Gordon F. Anderson Scholarship Awarded to Tom Joyce

Gordon F. Anderson Scholarship Awarded to Tom Joyce

Last week, we hosted our annual celebration of the Gordon F. Anderson Scholarship in our Edmonton studio. It’s always a great evening where the Edmonton structural engineering team and University of Alberta’s engineering faculty celebrate this year’s $5000 scholarship recipient and get to know the other applicants.

About the Scholarship
The Gordon F. Anderson Scholarship is intended to encourage students to pursue advanced study in structural engineering. It is awarded annually to a University of Alberta student entering the first year of a graduate program. It’s a great way for students to mingle with practicing engineers, and for DIALOG to connect with leading young minds who may become DIALOGers one day.

2018 Scholarship Recipient: Tom Joyce
Tom has a Bachelor’s degree from Queen’s University and a Master of Science in Forestry Engineering from the University of New Brunswick. He has worked in the United Kingdom and along the Canadian West Coast as a consulting engineer with a specialization in timber structures, especially cross laminated timber. He is also an active volunteer, donating his time to read-in week and to many sustainability organizations. Tom’s contribution to research, to his communities, and to the environment we all share is why he was selected as this year’s recipient. Congratulations, Tom!

DIALOG + University of Alberta
We have a long standing history of collaboration with the University of Alberta. Fun fact: Seven of our Edmonton structural engineers are past Gordon F. Anderson Scholarship recipients! Of the Edmonton studio’s 21 structural engineers, 19 have at least one degree from University of Alberta, and the team holds a combined total of 29 U of A degrees!
