Carleton Grad Student Wins an NSERC Science Action Award

Brandon Robinson, a Carleton graduate student, has just won one of NSERC’s prestigious Science Action video awards. He placed second in the English category. .Robinson, a Master of Applied Science student in Civil Engineering at Carleton, has always been awestruck by large man-made structures like high-rise buildings and long-span bridges. The remarkable skylines of cities like Toronto and NYC inspired him to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering.  He earned his degree from Carleton in 2016, having completed two terms of NSERC USRA supported research, and 20 months of co-op work placements. The following year he began working towards his Master’s degree supported by an NSERC CGS-M award, motivated by that same inspiring imagery, and encouraged by new ideas.NSERC asked participants to submit a one-minute video about their research.
