Professor Matti Siemiatycki

University of Toronto

Cities around the world are investing heavily in infrastructure mega-projects to stimulate economic productivity, job growth, environmental sustainability and engagement in society for all. Yet mega-projects are often vastly over-budget and behind schedule, putting vital projects at risk and stretching public confidence to its limits. Prof. Siemiatycki's talk explores the causes of cost overruns and the solutions that have proven to reduce them.

Note: This presentation will be preceded by an information session for prospective students interested in learning more about the University of Toronto. 10th, 11th and 12th-grade high school students are encouraged to attend with their families.
