Canada’s largest celebration of engineering excellence kicks off on March 1!
An annual national campaign featuring fun and inspiring events that will spark an interest in the next generation of engineers, National Engineering Month also celebrates the role that engineers play in society. Every year in March, thousands of youth, parents, teachers, engineering students, and engineers-in-training interact with engineers and others who volunteer their time to host events that demonstrate how rewarding a career in engineering can be.
Presented by Engineers Canada, National Engineering Month revolves around the theme, “There’s A Place For You in Engineering.”
“National Engineering Month celebrates the diversity of thought, opportunities, and people that make up the engineering profession, and demonstrates that there’s a place for everyone in engineering,” says Gerard McDonald, Engineers Canada’s Chief Executive Officer. “National Engineering Month demonstrates how engineering shapes our daily lives, and the month fosters a strong, diverse, and inclusive engineering culture in Canada.”
