Speaker

Tijana Smiljanic, P.Eng.

Designer, McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd.

Tijana is an exceptional engineer with more than 10 years of design, leadership, and project management experience. Throughout her career with McElhanney, she has specialized in transportation design-build projects and public-private partnerships, and contributed to major projects including the Powell Street Overpass, the Port Mann/Highway 1 Upgrading, and the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission.

She has emerged as an inspiration to the company’s young professionals, particularly to women, and quickly risen to positions of responsibility, not only because of her technical knowledge but also her creativity, strong interpersonal skills, and willingness to take on leadership roles. Tijana is a tireless volunteer, exhibiting poise and wisdom beyond her years. Within the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies BC (ACEC-BC) she has chaired the Young Professionals Group and championed school outreach activities. She volunteered with Science World’s SciTech Summer Camp, and was an active mentor with KidStart. Her professional service contributions throughout the first decade of her engineering career were recognized in 2016 when she was awarded the ACEC-BC Young Professional Award.

For her leadership and inspirational accomplishments, Engineers and Geoscientists BC presented Tijana Smiljanic with the Young Professional Award in 2017.
