TBT Engineering Creates a Brighter Future for Engineering Students

By Lee-Ann Camelin, Lakehead University Alumni Association

With the same spirit and drive that has made TBT Engineering a leading force in the business sector, Rob and Liana Frenette continue to demonstrate a commitment to Lakehead University through the establishment of a graduate level scholarship in civil engineering. “Having 50 years of Lakehead University in Northwestern Ontario has allowed numerous students to attend University. Without an engineering program in the region, TBT Engineering would not have been able to achieve all we have as a Northwestern Ontario business.”

In the spring of 2015, Liana Frenette, past member of Lakehead University’s Board of Directors and a Lakehead Alumna along with her husband, Rob, also a Lakehead graduate graciously made a gift of $20,000 to establish a graduate scholarship in Civil Engineering. “We rely on the students and graduates every year. A Masters in Engineering Program at Lakehead will allow many to fulfill their dreams of furthering their engineering education,” they explain.

Recently ranked as one of Canada’s top female entrepreneurs, Liana Frenette appreciates the value of a good work ethic and a dedicated team. Having just celebrated their 20th anniversary under Liana’s leadership as CEO, TBT Engineering credits their success on fostering relationships with local communities and Aboriginal communities.
