Abstract: To meet the practical needs of the building industry, Sir George Williams University (Montreal) plans to launch this fall a building-engineering program. The new curriculum is expected to mould engineers better equipped than in the past to assume responsible positions in the construction industry. The need for such a practice-oriented program is acute, since today's building projects are increasing in size and complexity, creating demands for greater knowledge and improved techniques for designers, improved products from manufacturers, increased competence for contractors, and improved management and control.
