Come and join us for a Mixer open to all APEGBC Tri-City & Burnaby-New Westminster members, engineering students residing in the Tri-City area, SFU Engineering & Geoscience students and Douglas College Engineering Transfer Program students.  This is a great opportunity for professionals and students to socialize and network with fellow engineers and geoscientists in their area in a relaxed and informal environment.  You will also learn about your local APEGBC Branches and volunteering opportunities to network and give back to the community.  All disciplines in both the engineering and geosciences fields are welcome.

As a bonus, we have two speakers who will each be giving a brief but interesting talk to start off the Mixer:

We are fortunate to have James Moors, B.Sc., P.Geo. to speak about the relationship between P.Geo and P.Eng.  James graduated from the Universtiy of Waterloo in 1988, has specialized in mineral exploration for 25 years and is currently Vice President, Exploration of Canarc Resource Corp. in Vancouver, BC.  He has diversified experience in exploring for precious metal ore deposits, evaluating gold properties, managing exploration programs, etc.  He has served on the Geoscience Committee of APEGBC since 2002, and served as President of Geoscientists Canada in 2010/2011. 

We are also privileged to have Colin Savage, EIT back to provide us with some insight on the Capilano Seymour Twin Tunnels project currently being constructed.  Part of the project includes network architecture (a fibre optic network), dewatering pump control SCADA, tunnel boring machine control (PLC and HMI), Raised Bore Control, camera monitoring systems, winch/crane control, water treatment, radio system architecture and air quality monitoring.  Colin Savage obtained his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Bio-Resource Engineering from UBC with a thesis focus on image processing and instrumentation.  In parallel to his work with Planetworks consulting, Colin co-founded a start-up software development company.  He was honored as a Smithsonian Laureate in the year 2000 for his work on the computer game “Missing”.

Both James and Colin will be available to talk to attendees after their short presentations.

We look forward to seeing you there!
