Stantec is a global company with operations in Canada, the United States and the Caribbean.  To date, students have completed projects in Edmonton, Alberta and Lexington, KY.  For the 2012-13 academic year we will be at the Halifax office in Nova Scotia.



Students will work with a Stantec engineer at a Stantec office and a WPI faculty advisor at the WPI Campus. Project topics will cover the full range of CEE focus areas – including sustainable solutions, civil engineering and environmental engineering. Topics will be selected based on student interest and current activities at the selected Stantec office. Past topics include College Sustainability Designs, Green Guide for Roads, Sustainable Community Design, Renewable Energy Applications, Sustainable Landscape Architecture, Dam Construction and Coal Combustion By-Products. The Halifax office is one of the largest Stantec offices in North America and regularly works on projects in sustainable solutions, geotechnical engineering, materials engineering (concrete, etc), structural engineering and environmental engineering. To see a more detailed description of past projects, visit the CEE department's Stantec Project Center page.
