Gina Cody is the first woman ever to be awarded a PhD in building engineering at Concordia. On September 24, 2018, Cody made a $15-million gift to Concordia's Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science. In recognition of her generosity and tremendous professional accomplishments, the faculty was renamed the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science. It became the first engineering faculty in Canada named after a woman and one of the first of its kind in the world.

We strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals, including individuals with disabilities, to engage fully. If you require disability-related accommodations, please contact by November 1 to allow us time to coordinate your request.
