On May 31, 2017, following the graduation ceremony for Civil Engineering students, a Graduation Celebration for the Class of 2017 took place at Sage Bistro. Graduating students from undergraduate and graduate programs attended with their friends and family members to celebrate the occasion.
Several graduating students were honoured for their achievements during their time at UBC. Undergraduate Academic Achievement Awards went to: Gerald Epp, who had the top grades for fourth year; and Mandy Tam and Kimberly Subianto who had the first and second-highest average grades over four years, respectively.
Awards were also given out to student project groups: Team 5 (Adam Abdelkhalek, David Gingrich Riekman, Kunal Sethi, Sebastian Silva Madrigal, Tijana Sljivic, and Manvir Dhillon), Team 16 (Nathan Chan, Jeffrey Chun, Jessica Francis, Nishchhal Gautam, Ryan Li and Zicheng Wen), and Team 24 (Mona Dahir, Jasninder Gill, Danny Hsieh, Rachel Jackson, Michael Louws, and Christopher Vibe) were honoured with Undergraduate Design Awards for their outstanding academic group projects.
Congratulations to the award winners, and to all the graduates in the Civil Engineering Class of 2017!
