as keys to a dynamic student chapter, member recruitment and retention strategies, finances and fundraising strategies, member and faculty participation, setting SMART chapter goals and action plan, and the roadmap to becoming the best student chapter.

Student Paper Competitions – This competition presents an opportunity for students to share the results of their research projects. This year, the competition will be held on specialty conference basis. Meaning each of the specialty conferences will be recognising the top student papers. Student membership is required for eligibility.

Student Awards Luncheon – This event will celebrate the achievements of our students from across the country. It also offers an excellent networking opportunity for students. Nearly 400 conference attendees participated in this event in Vancouver last year. Some of the awards to be given will include the President’s Awards for Outstanding Student Chapters, Best National Capstone Design Awards, Best Student Paper Awards, and Awards for the Canadian National Concrete Canoe and Canadian National Steel Bridge Competitions
