Ontario Professional Engineer Awarded National Scholarship

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 5, 2011) - Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) is proud to recognize the accomplishment of Behn E. Conroy, LL.B, CMA, P.Eng., who has been named a recipient of a 2011 Engineers Canada-TD Insurance Meloche Monnex Scholarship.

Presented annually, the Engineers Canada national scholarships reward excellence in the Canadian engineering profession and support advanced studies and research. In 2011, three $7,500 Engineers Canada-TD Insurance Meloche Monnex Scholarships were awarded to support engineers returning to university for further study or research in a field other than engineering.

Conroy is pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto. His goal is to use his business education to further contribute to, and improve on, project management and planning processes at a leading firm in the engineering or natural resource industry. He is also interested in demonstrating the long-term, positive return on investment of mining firms who make the effort to be as environmentally sustainable as possible.
