Engineering at Dalhousie: Making things happen
Dal News
March is National Engineering Month. The month-long celebration recognizes the tremendous work that engineers do to continuously improve the world we live in, which, in turn, makes it a more efficient and comfortable place to live. Engineers have designed and influenced a multitude of resources that we rely on daily, many of which we might take for granted because we've become so accustomed to them. However, when we drive across a bridge, take a flight in a plane, use a computer or use our smart phones, we experience the brilliant work of engineers. Thanks in part to their work, we can work more efficiently, play more safely and enjoy life more fully.
