Dr. Angus Bruneau (1935-2017)
It is with much sadness that we received news of the passing of Dr. Angus Bruneau.
Dr. Bruneau was the founding Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Memorial University in 1968. He introduced one of the first co-operative education programs in engineering in the country and created C-CORE, today a world-renowned research organization in remote sensing, ice engineering and geotechnical engineering.
After leaving Memorial, Dr. Bruneau founded Fortis Inc. in 1987 and served as its President & CEO from 1987 – 1996 and Chairman of the Board of Directors from 1998 – 2006. Today it is one of the top 15 power utilities in North America, with over $48 billion in assets, 3.2 million customers, and revenues of over $6.8 billion per year.
The CAE is very grateful for Dr. Bruneau's considerable contributions over the years. He was one of the original 44 founding engineers of the CAE and served as our President in 1995-96.
