Two major Civil news stories that have been developing in recent months have been featured prominently in the latest edition of the Faculty of Applied Science’s Ingenuity magazine. In the cover story “Keeping People Safe” found on page 8, APSC reports on the earthquake early-warning system developed by Civil Professor Carlos Ventura and his team of earthquake engineers, which has recently been implemented at 51 BC schools and covered widely in the media. In “Newsworthy,” page 12, APSC reports on Civil Associate Professor Sheryl Staub-French’s recent appointment as the inaugural holder of the Goldcorp Professorship in Women in Engineering, a “leading initiative aimed at encouraging and developing gender parity in UBC Engineering programs.”
