Camosun expresses its sorrow and stands alongside the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc

Camosun College is horrified by the news that the remains of 215 children have been found in the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School, which sat on the traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc. Our hearts go out to the families and communities who were and are directly affected by this news and by the original loss of their children. We are all affected. This affirms Camosun’s commitment to redressing the impact of our shared history. In memory of these children, Camosun flags on both campuses will be lowered.

Faculty/staff profile

Chair, Civil Engineering Technology

Zoë Broom



TEC 117

B.A.Sc. (hons.), MA, P.Eng.

Civil Engineering Technology

School of Trades and Technology

Zoë has a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering / Water Resources from the University of Waterloo and a master’s degree in Environment and Management from Royal Roads University. She has been teaching at Camosun since 1999. The courses she usually teaches are in the fields of municipal and environmental engineering but she also loves teaching AutoCAD to the first-year students.

Zoë’s favourite thing about teaching is engaging with the students and making the content meaningful; people learn better when they can relate what they are learning to something they already value. Civil engineering affects every aspect of our lives and leads to a safer world for everyone – and, hey, who wouldn’t want to know how to calculate the flow rate in that sewer?
