Launch of National Engineering Month website geared to students
Students now have access to a revamped online resource for learning about career opportunities in engineering with the launch of the National Engineering Month website.
Engineers Canada said the redesigned website will promote learning about the different types of engineering and how engineers use creativity and problem-solving skills. Along with a 2011 event listing for each province and territory, the website features engineer profiles, examples of great Canadian engineering achievements and games and puzzles.
Organized by the profession’s 12 provincial and territorial regulatory bodies, teachers, faculties, volunteers and university students, National Engineering Month is an annual celebration of Canadian engineering excellence that promotes engineering as a career choice to youth.
During March, events such as design competitions, robotics demonstrations and science and engineering fairs will teach students how to use math, science, technology and creativity to generate things that were once thought impossible.
Yes Mag, an award-winning Canadian youth science magazine, is the official sponsor of the National Engineering Month website. Partners are the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies-Canada, Canadian Academy of Engineering, Engineering Institute of Canada and the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students. The website address is: www.nem-mng.ca.
