BCIT Student Wins APEGBC Photo Contest

Congratulations to Spencer Behn, a civil engineering student at BCIT, for his winning submission to the inaugural APEGBC Student Photo Contest. His photograph, “Lights, Guideway, Action!”, shows the westbound signal lights mounted on the guideway of the new Evergreen Line between Lincoln Station and Coquitlam Central Station, over Barnet Highway. The picture offers a unique perspective on an everyday object. The photo was taken last summer, when Behn worked as a traffic assistant at the City of Coquitlam. He visited, inspected and inventoried over 160 signalised intersections in the city.

Behn was awarded the grand prize of $750 and a three-day package to APEGBC’s 2015 Annual Conference and Annual General Meeting in Kelowna. A framed print of the photo was a hot item at the Silent Auction at the President’s Award Gala, held during the conference.

Have you seen an amazing aspect of engineering or geoscience at field school, on a co-op work term, capstone project, or with your student team? We welcome you to share your photos throughout the year on the APEGBC Student Program Facebook page.
