Professor Constantin Christopoulos (CivE) recently won the Young Engineer Achievement Award from Engineers Canada for his leadership and dedication to the field of engineering.

At an age when many researchers are just beginning their careers, Constantin Christopoulos is already recognized as a leader in his field. He has led development of a new damping system that significantly improves the response of high-rise buildings to wind and seismic loading. This system is expected to result in more cost-effective designs and increase the safety of our infrastructure. In 2008, Professor Christopoulos received the Young Engineer Medal from the Professional Engineers of Ontario.

Professor Christopoulos is one of six members of the U of T engineering community to receive Engineers Canada awards this year.
