UNB Engineering Awards Evening

In addition to recognizing our student scholars and faculty members, this year we will be recognizing two alumni with the first annual UNB Engineering Distinguished Alumni Award: Bob Neill and Rod Nolan.

Dr. Bob Neill (BScME'54, DSc'85)

Bob Neill worked with the NB Electric Power Commission from 1954-64 and during that time advanced to become Chief Design Engineer. He co-founded Neill & Gunter in 1964, which grew to become one of North America's foremost design, consulting and engineering firms.

Dr. Rod Nolan (BScEE'57, MScEE'63, DSc'04)

Rod Nolan was the second person employed at Neill and Gunter, after Bob Neill. He helped grow the firm to 650 engineers, technicians, drafters, and support personnel across North America by the time it was acquired by Stantec in 2007.

Please join us in celebrating Bob and Rod, along with our student award recipients and award-winning faculty members:

  • Friday, Feb. 9, 2018
  • 5:30-9:30 p.m.
  • Student Union Building, 21 Pacey Drive, UNB Fredericton campus
