Student researcher places third at Polytechnics Canada Showcase

BCIT Civil Engineering student Stevan Gavrilovic

The advances in applied research at BCIT were put on full display in Ontario November 8-9, 2011, at the sixth annual Polytechnics Canada Science and Technology Showcase at Humber College in Toronto. BCIT Civil Engineering student Stevan Gavrilovic presented his student research project, “The Development of an Innovative Cracking Technique and Self-Sealing Analysis of Cracked and Hydrated Concrete,” in front of representatives from industry.

Gavrilovic’s project was selected over several other strong student research projects conducted at BCIT to represent the school in this showcase. His presentation was a hit with the panel of judges as he took home third place in an extremely competitive field.

“I had a great experience,” said Gavrilovic, a third-year student in the Bachelor of Civil Engineering Degree program. “The other student projects were very good. I felt it was an accomplishment just being there, not to mention being a finalist. I was excited to be recognized for my hard work.”

On February 22, 2012, Stevan will present his project at the Advancing IDEAS event, hosted by the Applied Research Liasion Office.
