Civil Forum

Established by Robert K Jones and, Sci’52, and A Joyce Jones, Arts’53, the Forum was launched in 1998 and has since involved members of the industry and research community to share their work and career experience with our students.  Our aim is to create a space where students can learn from and engage with engineers in their field of study.
The Civil Engineering Forum is held weekly on Thursdays from 11:30 am- 12:30 pm in Ellis 226. Pizza and pop are provided!
If you are interested in participating as a guest speaker or have suggestions for the Forum please contact the coordinators:
