Legends - Journey to a Promised Land

5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

"Legends" is an annual Calgary Branch event featuring a Member sharing their life story. Join Ash Khan as he shares his experiences across the globe

Register by June 26, 2017

Each year, the Calgary Branch hosts an APEGA Member as they share a personal history and impart lessons learned.

Ash Khan, P.Eng., M.Sc.Ash Khan, P.Eng., M.Sc., was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Medal in 2012 for volunteer work in Afghanistan. Since retiring, he also built a school for girls in Afghanistan and drilled over 80 water wells in Pakistan, in addition to supporting four primary schools.

Ash was born in India in 1942. During the partition, he saw bloodshed and experienced life in refugee camps. His father had previously owned a successful bicycle business, but was unable to reestablish after migrating his family to Karachi, Pakistan. Living in poverty gave Ash the incentive to become an engineer.

After graduating from the University of Karachi in 1962 with a degree in engineering, Ash felt the call of the west after several classmates left to the US and UK for their masters degrees. Popular Hollywood movies such as GI Blues, and the promise of the freedom to follow his dreams emboldened him to take the leap across the Atlantic himself. He was accepted at the University of Saskatchewan in 1965 and Ash worked hard toward his Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering.

After his graduation, he worked on the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline with Shell and at Home Oil, with the Pipeline and Joint Ventures. He then worked with PanCanadian until his retirement in 1996, though he also consulted for another 8 years after that.

These days, Ash and his wife enjoy traveling. They have visited nearly all of the US states, as well as Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Europe, Africa, India, and the Middle East.
