Alberta Innovators article on Steven Oosterhof
Steven Oosterhof, PhD, P.Eng., Associate Structural Engineer, DIALOG
After earning a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering in 2008 and a doctorate in structural engineering in 2013, both from the University of Alberta, it’s no surprise that Steven Oosterhof’s fingerprints are all over Edmonton. As an associate structural engineer at DIALOG, Steven has been involved with some of the city’s highest-profile and most iconic projects of recent years, including the Edmonton Arena District, the Kelly Ramsey Tower, the Edmonton Clinic Health Academy and an expansion of the Telus World of Science.
But beyond his work, Steven is deeply involved in the engineering community in Edmonton. He serves on the Consulting Engineers of Alberta’s Edmonton Buildings Committee and has maintained a strong relationship with his alma mater, the U of A, delivering guest lectures, judging student competitions and providing input to ongoing research programs.
Steven is also active outside the engineering profession, volunteering through the Alberta Science Network to visit elementary schools to share his excitement for science and engineering. He and his wife were part of a team that sponsored a family of refugees from Syria that arrived in Edmonton in December 2015. He has volunteered with the Mustard Seed and with the Mennonite Centre for Newcomers.
