Each week in Just the Fax, we will profile one of the recipients of our 2020 Richard McKeagan Scholarship Series. This week’s recipient is Alisha Suthakaran.
Alisha received a scholarship from sponsor Reliance Worldwide Corporation. She is a student at McMaster University in the fourth year of the Civil Engineering program.
“As I’ve progressed in my engineering education, I’ve begun to understand the complexities behind large-scale projects and the harmony required between the various subsystems to coordinate its execution. I hope to eventually obtain my professional engineering license and potentially be involved in bringing a large idea to life.”
“I hope to leverage what I have learned to positively contribute to an organization and the industry as a whole. In doing so, I hope that down the line, more individuals with backgrounds similar to myself will consider and pursue a career in the mechanical contracting industry.“
“I am a member of the MCAC McMaster student chapter and this year’s competition team. I have been involved in several student organizations throughout my time at university including the McMaster Engineering Society, Heavy Construction Student Association, Women in Engineering Society, and the Troitsky Bridge Competition where I am a former co-captain.”
