IMAGINE YOUR DESIGN HERE: UMES launches design competition to re-imagine the atrium glass panels

Call for Submissions: UMES launches design competition to commemorate the 14 victims of the December 6th L’École Polytechnique massacre.

March 6, 2019 — 


History

On December 6th, 1989, a man entered an Engineering classroom at École Polytechnique in Montréal with an automatic weapon. He ordered all of the men to go to the right side of the room and the women to the left. He then proceeded to fire at the young women. Fourteen women were killed on that day, while thirteen others were injured.

This tragic act of violence against women cannot go unrecognized and it is our duty to remember these young and bright engineering students.

    Once I was in the city, so I got the opportunity to go to the memorial design competition with a few friends. I could literally see the innovation of the students from their projects.
