Effective July 1, we are pleased to announce that Professor Brent Sleep has been reappointed for another 5-year term as Chair of the Department of Civil & Mineral Engineering by Dean Cristina Amon. Professor Sleep joined the Department in 1990, being promoted to Associate Professor in 1995 and Full Professor in 2000.
Under Professor Sleep’s leadership, the Department name has changed to Civil & Mineral Engineering to reflect the community of students in the Department from the Civil Engineering and the Lassonde Mineral Engineering Programs. Several new outstanding faculty members have joined the Department since 2013 and graduate enrolment and research funding have increased. On behalf of the Department, we would like to congratulate him on his reappointment to this role and are looking forward to the next five years!
