Apply for the BEST Courses of the Summer!

It’s one of the most wonderful times of the year; BEST Summer Course Application Season!

The Board of European Students of Technology (BEST) is inviting Canadian engineering student volunteers to apply to attend their complementary education courses all over Europe!

These are short courses (usually 2 weeks in duration) that focus on a particular technical aspect “aimed at increasing and widening the professional knowledge in a certain field of technology, especially concerning modern technical applications of technology and the latest research achievements.”

As a volunteer you’ll have the opportunity to meet Engineering students from all over Europe, to learn about a technical topic, to learn how complementary education courses are organised in BEST, to get to know a European city and, of course, to have fun.

In the attachment of this e-mail you will find a list with all the available courses for the upcoming Summer season (there’s 49 in total this season) as well as further details on the application process, and expectations of your role as a CFES volunteer.

All Engineering Students from a CFES member school are welcome to apply. Deadline for applications is April 15th, 2016.

I encourage everyone who is able, to apply- this is an amazing opportunity to learn from experts about diverse technical topics and network with students from countries across Europe.

Check out this application document to learn more! List of Summer Courses Descriptions (BEST Summer 2016)

Pie In The Eye

The Regina Engineering Students’ Spciety is proud to present Pie in the Eye 2016, from March 14th-18th, 9am-5pm.

The organization we are doing this for is the Soul’s Harbour Rescue Mission. They provide aid for those in need in the form of food, shelter, clothes and other necessities. This specifically is going towards their new development, the “Samaritan Project”, which is a plan to expand and build a new more sustainable and environmentally conscious building.

The rules are as followed:

Pies are able to be sent to anyone in the city of Regina for a minimum of $10. The person that is targeted has the following options on how to deal with their situation:
1) The the pie to the face
2) Pay the current value of the pie + $5 to pass it on to another person. This increases the value of the pie (ex: if somebody paid $15 to send a pie to somebody named Brad Lulik, he would have to pay $20 to redirect it and the current value of the pie is now $20)
*Pies may not be sent back to the sender, however new pies can be started and sent back.
3) Pay the current value of the pie + $10 to stop the pie.
For any engineering students who would like to help with this fantastic event by delivering pies, please sign up for shifts here!
