On Wednesday, February 8th, SOM Director of Sustainable Engineering Luke Leung will speak at a career symposium on engineering for the built environment at Concordia University in Montreal. The annual event is hosted by the Montreal Chapter of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and serves as an opportunity for engineering students from Montreal's three major universities to meet prospective employers and learn more about the field. Leung will give a presentation titled "Burj Khalifa: Engineering the World's Tallest Building – the Future of Cities?"
Leung plays an active role with ASHRAE, serving as a Distinguished Lecturer with ASHRAE Illinois, as Chairman of the ASHRAE Committee on Tall Buildings, and as a member of the editorial team for ASHRAE handbooks on tall buildings.
