Several students in Dr. Mustafa Ahmed’s Environmental Engineering course (ENVE 4101) have been recognized for their work in developing best practices in waste management. The awards were handed out at a recent presentation ceremony hosted by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Robyn Chatwin-Davies was presented with the Award of Distinction for Top Student, while the Term Project Awards were presented to students with the top term projects in the “Development of a Methodological Framework for the Recycling of Drywall.” The Term Project Awards was presented to Dina Megalla, Trevor Shiomi, Robyn Chatwin-Davies, Lealem Abebe, Jean-Charles Finnigan, Alexander Fisher, Amanda Bromley, Baqar Rizvi and Ryan Sneek.
The Morrison Hershfield Limited Award of Excellence was presented to students with top term project rankings. This year’s term project topic was “Development of a Methodological Framework for the Recycling of Drywall”. The project groups presented case studies from the United States, Sweden, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Japan, after which they developed a framework for a city in Canada.
The jury was composed of Dr. Paul Van Geel, professor and chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering; Michael Clapham, senior environmental specialist at Natural Resources Canada; Dr. Mustafa Ahmed, the course instructor and environmental engineer at Morrison Hershfield Limited; and Jamie Bonany, the course’s teaching assistant. The award certificates and cash prizes were presented by Andrew Harkness, manager of the Ottawa Environmental Department at Morrison Hershfield Limited.
“It’s great to have a local consulting firm support our students,” said Van Geel. “The students appreciate the real-world perspective they bring to the classroom.”
“Morrison Hershfield was very pleased to return again this year, as a representative of the consulting engineering industry, to partner with Carleton University in sponsoring these awards and to share perspectives on the environmental sector,” said Harkness. “The students’ work was extremely impressive and they are all to be congratulated.”
The ENVE 4101 course provides students with a comprehensive background in waste management and includes topics such as the logistics of waste, landfill operations, hazardous waste management, and design of composting facilities, waste to energy and mine waste.
