WHAT IS NATIONAL ENGINEERING MONTH?

Each March, the engineering community across Canada celebrates National Engineering Month, Canada’s largest celebration of engineering excellence. Created in 1992 by Engineers Canada and the provincial and territorial engineering regulators, National Engineering Month sees the engineering profession spark an interest in the next generation of engineering professionals and to the engineering community to celebrate the role that engineers play in society. With its 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.
