York University Environmental Planning and Design Summer 2014 Workshop
Staff from Dillon Consulting Limited recently taught the York University Environmental Planning and Design Summer 2014 workshop course. The course took students through the work done to date and currently underway to re-imagine Toronto’s Port Lands.
Twenty MES first and second year students gathered in the GESSA Graduate Lounge to discuss the phrase “What I wish I knew in my first year.” This Brainspill featured four presentations that provided great information on research projects and interests. One of the main messages from this Q&A session was to utilize all York University really has to offer in studies, internships, scholarships and work abroad opportunities.
