Hamilton students place 6th at MCAA competition

Despite an abrupt end to the 2019-2020 academic school year and cancellation of the convention where MCA American’s 2020 International Student Competition was to take place, the McMaster student chapter of the Mechanical Contractors Association Hamilton Niagara (MCAHN) managed to place 6th in the annual contest.

This year’s challenge project involved a chiller and cooling tower replacement in a New York City central utilities plant. More than 30 submissions were completed, and 59 school chapters participated from across North America, with the McMaster chapter being the sole submission from a Canadian group.

Congratulations go out to the team, which included, from left, Jeremy Bradley, Saud Ahmed, Jason Dales, Kristin Bennett, Yasmin Jad Allah and Brett Pajor.
