The Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC), its members and associates are always at the forefront in providing Canada’s most innovative educational programs and unique mentorship to support the future generations of our industry.

Efforts are always geared towards means to expose, entice, and fulfill their interest in designing and building with steel.

Recently a noteworthy effort by a group of CISC Atlantic members and associates led to the fabrication of a teaching aid for Dalhousie Engineering students. Their commitment is commendable, for their goal is to provide a structure that encourages a practical approach to educate students about steel construction.

We extend our congratulations to the team that put this steel structure together!
