Awards will be presented at the 06 October lunch meeting to the winners of the Co-Op Spring WorkTerm reports Awards of Excellence.  Members of the VIES/CSSE Fellows judged for the reports nominated by the UVIC Engineering and Computer Science Co-op Office for the Awards described below. To adjudicate the two distinct Awards, we referred to the original goals defined below to identify the ‘professional characteristics’ that the Awards are intended to highlight and encourage.


Sponsor: IEEE  for Communication Excellence


It is clear that communication skills are critical for professional success.  Without clear communications, engineering career paths are limited. It is never too early to pay attention to this important professional attribute.  The adjudicators put extra weight on the ability of the student to clearly identify the problem to be solved, the plan of work, sound conclusions and recommendations.  The benefits of the engineering work to the company or customer may be lost if clear recommendations that can lead to good, ongoing action plans are not communicated to the client.


Carly Stokes – Feasibility of Low Embodied Energy Softwood Lumber Drying Systems on the West Coast of British Columbia



Sponsor: CAMP 23 of the Corporation of the Seven Wardens for Client Impact


There is an engineering approach to solving problems beyond the application of advanced technical skills.  This award recognizes students who have been able to apply a methodical approach to solving a client’s problem which are primarily technical in nature, that has a clear impact on their employer's business. It usually takes into account the costs and benefits of the solution created by the student.  


Sema Hamidi – Construction of New Building vs. Renovating Existing Facilities for Canadian Navy Enhanced Navy Boarding Party & Boat Troop
