Get to Know Past Winners of the Chan Award

Last year’s winners of the Adrian Chan Award join the Carleton Pathway Podcast to talk about the engineering community on campus, what got them involved on campus, and how it prepared them for great careers as recent alumni. Still involved on-campus Johan Prent and Teo Blidaru share what led them to become engaged members of the engineering community, how it helped shape who they are today, and the honour of winning the award last year. The Adrian Chan Award for Volunteer and Community Service is an award issued annually, to a full–time undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in an Engineering program in the Faculty of Engineering and Design.

Inside the Episode

8:56 = Johan was a volunteer with Carleton’s Senate, the university’s most senior academic body! With over 80 members, the Senate is tasked with making important campus decisions. If you are an undergraduate student, consider joining the Senate as a student representative!
