Dr. A.O. Abd El Halim, chair of the department, was awarded the 2005 Sandford Fleming Award by the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering. Ken McMartin, laboratory manager with the department, was made president-elect of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers. Dr. Tim Law, professor of geotechnical engineering and Dr. Jagmohan Humar, distinguished research professor, were both inducted as Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Engineering.
