Engineers Canada kicks off National Engineering Month
National Engineering Month is a great opportunity for Canada's youth to discover their place in engineering.
March is national engineering month, Canada’s largest annual celebration of engineering. The month-long celebration will have over 500 events from coast to coast for young Canadians to learn about the engineering field.
Organized by volunteers from the provincial and territorial engineering regulators, events will include design competitions, robotics demonstrations, and science and engineering fairs. Participants will learn how to use math, science, technology and creativity to develop new innovations.
Engineers Canada has also launched a new National Engineering Month website to help young Canadians to engage with the engineering discipline. The website includes an interactive “Chart Your Course” feature for visitors to discover areas of engineering that they are most interested in. The website also provides a list of events happening across Canada gives visitors the chance to explore various engineering disciplines.
“National Engineering Month is a great time for Canada’s youth to discover their place in engineering,” said Engineers Canada Chief Executive Officer Kim Allen, FEC, P.Eng, FCAE, MBA. “Engineering is the foundation of a fulfilling career if you like being creative, working with great people, travelling, solving problems and being rewarded for your work.
