UBC Civil Engineering graduate student Negar Roghanian has been selected to receive the 2016/2017 Killam Graduate Teaching Assistant Award. Killam Graduate TA Awards are given in recognition of outstanding contributions by teaching assistants, which have led to a “high level of respect from undergraduate students and academic or course supervisors.”

Negar has been involved in teaching a variety of courses to both undergrad and graduate students on topics such as civil engineering materials, sustainable building science, and plane surveying. She has been involved as a curriculum developer for a technical elective on environmental stewardship and engineering, and has conducted education research with Professor Susan Nesbit. Negar has also been appointed as a sessional instructor, giving guest lectures for courses at UBC Civil Engineering as well as BCIT. As a PhD student, she is a member of the materials group, where she works on sustainable concrete issues.

The Department extends congratulations to Negar on this outstanding recognition!
